Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves,
when our dreams have come true because we have dreamed too little,
when we arrive safely because we have sailed too close 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. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes;
and to push in the future in strength, courage, hope and love.
-Sir Francis Drake
