The Naval Prayer

For those who have served, are serving and for those who never came home

“O eternal Lord God, Who alone spreadest out the heavens and rulest the raging of the seas; who hast compassed the waters with bounds until day and night come to an end: be pleased to receive  into thy almighty and most gracious protection the persons of us thy servants and the fleet in which we serve. Preserve us from the dangers of the sea and of the air and from the violence of the enemy: that we may be safeguard unto our most sovereign lady, Queen Elizabeth, and her dominions, and a security for such as pass on the seas upon their lawful occasions; that the inhabitants of our island and commonwealth may in peace and quietness serve thee our God; and that we may return in safety to enjoy the blessings of the land, with fruits of our labours and with a thankful remembrance of thy mercies to praise and glorify thy holy name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen”
