The Collect/Prayer of the Day
O God, our defender, storms rage about us and cause us to fear. Rescue your people from despair, deliver your heirs from fear, and preserve us from unbelief; through your son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Job 38:1-11; 2 Corinthians 5:14-21; Mark 4:35-41
Hidden in the stern of the boat is the very power which wind and sea obey, the power which prescribes bounds for the sea. From the human point of view, he is asleep in the boat, then dead on the cross. But hidden in this victim of raging chaos is the very power which brings new creation out of chaos, life out of death, the kingdom of God out of warring kingdoms of this world. And that power of Christ controls our lives, for in him we are a "new creation."
