Steer the ship of my life, good Lord, to the quiet harbor,
where I can be safe from the storms of sin and conflict.
Show me the course I should take.
Renew in me the gift of discernment,
so that I can always see the right direction in which I should go;
and give me the strength and courage to choose the right course,
even when the sea is rough and the waves are high,
knowing that through enduring hardship and danger
we shall find comfort and peace.
St Basil of Caesarea, c. 330 – 379, Monastic leader and Nicene theologian
Show me your ways, Lord,
teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.
