Push out into deep water this year

Recommended Posts

Sir Frances Drake, the first Englishman to navigate the globe spoke these words in prayer:


Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves.

When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little,

When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to shore.


Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly,

To venture on wider seas

Where storms will show your mastery;

Where losing sight of land

We shall find stars.


We ask you to push back

The horizons of our hopes;

And to push us in the future

In strength, courage, hope and love.


Sir Francis Drake, December 1577

:woohoo: Perfect prayer. We got to learn to know our Lord and the plans He has for us. The only way to do that is to step out of the boat. We might stumble , we might shake, but the Lord has us in His hands all the time.
