Prayer of the Month

The Lord is my Pilot, 
I shall not drift.
He lights me across the dark waters,
He steers me through the deep channels.

He keeps my log. 
He guides me by the Star of Holiness
for his Name’s sake.
As I sail through the storms
and Tempests of life
I shall dread no Danger,
for You are near me,
Your Love and Care shelter me.

You prepare a haven before me
in the Homeland of Eternity.
You quieten the waves with oil,
my ship rides calmly.
Surely sunshine and starlight
Shall be with me wherever I sail.
And at the end of my voyaging,
I shall rest in the Port of my God.
