Apostleship of the Sea > more prayers
Be with us, O Lord, on this voyage, to cheer us and keep us safe in alldangers.
Let nothing afloat or on shore cut us off from you.
May we please you in everything we do.Bless all on board, whatever their responsibility.
Enable every man to do his duty.
Help us to be good shipmates and bring us back again in safety to our homes,
and those who long for our return, through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
