God the Father, when your Son is still with his chosen ones, he stilled the storm of the sea, and he imparted a valuable lesson: that in the midst of trembling, one has to foster faith above all else. He showed to us what we must fear above all else: doubt, since doubt is our way of not trusting you, Who is above all else.

Now we experience the familiar trembling in our hearts. In these hours of fear, we turn again to you, in the name of Jesus, that we may face the storms of life with faith and trust in You. We turn to you as nature accuses us of its weary lot, since we profess ourselves as your children, and You as our Father.

We invoke the most powerful name of Jesus, to calm the storms of life. And may every storm lead to the restoration of peace, and most of all -- to our unshakable faith in you.

We ask the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary and of all the saints, that they may send you their sweetest supplications. Look with love and mercy to us, who with them, are co-heirs to the heavenly promises. May your protection be ever felt like never before.

We ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.
