Tuesday, June 25, is the International Day of the Seafarer. In the words of the hymn,
Eternal Father, Strong to Save (ELW 756), we pray for sailors and all who travel by sea:
Eternal Father, strong to save,
whose arm has bound the restless wave,
who bade the mighty ocean deep
its own appointed limits keep:
oh, hear us when we cry to thee
for those in peril on the sea.
