Prayer Diary

Join Us by Saying a Prayer for Seafarers

Prayer is an important part of our Mission Life as we aim to support the work of seafarers and the issues faced by their families globally.

At our home church of St Michael Paternoster Royal in London, England, we pray for seafarers as they undertake dangerous work; risking their lives every day to support our global economy and general prosperity. Their work is lonely and often done in ungodly conditions, with months spent away from their families and loved ones.

We also bless the work that The Mission to Seafarers is carrying out at 200 ports in 50 different countries globally, to provide support to these essential workers.


Download Our Seafarers Prayer Diary

Every December, we issue a global Seafarers Prayer Diary, so that our Mission family can all prayer together around the world.

If you would like to see the latest copy, you can download our Prayer Diary 2020 here.

Join us as we bless the work of this invaluable group of 1.5 million seafarers – men and women – who work all year round to keep our economy afloat.


Annual Carol Service

In addition to our annual Seafarers Prayer Diary, we also work with our global community to arrange a Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols every December in London. Other carol services take place around the world at this time.

Our community aims to take some time out during the festive season to think about those who are not able to enjoy the warm embrace of their families but are instead dealing with difficult conditions often miles away from their loved ones.

If you are interested in more information about our Carol Services, or if you are interested in holding one in your own church then please click here.
