Autism

Mark 4:39 (ESV)

And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

O Father,

Just as Jesus said “Peace!  Be still!” to the wind and sea, we say ‘Peace!  Be still!’ to the chaos in the body, soul, and spirit of autistics, especially _____.  ‘Peace!  Be still!’ to the chaos in their families.

Let the day be blessed on which ______  was born, and the night that said, ‘A child is conceived.’  Let that day be light! May God above seek it, and light shine upon it. Let joy and brilliant light claim it. Let azure skies dwell upon it; let the brightness of the day bring peace.

That night–let refulgent light overtake it! Let it rejoice among the days of the year; let it come into the number of the months. Behold, let that night be fruitful; let a joyful cry enter it.  Let those bless it who bless the day, who are ready to pacify Leviathan.  Amen.

Job 3:3-8
