This is a guided prayer for the first week of Lent. Get your FREE lent guide here.

This week our meditation passage (released on 2.19.24) was Matthew 14:22-33. In this account, Peter walked on water. He was brave and bold when he stepped out of the boat. But the wind kicked up and distracted him from Jesus. When Peter took his eyes off Jesus, Peter let fear consume him and started to sink.

In this guided prayer we will take a moment to identify what situations are making us fearful, confess our fears to God, and then receive God’s love and courage to help us choose to have faith over fear.
