At a recent event, dinner was started with “A Trucker’s Prayer,” which I found to be inspirational and a positive acknowledgment of the hard work, responsibility and importance of truckers to each of us.

Dear God above bless the 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.
