S – Scripture: Psalm 107:25-32 (TPT)
When God spoke he stirred up a storm, lifting high the waves with hurricane winds. Ships were tossed by swelling sea, rising to the sky, then dropping down to the depths reeling like a drunkards, spinning like tops, everyone at their wits end until every sailor despaired of life cringing in terror, Then we cried out, "Lord help us rescue us " and He did, God stilled the storm, calmed the waters & hushed the hurricane winds to only a whisper, we were so relieved so glad as he guided us safely to harbour in a quite haven. So lift your hands & give thanks to God for His marvellous kindness & for His miracles of mercy for those He loves, let us exalt Him on high & lift up our praise in public, let all the people & leaders of nations know how great & wonderful is Yahweh our God.
