Mark 4:35-41

Loving Divine Family,

We gather together in boats; in your presence, we journey with you towards your intended destination. We see the danger of the storms around us and become fearful. We call out to you; you invite us into your sacred prayer space, where we can hear your voice. You bring peace in the chaos, reminding us that nothing can prevent your will from being fulfilled.

Loving God, we love you and follow you. We are in the boat, excited to get to the other side. Thank you we can call out to you in the storms of our lives. We take comfort in hearing you quiet the storms and reminding us to be still. Thank you for not abandoning us. You are with us, helping us to move from fear to faith.

I am amazed in your presence today, Loving Jesus, and thank you for…

We will follow you to the other side of the mountains, valleys, and seas. We will not fear the storms. We will not fear the winds or darkness; you are the storms, winds, and darkness. Let the wind blow, let the rain fall, and let the evil one devise his plans. We place our trust in you alone.   

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
