Blessing of the Fleet
God of boundless love, at the beginning of creation your Spirit hovered over the deep. You called forth every creature, and the seas teemed with life. Through your Son, Jesus Christ, you have given us the rich harvest of salvation. Bless these boats, their equipment and all who will use them. Protect them from the dangers of wind and rain and all the perils of the deep. May Christ, who calmed the storm and filled the nets of the disciples, bring us all to the harbor of light and peace. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen
