Let us be in prayer for the people of the Bahamas and in particular the Abacos. May lives be preserved and people remain safe.

As we continue to nervously await Dorian’s impact on our area, we pray for peace, comfort, and safety.

I have found myself reading the following passage from Mark 4:35-41 during this approaching storm.

Jesus stops a storm

“35 Later that day, when evening came, Jesus said to them, “Let’s cross over to the other side of the lake.” 36 They left the crowd and took him in the boat just as he was. Other boats followed along.

37 Gale-force winds arose, and waves crashed against the boat so that the boat was swamped. 38 But Jesus was in the rear of the boat, sleeping on a pillow. They woke him up and said, “Teacher, don’t you care that we’re drowning?”

39 He got up and gave orders to the wind, and he said to the lake, “Silence! Be still!” The wind settled down and there was a great calm. 40 Jesus asked them, “Why are you frightened? Don’t you have faith yet?”

41 Overcome with awe, they said to each other, “Who then is this? Even the wind and the sea obey him!”

Y’all are in my thoughts and prayers.

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone after the storm!
