The Naval Prayer

Eternal God, creator of the heavens and ruler of the raging seas, take under your powerful protection and bless all members of the Royal Australian Navy.

Preserve them from the dangers of the sea and strengthen them so that they may faithfully serve our country.

With the help of others who love freedom may they be able to ensure security for all those who lawfully travel the seven seas, and by their effort maintain for all people the possibility of serving you in peace and justice all through their lives.

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.Amen

The Soldier’s Prayer

Almighty God, whose command is over all, and whose love never fails, let me be aware of your presence, and obedient to your will.

Help me to accept my share of responsibility with a strong heart and cheerful mind.

Make me considerate of those with whom I live and work, and faithful to the duties my country has entrusted to me.

Let my uniform remind me daily of the traditions of the Service in which I serve. When I am inclined to doubt, strengthen my faith. When I am tempted to sin, help me to resist. When I fail, give me the courage to try again.

Guide me with the light of your truth and keep before me the life and example of Jesus in whose name I pray. Amen.

A Prayer for the Royal Australian Air Force

O Lord our God, who has given us dominion over earth, air and sea.

We ask you to be present with us who are called to serve our country in the Royal Australian Air Force.

Give us courage, a steady nerve and ready mind.

Sustain us in days of preparation, in the daily routine of servicing and weary waiting.

Be with us in time of sudden peril and grant that under your mighty protection we may be preserved in body, soul and mind.

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
