Luke 8:22-25

One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s go over to the other side of the lake”. So they got into a boat and set out. As they sailed he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger. The disciples went and woke him saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided and all was calm. “Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples. In fear and amazement they asked one another, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him.”

A Celtic Prayer

Calm me Lord as you calmed the storm. Still me Lord keeping me from harm. Let all tumult within me cease. Enfold me Lord in Your peace.

We pray

Dear Lord, In this life there will be storms. Storms that cause our world to rock and shake. Storms that make us feel like we are sinking. Lord, bring Your peace and calm to the storms. Remind us that you are with us and that you control the waters.

In Jesus’ name
