Prayer is our Refuge!

Where to find refuge when life gets you down? Our safe haven is prayer! You can weather the storms of life through prayer. "Beginning to sink, he (Peter) cried, saying, 'Lord, save me'." Matthew 14:30

Sinking Times Are Praying Times for the Lord's Servants

Peter neglected prayer at starting upon his venturous journey, but when he began to sink his danger made him a suppliant, and his cry though late was not too late. In our hours of bodily pain and mental anguish, we find ourselves as naturally driven to prayer as the wreck is driven upon the shore by the waves. The fox has its hole for protection; the bird flies to the trees for shelter; and even so the tried believer hastens to the mercy seat for safety.

Short prayers are long enough. There were only three words in the petition which Peter gasped out, “Lord save me!” The words were sufficient for his purpose. Not length but strength is desirable. A sense of need is a mighty teacher of brevity.

If our prayers had less of the tail feathers of pride and more wing they would be all the better. Verbiage is to devotion as chaff to the wheat. Precious things lie in small compass, and all that is real prayer in many a long address might have been uttered in a petition as short as that of Peter.

Our extremities are the Lord's opportunities. Immediately a keen sense of danger forces an anxious cry from us the ear of Jesus hears. At the last moment we appeal to our Master, but His swift hand makes up for our delays by instant and effectual action. Are we nearly engulfed by the boisterous waters of affliction?

Let us then lift up our souls unto our Saviour, and we may rest assured that He will not suffer us to perish. When we can do nothing Jesus can do all things; let us enlist His powerful aid upon our side, and all will be well!
