Seeking safety in a storm

With so many weather-related disasters in the news, from wildfires in areas affected by drought to hurricanes and tornadoes, it’s natural to yearn for help from a higher power. But can we expect God to answer our prayers about the weather? 

Yes! The Bible offers reassuring examples. One that I love is related in the book of Mark (see 4:35–41). When Christ Jesus and his disciples were at sea, a violent storm came up and battered their ship, threatening to sink it. The disciples were terrified. But to their surprise, Jesus was asleep, unjarred by what looked like certain disaster. “Master,” they cried, “carest thou not that we perish?” 

Then, the Bible tells us, “he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.”
