PostSubject: Prayer rises to God on the wings of faith   Tue Jun 28, 2011 11:07 am

Prayer rises to God on the wings of faith, for without faith our prayer is not accepted and our petition refused.

Daily Reading & Meditation

Tuesday (6/28): "Why are you afraid, O men of little faith?"

Scripture: Matthew 8:23-27

23 And when he got into the boat, his disciples followed him. 24 And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but he was asleep. 25 And they went and woke him, saying, "Save, Lord; we are perishing." 26 And he said to them, "Why are you afraid, O men of little faith?" Then he rose and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. 27 And the men marveled, saying, "What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him?"

Meditation: What is stronger than fear, even the fear of death? Scripture gives an answer: “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear” (1 John 4:18). The Wisdom of Solomon tells us that “love is stronger than death” (Song of Songs 8:6). Jesus' sleeping presence on the storm-tossed sea reveals the sleeping faith of his disciples. They feared for their lives even though their Lord and Master was with them in the boat. They were asleep to Christ while he was present to them in their hour of need. The Lord is ever present to us. And in our time of testing he asks the same question: Why are you afraid? Have you no faith? Do you recognize the Lord’s presence with you, especially when you meet the storms of adversity, sorrow, or temptation? Whenever we encounter trouble, the Lord is there with the same reassuring message: “It is I, do not be afraid”.

In today's world, in our lives; Are we looking to Him, or to ourselves?

"Lord, may I always recognize your abiding presence with me. And in times of trouble or fear may I find courage and strength to respond as you would. Help me to rely upon you in all circumstances and to trust in your help both in adversity and in temptation".

Psalm 5:4-8

4 For you are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not sojourn with you.
5 The boastful may not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers.
6 You destroy those who speak lies; the LORD abhors bloodthirsty and deceitful men.
7 But I through the abundance of your steadfast love will enter your house, I will worship toward your holy temple in the fear of you.
8 Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me.
