October 13 Prayer
“Only in God is my soul at rest,
from Him comes my hope and salvation.
Everything I need comes from him.
He’s a solid rock underneath my feet,
breathing room for my soul,
I shall not be disturbed at all.” Ps.62:1-2
This is easier said than done.
We all certainly need some supernatural power
to live undisturbed and in a calm state of peace.
In the middle of the storm Jesus was resting in the stern of the boat.
He was not disturbed by the storm but by the lack of faith of those that were paralyzed by their own fears.
It only took his word of courage and command to calm the storm.
“So why would I let worry paralyze me when troubles multiply around me?
God’s glory is all around me! His wrap around presence is all I need…” vs 6-7
Today as you pray, take some breathing room for your soul as
the Holy Spirit fills you with courage and faith.
“Holy Spirit of Peace come and fill us with your power to trust and rest in you.
We give to you all of our efforts, our struggles and distress.
Give us the eyes to see your all surrounding presence throughout this day.
May we bring your words of courage to calm the troubles we see in others.
May we return to rest on solid ground trusting in your power to calm all of the storms that rage around us.
Every moment we will trust in your love.
All glory to your name Jesus.
Mark 4:39-41, Ps.62
