Matthew 8:26 Then [Jesus] got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.
Dear Jesus, you are in control of all things. Even when the winds of misfortune and the waves of uncertainty blow into my life you remain in control. Yet, I admit, that isn’t always easy to believe and understand when things don’t go the way I planned. In fact, sometimes I become frustrated, upset, and even resentful toward you during the storms that arise in my life. On account of your blood shed for me on the cross forgive me for this sinful attitude. When the winds and waves rage in my life help me hear your voice which will comfort me. Lead me to look to you for safety and peace because you are in control of all things. In your powerful name I pray. Amen.
