Midweek Morsel: The One Who Stills Storms


“He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm and he guided them to their desired haven.” Psalm 107:29-30

One thing I love about scripture is how we can pray it back to the One who gave it. His words can guide our prayers and express our hearts’ deepest desires, requests, fears, joys, and thanksgivings. Won’t you pray back the verses above with me today?

“O Mighty God and Heavenly Father, thank you so much for being a God who is able to still the storms in my life to a whisper. Thank you for hushing the waves that threaten to engulf me.

Lord, the calm you’ve blessed me with is such a welcome relief and lifesaver, and I rejoice in you and your good gift. Thank you for guiding me to the haven I so desperately needed. Thank you for being the One who stills storms.”

“And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.” Mark 4:39 KJV

  1. Jennifer, so glad this verse was encouraging to you today. Sorry to hear that you’ve got an issue in your neighborhood right now — and also sorry to hear about the illness at your house. Sure hope you’re all well soon!

  2. I LOVE your idea of praying back scripture–how beautiful. Just did that. So grateful for our confidence in His presence through the storms and the stillness!

  3. Cheryl, you always seem to come up with “morsels” that fit my need. I am going to keep this prayer, as I think I will be repeating it many times in the future.
    Are you missing the fellowship at Beautiful Feet this weekend as I am??

    • Judy, so glad this morsel ministered to your need today — thanks for letting me know. Always such a blessing to hear comments like yours. And yes, I’m missing the fellowship at Beautiful Feet this weekend, too. So thankful for the fellowship we’ve shared with you and Larry and others there in past years. What blessing!
