    I was wondering if there was a truckers prayer. If so I would like to read it
    if not we should have one, don't you think on here so maybe we trucker can print it out and keep it in our trucks

    A 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 judgment 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

    AMEN

    I don't know if there's a standardized prayer or not, but I've seen this one many times.

    Here's one i found also:

    "Trucker's Prayer"
    [SIZE=-1]Before I step into my truck, Let me open your door.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] Then bless me, Lord, and we'll be on our way.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] If I should meet with misfortune along the highway,[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] steer me through my times of trouble.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] Be the first driver and map our way.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] Guide me through the fog into the next day.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] Be that light that shines at the top of the hill; and help me get there[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] without any pills, but by way of God's will.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] Let my eyes foresee the dangers and I'll lend a helping hand.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] Touch me to lift my spirits I pray in Jesus' name.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] Direct me on the right roads and keep me between the lines until we get where we are going.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]Don't leave me behind!.[/SIZE]

    Hi, Have you read My Trucking Prayer? It is available as a seperate download or as part of the whole book Good Roads and Far Horizons by Dave Furlong. Just google the titles to get the words. If you enjoy, why not spread the word.

    If you look around at the major fuel stops I have seen some t-shirts with a trucker's prayer on them .
