Opening Prayer

God of storms, seas and seasons, we believe that it is You Who separated the waters and contain it so that creation does not drown. We are sorry that we panic and lose faith in Your abiding protection when the waves unground and scare us. In Christ, we are to trust You, because in Him You trust Yourself to dwell in us. Anchor us in faith, that we may trust You amid smooth waters and turbulent waves. You are the God of all creation and You hold us tenderly in the palm of Your powerful hands. Thank you!
