When Peter noticed the strong wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!”.
All over the world, in differing cultures and countries, this fact holds true: parents who fall asleep at night, exhausted, wake up instantly at the slightest sound or movement made by their babies. The same thing happens when we provide care for parents or other adults. Their softest cry or whispered word wakes us up. Imagine how much more attentive God is to our cries and needs, especially when he hears us say, “Lord, save me!”
