Prayer of a Truck Driver’s Wife
Please bless my husband while he’s out on the road. Please protect him from the wind and rain and cold. Help him to keep that big rig between the white lines so he can make it to his destination on time. May he find his back-haul quickly and make it home soon. Please light his night on the road with your stars and moon. Let him rest peacefully in his sleeper’s bed, and please let there be a good meal and fresh coffee at the truck stop ahead. Help me to keep the home fires burning while he’s outh there movin’ on. And give me the strength and wisdom to take care of things while he’s gone. May the road he travels be clear and dry, and may not temptation catch his eye. Help him rmember when he’s all alone that his loving wife and best friend is waiting for him here at home.
