For the Captain:
Heavenly Father, you are responsible for the earth and sea and all that is in it; help me as Captain of this craft to bear the responsibility you have given me. Let me use my authority as you use yours, with justice and mercy. Help me to be alert to the sea and weather so I might be prepared for any eventuality. Keep me sensible to the needs of my crew and help me to listen to their opiniopns. When I am in doubt, keep me from anger and panic, and grant me a clear mind so I can handle any situation. In all things, most heavenly Father, give me your grace to operate this boat in your honor and glory. AMEN
(There are "folk art" sketches with many of the prayers.)
