Lord I love the great outdoors,
enjoying this great world of Yours,
A fisherman with countless dreams
I cast my line, then cast my cares,
and know You’ll answer all my prayers.
I’ll catch a fish and when I do,
I always offer thanks to You.
A Prayer For Fishermen
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
