Bikers Prayer
May the sun rise in front of me,
the rain fall behind me and the wind follow me.
May the Angels guard my travels
for they know what is ahead of me.
Keep me safe through rolling hills and swirling turns.
Let the eagle guide me to mountain tops.
Let the moons light guide through the night. Lord, thank you for letting me be a biker.
