A Prayer for the U.S. Coast Guard
We intercede for the men and the women
Serving in the US Coast Guard.
Grant them diligence as Guardian Angels
Watching o’er seafarers sailing the seas.
Grant them accuracy while searching about
For those unaware of life’s stormy seas.
Grant that their soundings and markings shall be
Effectual in providing safe haven for these.
As they guard our coasts, assure them that when
They pass through the waters,
You will still be with them.
Assure these gate keepers to Your heavenly lights
That we will keep lower lights burning for them
In godly service to You and our country. Amen.
– Chaplain James F. Linzey
