Trucks Outside My Window
Thank you for this driver
Give him (or her) the special blessing he needs today...
if he is running late for his next stop;
if he is weary and tired;
if he has a tough decision to make;
if his dispatcher is unreasonable;
if his heart is troubled;
if he is facing a painful situation;
in the dangerous times;
Remind him to call his wife if she is lonely.
Give him a good load if their finances are tight.
Lead him to a chapel if his need is spiritual.
Lord, somehow give him a hug
to let him know you love him.
Lord, please help me
To be safe as I travel each mile.
Let your presence guide me and bring
Me a smile. Take care of my family while
I am away. Let them know I miss them
Each and every day. Steer me clear of
Danger as I drive these miles alone.
I put my hands in yours, Lord.
Keep me safe.
Get me home.
The Truckers Prayer
Dear God above bless this truck I drive
And help me keep someone alive
Be my mortal sight this day
On streets where little children play
Bless my helper fast asleep
When the night is long and deep
And keep my cargo safe and sound
Through the hours big and round
Make my judgement sound as steel
And be my hands upon the wheel
Bless the traveler going past
And teach him not to go so fast
Give me the strength for every trip
So I may care for what they ship
And make me mindful every mile
That life is just a little while
