Jesus Calms the Storm

"Let's cross the sea," Jesus said.

Jesus was tired and wanted to sleep.

The men with Jesus started sailing the boat across the sea.

Then the wind started to blow really hard.

Huge waves crashed against the little boat.

Water poured over the sides, and the boat began to sink.

Jesus was asleep.

The men called out to him, "We're drowning.  Help us!"

Jesus got up.

He saw the terrible wind and the huge waves.

He raised his hand and said, "Peace!  Be still!"

Instantly, the wind stopped.

The sea was calm.

Jesus turned to the men and asked, "Why were you afraid?  Where was your faith?"

The men were amazed.

Boy, that was really something!
What do you think?

Would you have asked Jesus to quiet the storm?

Would you have thought he could make it still?

Write to me and tell me what you think, BUT, ask your parents first.

Let's Pray:
Dear God,
Help me to keep my faith.
Please, Lord, don't let me ever forget.
This I ask through Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Can you think of a better prayer?
