Introduction and Call to Worship
Let us rejoice today in the God who never loses faith in us. Whatever our background, whatever our weaknesses, whatever troubles there may be in our lives, may our worship strengthen our faith in the one who alone has the power to save.
Almighty God, who sent your Holy Spirit to be the life and light of your Church: open our hearts to the riches of your grace, that we may bring forth the fruit of the Spirit in love and joy and peace; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen
First Reading. Genesis 37:1-4. 12-28
The familiar story of Joseph’s brothers selling him into slavery in Egypt reminds us how jealousy can destroy a relationship, but later God would bring good out of a seemingly impossible situation.
Second Reading Romans 10:5-15
Paul reminds us of our calling to help others believe in Jesus, for it is faith in him which has the power to save.
Gospel of Matthew 14:22-33
When Peter took his eyes off Jesus, he momentarily lost faith in his own ability to do as Jesus commanded, but still knew Jesus could save him.

Post Communion Prayer:
Holy Father, who gathered us here around the table of your Son to share this meal with the whole household of God: in that new world where you reveal the fullness of your peace, gather people of every race and language to share in the eternal banquet of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

A few thoughts for this week.
Apologising doesn’t mean you’re wrong and the other person is right. It means that you value your relationship more than your ego.
Jesus doesn’t care how many bible verses your have memorise. He cares how you treat people.
Finally, You only fail when you stop trying.
A prayer for this week
Lord Jesus, today as I face down my giants, I declare that you are the one that fights for me! You bring victory. You lead me to high places where I can see things from Your perspective. I trust You today. I will follow where you lead. I’ll say what You tell me to say. Overwhelming victory is mine because I am Yours! I stand strong because You’re strong in me! Amen
