Eternal Father, Strong to Save

“With all prayer and petition, pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints.” Ephesians 6:18 NASB

If you missed yesterday’s (March 11) message by Dutch Sheets, it is encouraging:

Also, at http://www.ifapray.org are prayers to come in agreement with, especially for the families of those involved in the conflict over Ukraine.

Since trouble has come to many places, this familiar hymn came to mind, to use, too, for encouragement and as a prayer. Though originally written for those who are at sea, I altered the verses to include land and sea. Another version from 1940, with different wording, includes air, land, and sea.

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bids the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep;
O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on land and sea.


2 O Savior, whose almighty word
The winds and waves submissive heard,
Who walked upon the foaming deep,
And calm amid the rage did sleep;
O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on land and sea.


3 O Holy Spirit, who did brood
Upon the waters dark and rude,
And bid their angry tumult cease,
And give for wild confusion peace;
O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on land and sea.


4 O Trinity of love and pow’r,
Your children shield in danger’s hour;
From rock and tempest, fire, and foe,
Protect them where-so-e’er they go;
Thus, evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.

William Whiting
Written, 1860

On the March 10 Flashpoint program, information was shared on efforts to help Jewish people leaving Ukraine and Russia to make aliyah, their return to Israel, as the Bible has prophesied:

“And He will raise up a signal for the nations and will assemble the outcasts of Israel and will gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.” Isaiah 11:12
