I have a question for you on this National Day of Prayer! How bold are your prayers? As John Wesley crossed the Atlantic, he was reading in his cabin, and became aware of heavy winds knocking the ship off course. He responded in prayer and a colleague wrote it down:
“Almighty and everlasting God. . .Thou holdest the winds in thy fists and sittest upon the water floods. . .command those winds and these waves that they obey Thee. Take us speedily and safely to the haven whither we would go.”
On deck his colleague found calm winds and the ship on course. Wesley made no mention of the answered prayer. His friend wrote, “So fully did he expect to be heard that he took it for granted he was heard.”
