A Cowboys Prayer.....

A Cowboys Prayer

Our Gracious and Heavenly Father,


We pause in the midst of this festive occasion, mindful and thoughtful of the guidance that you have given us.

We would ask today, Lord, that you be with us in this rodeo arena as we pray you will be also with us in life's arena.

As cowboys, Lord, we don't ask for any special favors in this arena today.

 We only ask that you will let us compete in this event, and in life, as You did for us.

We don't ask that we never break a barrier,

 draw the steer that won't lay,

draw around a chute fighting horse,

or a bull that is impossible to ride.

Help us to compete in life as honest as the horse we ride;

in a manner as clean and pure as the wind that blows across this country;

so when we make that Last Ride, that we know is inevitable, to the Country Up There..

Where the grass is green and lush and stirrup-high and the water runs clean and clear;

You will tell us, as our Last Judge, that our entry fee's are paid.

Farming Fabulously

Program Note: Now this is not the exact version that we used in Wisconsin but, it is close enough.
