Cowboy's Prayer
 
OUR HEAVENLY FATHER,
WE PAUSE, EVER MINDFUL
OF THE MANY BLESSINGS
YOU HAVE BESTOWED UPON US.
WE ASK THAT YOU BE WITH US AT THIS RODEO,
AND WE PRAY THAT YOU WILL GUIDE US
IN THE ARENA OF LIFE.
WE DON'T ASK FOR SPECIAL FAVORS,
WE DON'T ASK TO DRAW AROUND A
CHUTE FIGHTING HORSE, OR TO
NEVER BREAK A BARRIER.
NOR DO WE ASK FOR ALL DAYLIGHT RUNS,
OR NOT TO DRAW A STEER THAT WON'T LAY.
 
HELP US O LORD,
TO LIVE OUR LIVES
IN SUCH A MANNER, THAT
WHEN WE MAKE THAT LAST INEVITABLE RIDE
TO THE COUNTRY UP THERE,
WHERE THE GRASS GROWS LUSH AND GREEN
AND STIRRUP HIGH, AND THE WATER RUNS CLEAR
COOL, AND DEEP,
THAT YOU, AS OUR LAST JUDGE,
WILL TELL US THAT OUR ENTRY FEES ARE PAID.
Amen
