A Prayer for Thursday, August 25, 2011

“The Wind Was Against Them”

Sometimes out there where we find ourselves, O Lord—at times because we chose to go there, at times because you sent us there, and on rare occasions when both realities are happening at the same time—we find ourselves being battered, beaten, and threatened because everything, despite our best intentions and even our best obedience, seems to be working against us.

At those times, O Lord, remind us to look for you because chances are excellent that you are just beyond the horizon, if not coming right up behind us.


“But by this time the boat, battered by the waves, was far from the land, for the wind was against them.” (Matthew 14:24)
