About Today Readings

Genesis 19:15-29. Psalm 25(26):2-3, 9-12. Matthew 8:23-27.
O Lord, your kindness is before my eyes – Psalm 25(26):2-3, 9-12
‘Save us, Lord, we are perishing!’

When I am in a panic, I forget my God and cling to fear. Afterwards, I feel quite foolish, and resolve that next time things will be different. Then ‘next time’ comes, and it all happens again.

Lord Jesus, had I been in the boat with you and the disciples, I may have done what they did. Faith is alright for fine weather, but when the boat starts to rock, what guarantees do I have? Somehow, I know that it is at exactly these times that faith and trust are worth their names – but I need your help to live that belief out.

Spirit of life, help me to keep my hands open in asking and not clenched in fear. Please accompany me in my pain, misfortune and vulnerability, that you may bring me closer to you, and that I may know your friendship.
