Prayers for Mariners
« on: June 18, 2014, 03:17:43 PM »
I'll be departing for a commercial halibut fishing trip pretty soon with a number of relatives. I'd ask that you please pray for us, as well as my father and my uncle who are currently on trips of their own.

If not for our success, please pray that all of us return safely to port.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy.
For questions about the history of the Lutheran faith see the Book of Concord available from Pastor's office.

Formula of Concord 1577

A restatement of some teachings in the Augsburg Confession over which Lutherans had become divided. The Solid Declaration is the unabridged version. The Epitome is an abridged version intended for congregations to study. Over 8,100 pastors and theologians signed it, as well as over 50 government leaders.

Through the intercession of St. Nicholas of Myra, grant a safe fishing trip.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

I'm heading out on another trip this week and since most everybody from before is going to be out at sea as well, I thought I'd ask that you please pray for the lot of us once more.

Thank you.

My father and I will be departing later this evening for our first trip of the salmon season. On later trips, my sister will also be joining us.

Though calm seas aren't very conducive to salmon fishing, the weather last year proved to be less kind than I would have liked. A prayer on our behalf would be appreciated.

A little later than usual but, all the same, I'd ask for prayers for my own self, my captain and his son, and all the various members of my extended family currently fishing or soon to resume.

The season for my particular fishery began a week or so ago and I'll be heading out on my first trip in the morning. Each year has been successively worse as far as I'm concerned and this year's salmon run projection isn't all that good either. Please say a prayer for the lot of us.

Doing something a bit different this year. Still salmon, though a different fishery. Earlier departure, longer season, harder work but hopefully more rewarding. I don't anticipate having much access to the internet out there, so I'll see the lot of you on the other side.

Thanks for the prayers.
