Our Morning Offering – 18 September – Wednesday of the Twenty Fourth week in Ordinary Time, Year C
Steer the Ship of My Life, Lord
By St Basil the Great (329-379)
Father & Doctor of the Church
Steer the ship of my life, Lord,
to Your quiet harbour,
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 see the right direction
in which I should go.
And give me the strength
and the courage
to choose the right course,
even when the sea is rough
and the waves are high,
knowing that through enduring
hardship and danger in Your name
we shall find comfort and peace.
