For quite some time now me and my boys have been heading out to the river this season to fish only to come home with nothing. This morning was different and we’d decided to actually say a prayer before going out. All the times we went fishing and we never prayed, can you believe it?
Unfortunately the two boys were not enthusiastic enough and they lamented they catch nothing. They decided to stay home on this occasion. I headed out on my own and on the very third cast I caught a little brown trout. I took some photos to tease them. Upon seeing the photos I’d never seen them get dressed so quickly and they wanted to go this time.
If you’re heading out to fish this season, below are the prayers we prayed and that you may consider using.
Fisherman’s Prayer #1
God give me strength to catch a fish,
So big that even I,
When telling of it afterwards,
Have no need to lie.
Fisherman’s Prayer #2
I pray that I may live to fish…
Until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last cast,
I then most humbly pray:
When in the Lord’s great landing net
And peacefully asleep
That in His mercy I be judged
“Big enough to keep”!
