Church Write-Up: Praying for Storms?

One point made at church this morning, in both the service and Sunday school, was that God works in the midst of life’s storms. Maybe we should pray for storms, the youth pastor said, because that would be a time to see God work. Something that is inspiring about being part of a church body is that I encounter people who are faithful to God, even though they have experienced difficult times. One lady I know lost two of her children years ago, and only one survives. I do not pray for storms, though. I want things to run at least fairly smoothly. I know people who have lost loved ones to cancer, and I am glad that I have not lost loved ones to cancer.
