Waiting for the Storm

My father-in-law* sat in his Florida home, waiting and watching for Hurricane Irma to arrive.

Every time I spoke with him he quoted Philippians 4:6-7. “In everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds.”

He found this to be true.

So can you.

*His home and neighborhood, though buffeted by winds, were virtually unharmed by the storm.


Glory to God; Peace to Men

The glory and peace that angels proclaimed (see Luke 2:13-14) when Jesus was born are realized today when we pray.

Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son (John 14:13).

Let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God will guard your hearts and minds (from Philippians 4:6-7).
