A Divers Prayer


Almighty God,
Our Heavenly Father,
we, who descend into the depths of the seas,
beseech Thee to protect and guide us inYour Aquatic Kingdom.
We pray that Thee can find a worth in those who search the waters of the Seven Seas to increase the knowledge of man,
to seek and understand the vast mysteries of our past as well as that abundant world which lives below the surface of the water, and to enjoy this new found world and all it has to offer.
As we small people work below ,
Dear God, watch over us and help us to return safely to our earth-world.
But, Heavenly Father, should we perish in this watery-world,
we beg that Thee will forgive our earthly sins,
cleanse our hearts and souls, and lead us to Thy Celestial Kingdom to serve Thee forever and ever.
