A Prayer For Perseverance: Captain James T. Kirk
Let us pray.
Dear Captain Kirk,
Please be with us as we explore strange new worlds to seek out new life and new civilizations.
Help us to endure the hardships of this galaxy. Let us not stumble before the Dominion or the Borg. Give us the strength to command our lives the way you so aptly commanded the Starship Enterprise.
And please, Captain, grant us the ability to forgive our enemies; the way you chose to forgive the Klingons and usher in a new era of peace for the United Federation of Planets.
We ask that our public schools begin to acknowledge your wisdom and start teaching our children of your heroism and discoveries. We pray that you will guide our leaders and help them to know when to fire phasers on those who would choose not to believe in your authority and your grace.
Captain, we thank you for all you've done to defend our galaxy and preserve our way of life. In your shadow, we roam the Alpha Quadrant in the everlasting search for meaning and for Mr. Spock.
In the name of intergalactic peace and interstellar law we pray to you,
Captain Kirk, Star Trek, Prayer, Perseverance, United Federation of Planets
