Psalm 118:1-7 NIV

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
  his love endures forever.
Let Israel say:
  “His love endures forever.”
Let the house of Aaron say:
  “His love endures forever.”
Let those who fear the Lord say:
  “His love endures forever.”
In my anguish I cried to the Lord,
  and he answered by setting me free.
The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid.
  What can man do to me?
The Lord is with me; he is my helper.
  I will look in triumph on my enemies.


Midday Prayer

Eternal God, source of everlasting light,
send forth your truth into our hearts,
and bring us into your presence with joy and gladness
in the name of Jesus Christ the Lord.


Mark 4:35-41

That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”

He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.

He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
