Lord I come to you on this night with a pleading heart, for there are many who are drowning in the stormy seas of life as they have not yet chosen you to be their lifeguard who is always on duty. The disbelief that those “lost at sea” carry within is beginning to weigh them down, for they are slowly sinking towards the abyss. As the winds from the sea blow across the shoreline I can hear the cries of those lost, for without your grace and mercy, the rising tides and their tears that fall will soon become one. Lord there was a time when I was “lost at sea” and I thought you did not hear my cries, but you saved me from a watery grave. Lord there are still many “lost at sea” and I pray that you hear their cries, for those sinking now know that they cannot stay afloat without you in their lives. Lord I also pray that you show the lost ones mercy, and that the rising tides and their falling tears never become one.
“He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.”
