One of the most difficult aspects of being a sailor is dealing with the emotional stress that can come with long voyages. When you’re out on the open sea, there’s always the possibility of danger lurking, and bad weather can quickly turn into something much worse. That’s why it’s so important to have a support system while you’re out there, and one of the best ways to do that is through prayer.
Prayer is an important part of any sailor’s life
The Navy stresses the importance of prayer in its creed, “to serve our country and our fellowman.” Prayer is an important part of any sailor’s life, and it can be just as important during times of distress or when a sailor is feeling lost.
When sailing, sailors often rely on prayers from friends and family to help them through difficult times. Prayers can also be directed towards God, who provides sailors with guidance and protection in their journey.
Sailors have long used hymns as prayers, and Naval Academy chaplain Lt. Cmdr. Britt Beeson encourages his midshipmen to continue singing religious songs while underway. “I think that the religious component of sailing makes it more special,” Beeson said. “It creates a sense of community and camaraderie among sailors that transcends anything else you might find in civilian life.”
When praying, it is important to remember that God is always listening. Whether you are seeking guidance during a difficult situation or simply needing comfort in times of stress, prayer can be a helpful tool for sailors of all faiths and backgrounds.

There are many benefits to praying for sailors, both during and after their journey. Prayers can help keep the sailor safe and protect them from harm. They can also provide solace in times of difficulty, and help strengthen relationships with family and friends back home.
