Vespers is a sunset evening prayer service in the Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Eastern Catholic, Anglican, and Lutheran liturgies of the canonical hours. The word comes from the Greek ἑσπέρα and the Latin vesper, meaning “evening”. It is also referred to in the Anglican tradition as evening prayer or evensong.
Evening prayer; vespers.
Late Middle English: from Latin vesper ‘evening (star)’.
Our newest survey vessel the SEAS VESPER is an answered prayer for the safety of our personnel performing nearshore hydrographic surveys along Florida’s treacherous east coast. The SEAS VESPER is a 2018 Parker 2520 XL Sport Cabin with twin Yamaha 150hp engines, a Length Overall (LOA) of 33’1 and a beam of 9’6. http://www.parkerboats.net/2520-xl-sc/
At SEAS we pray for our survey crews when they leave our office for a project and we thank God when they return home safely. While they are gone, we wait to hear from them in the evenings that they are safely off the water. So, our Vespers are answered. SEAS VESPER is a testimony to that God hears our evening prayers and brings our crews safely home to their families because the Lord Jesus Christ is at the right hand of the Father making intercession for the Saints!
