God, as storms prepare to devastate the land of Haiti and its people, I cry out to you.

I beg for your mercy to spare the lives of people, to protect their homes, to comfort hearts.

In the past, you simply said, “Peace, be still,” and a storm stopped.

I ask that you would do it again today.

Help Haiti. Bring peace. Still the storm.

As only you can.

 26 He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.

 27 The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”

-Mark 8:23-27
