Regarding the headline “Pacific storm fizzles after dire warnings” (The Daily Astorian, Oct. 17), and sub-headline “Why wasn’t it so intense?”:

No. 1, God is sovereign and controls the weather.

No. 2, a simple yet effective prayer — “God, please divert the storm from this area and cause it to dissolve and fade to nothing; please keep the power on for life sustainment” — subdued the intensity of the predicted storm.

No. 3, it was a powerful demonstration of his protection, strength and mercy to us. He deserves a standing ovation. Let’s give him one.
