On the same day, when evening had come, he said to them, "Let us cross over to the other side." Now when they had left the multitude, they took him along in the boat as he was. And other little boats were also with him. (Mark 4:35-36)
Jesus, please help us take you "as you are", not as we want you to be. You are the one who ever lives to intercede for us. Please intercede for us now.
And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. But he was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke him and said to him, "Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?" (Mark 4:37-38 )
Lord Jesus, we are in the midst of many great storms in our lives. Please help us in our weakness and fear.
Then he arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But he said to them, "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?" (Mark 4:39-40)
Lord Jesus Christ, speak those words, "Peace, be still!" to our hearts and to the storms we fear.
And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, "Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey him!" (Mark 4:41)
Holy Father, through the work of your Holy Spirit, please help us hold Jesus in revernt awe and remember all that he has done and is doing for us. Thank you.
A word received: My word is faithful.
