Matthew 8:25-26 They came and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!” He said to them, “Why are you terrified, O you of little faith?” Then he got up, rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was great calm.
Dream: I dreamed that we were being warned about a sudden cold front, more severe and fast-moving than ever had been seen before. It would come down from the arctic and swoop down to cover all of North America and beyond. Almost as soon as we heard the warning it was upon us, even though the weather had been nice just before. Suddenly there was thick frost on the windows. The dream ended there.
I believe this dream has many levels and is, as always a call to prayer. Are we in for a hard winter? Perhaps. If not in weather, then perhaps in the coldness of men’s hearts. Perhaps in the coldness of war or terror attacks. When I asked the Lord for a Scripture passage, I was led to Matthew 8: 23-27—Jesus stills the storm. The same day, I read about the Holy Father’s worldwide call to fasting and prayer for peace in Syria and the Middle East. He has set September 7, the vigil of the nativity of Mary, as the date to fast and pray for this intention. This, I believe, confirms the dream as a call to invoke Our Lord and Our Lady in this matter.
I was then reminded of a previous blog post, from May 12, 2008 which quotes the same Scripture passage:
“My beloved, the storm is coming; many will be terrified. But you my child must be the one to say, ‘Fear not! The Lord is in the boat with us. He is the Lord of the wind and the waves. Do not be afraid, but believe!’ My child, if you do this many will come to believe. Have faith. I am near.”
Jesus and Mary we trust in you!
Please pass on the Holy Father’s call to fasting and prayer. Here is the article on Zenit.
