After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.

Matthew 14:23-24

The Lord knew the storm was coming, but continued in prayer, also knowing he would be there to calm the waves and the disciples’ distress, whilst teaching them deeper faith. He has made everything beautiful in its time (Eccl.3:11).
