This is seafarer awareness week ( in the UK.)
But, every single one of us relies on the important work of seafarers - bringing fuel, clothing, electrical good, gas, food, etc etc to our countries.
These seafarers can be away from home for 9 months it’s not the easiest of lives - loneliness, long working hours, tough conditions, threat of piracy…the list continues (I know, I myself was a seafarer).
If you can, include them and their families in your prayer at some point this week.
*Lord God, Creator of land and sea, bless those who work at sea. Be with them in fair weather and foul, in danger or distress. Strengthen them when weary, lift them up when down and comfort them when far from their loved ones. In this life, bring them safely to shore and, in the life to come, welcome them to your kingdom. Amen *
