FUEL our efforts with vigor, stamina, and with a hearty spirit:
As we look forward to to the start of a new week, I revisit an invocation recently I delivered to a Saturday night audience (as my husband Mike and I subbed for the awesome RFC Chaplain Jay Rowe) at the Muncie Dragway.
Invocation delivered 09-18-09:
Let us take a moment to thank God for all we have been given today, and for bringing such a fine group of dedicated and enthusiastic drivers, families, friends and fans together here in one place.
We ask for God’s help and watch over the drivers, their ride, the track, its owner(s), and the audience, all coming to, racing at, and departing from- the track today.
We ask for your goodness, guidance and patience to keep our wits about us, and to maintain focus with determination, and with a sense of humor… borne of the knowledge that we are mortal men (and women). Above all dear Lord we asked that you FUEL our efforts with vigor, stamina, and a hearty spirit.
For all of this, and for a few doses of GOOD LUCK and GRACE, we give our thanks~ AMEN.
Here’s wishing you all at the HUB GARAGE a safe and blessed week beyond compare.
