"Lord, save me!"

But when (Peter) saw how strong the wind was
he became frightened;
and, beginning to sink, he cried out,
"Lord, save me!"

Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand
and caught him,
and said to him,
"O you of little faith,
why did you doubt?"

(Matthew 14:30-31 - from today's Gospel)
