For the sake of one good man all on board the vessel were preserved. May the Lord give to us, also, all who are with us. Paul was accompanied by Luke and other believers, there were also with him the courteous centurion, several prisoners, a crew of rough sailors, and a band of fierce soldiers, and God gave him all that sailed with him. We pray that all our family, our fellow church members, our servants, our neighbours, our work people, and even our enemies, may be saved. Are not our hearts large enough to pray for all? May the Lord give us faith to intercede for them, and what a joy it will be if all shall come safely through the tempests of this life to the shores of heaven! Grant it, O Lord! Amen and amen.
All that sail with us save, O Lord,
Yea, give us every soul on board;
Parents and children, servants, friends,
To all our fervent prayer extends.
Save from the tempests of this life,
From raging sin and Satan’s strife,
Preserve us all by grace divine,
And all the glory shall be thine.
