Do you ever stop to thank the Lord for the truckers you see when you travel the interstate? Do you think to pray for them? I love to do that when we travel, and my prayer goes something like this...
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
As we travel, I see every kind of truck outside our window
... flatbeds, tankers, dump trucks, vans, covered wagons, wide loads, cattle trucks, drybulk, dropdecks, and reefers; old and new ones, large and small ones; every color imaginable, and from every state and province in North America. The other day as we traveled I-78, I tried to imagine what they were hauling. Before long I was reminded of the phrase,
"If you use it, a truck brought it."
