 Road Safety Prayer

Loving Father,
Thank you for your most precious gift of life.
Send your blessing on all who use the roads today,
whether driving, riding or walking,
that they may be kept safe from harm.
Give all road users a sense of responsibility toward others;
that they may at all time’s show care,
courtesy and consideration for others.
Bless, also, those who are called upon to deal with the aftermath of accidents,
including the police, fire brigade and paramedics,
that they may have the strength to cope.
Be with the relatives and friends of all victims of road accidents;
comfort and strengthen them to face the future.
Guide me, that I may do nothing to cause harm to anyone else or myself.
Keep me, and all those I love, safe in all our journeying.
We ask these things through your Son, our Saviour,
Jesus Christ. Amen.
