You Won't Find This in the Prayer Book

Composed by a friend (adapted from the "Forms of Prayer to be Used at Sea" in the Book of Common Prayer):
O eternal Lord God, who alone spreadest out the heavens, and rulest the raging of the sea; who hast compassed the waters with bounds until day and night come to an end: for such as pass on the seas upon their unlawful occasions, rebuke not the raging winds, and the roaring sea, but rather suffer the billows to swallow up their bark and all therein to perish in the mighty deep, that the inhabitants of our Continent may in peace and quietness serve thee our God; and that we may enjoy the blessings of the land, with the fruits of our labours; and with a thankful remembrance of thy mercies to praise and glorify thy holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
