Truck Driver's Prayer

Location: Effingham, Illinois on HWY 70 , on 03/30/05 @ 12:10:21 PM

Truck Driver's 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.

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 strength for every trip, so I may care for what they ship.

Make me mindful every mile, that life
is just a little while.


This cross is almost 200 ft tall and sits just off of highway 70 that runs between Indiana and St. Louis

my dads a truck driver. he's always gone. and its nice to know that there are people out there that say prayers like this one to keep the truck drivers safe. my dad, he's a lucky man. he just opened up nd realised one day that this is what he wanted to do with his life. he's been doing this for 15 years. and he's not had a single accident in all his 15 years. nd he said " im a little trucker, and truckin' is what i do best. its what i want to do with my life, and thats how i'll be. driven down the highway, carrying what someone will eat or need tomorrow makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up."

" If you bought it, A trucker brought it "

My boyfriend is a coal truck driver in West Virginia along with a couple of my brother-in-laws, the job i have come to find isnt always what you see it to be as you pass a semi on the road. I have come to realize that they dont get to sleep or rest much and they do this just about six days a week long hours everyday. I do pray for the safety of the drivers out there not just my family but to all drivers!!!!

A long-time pal, of mine IS a truck driver, here in UK, (and, on mainland Europe, too), who is, currently, unable to work, through the RIGOURS, of the job. I think the absolute WORLD of him, an I E-mailed him the Truck Driver's Prayer, as a reminder, that, he is ALWAYS in my THOUGHTS
