The ocean is so big and my ship is so small...

O God,
whose eternal providence
has embarked our souls in our bodies,
not to expect any port of anchorage
on the sea of this world,
but to steer directly through it
to Your glorious kingdom - -
Preserve us from the dangers that on all sides assault us
and keep our affections still fitly disposed
to receive Your holy inspirations,
that being carried strongly forward
by Your Holy Spirit
we may happily arrive at last
in the haven of our eternal salvation.
Through our Lord, Jesus Christ,

John Wesley
