The Christian fisherman's prayer is for those who are in the business of leading other people to Christ. A "fisherman" or a "fisher" is someone who captures fish in a net or with a fishing rod or even a spear to either eat, sell or retain as a trophy. Some fishermen gather shellfish from the sea, a lake or a river. It is estimated that there are about 38 million commercial and subsistence people fishing worldwide not counting fish farms. Fishing provides basic subsistence nourishment for millions every day. Fishing is however something that every Christian, whether male or female, needs to do. ""Come, follow me," Jesus said in Matthew 4.19, "and I will send you out to fish for people." That is our calling and task.✞
"God grant that I may live to fish, until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last cast, I then most humbly pray.
When in the Lord's safe landing net, I'm peacefully asleep.
That I be judged, good enough to keep."
