Even in panic

The Fifth Sunday after Epiphany

Come quickly and help me, my Lord, my salvation! ~ Psalm 38:22 (CEB)

Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. The disciples woke him up, shouting, “Teacher, don’t you care that we’re going to drown?” ~ Mark 4:38 (NLT)

Sometimes we don't think of asking for God's help until it is a panic situation.
Lord Jesus -- Savior, thank you for responding to my cries for help even when they come at the last desperate minute. It's so tempting to rely on my own ability until that no longer seems possible. Prompt me to turn to you early and often so that I can avoid the panic situation. Amen.
