A Puritan Prayer

O Lord of the Oceans,

My little bark sails on a restless sea: grant that Jesus may sit at the helm and steer me safely. Suffer no adverse currents to divert my heavenward course. Let not my faith be wrecked amid storms and shoals. Bring me to harbor with flying pennants, hull unbreached, cargo unspoiled.

I ask great things, expect great things, shall receive great things. I venture on Thee wholly, fully – my wind, sunshine, anchor, defense.

The voyage is long, the waves high, the storms pitiless, but my helm is held steady. Thy Word secures safe passage, Thy grace wafts me onward, my haven is guaranteed.
