10th Sunday after Pentecost
God of awesome wonder:
Bless us with bold belief
Even in the darkness of the night
And the assault of life’s storms,
That we may be messengers
Of your peace and justice;
In the name of the One whom winds and waves obey,
And who lives and reigns with you and the Holy
Spirit, one God, now and forever.
Listen to the Good News proclaimed by Matthew 14:22-33
