The prayer below is attributed to Sir Francis Drake (1540-1596). Seen as a hero by Queen Elizabeth 1st and the English for his struggles against the Spanish Armada, he was viewed less favorably by the Spanish! In any case, the prayer is wonderful.
Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves; when our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little; when we arrive safely because we sailed too closed to the shore.
Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly – to venture on wider seas where storms will show your mastery; where losing sight of land, we shall find the stars.
It takes considerable guts for us to truly ask God to “disturb us.”
