Heavenly Father, today we are thankful that the Panama-based Pantelena has safely docked in Togo after having been missing for a week. With hijacking suspected but not confirmed, we await answers, but we primarily rejoice that the ship and its complete crew of 19 have been found. We pray for this crew as it goes through the process of reconnecting with its agencies and managers, and then crew members’ families. We pray for truth to come out, for healing where necessary, and for any other action steps that need to be implemented. Lord, we pray against the upsurge of piracy off the coast of West Africa. Bless and guide the International Maritime Bureau as they seek to curtail this increase in violent crime on the high seas. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
