Oh God Thy Sea Is So Great

I was just watching “Thirteen Days”; the film starring Kevin Costner about the Cuban Missile Crisis, when, right at the end, Bruce Greenwood, playing President Kennedy, was presented with a plague and on it was written; “Oh God, thy sea is so great and my boat is so small”, and I thought wow what a great saying. Kind of like one of those inspirational things you hear every now and again which makes you stop and think. I had to goggle it and apparently it is from a small prayer known as the Breton Fisherman’s Prayer.
