So what does God do while we are enduring the pain? What
does he do while we are in the storm? You’ll love this. He prays for us. Jesus wasn’t in the boat because he had gone to the hills to pray (Mark 6:46). Jesus prayed. That is remarkable. It is even more remarkable that Jesus didn’t stop praying when his disciples were struggling. When he heard their cries, he remained in prayer. Why?
Two possible answers. Either he didn’t care, or he believed in prayer. I think you know the correct choice.
And you know what? Jesus hasn’t changed. He still prays for
his disciples. “Because Jesus lives forever, he will never stop serving as priest. So he is able always to save those who come to God through him because he always lives, asking God to help them” (Heb. 7:24–25).
