7 Effective prayer for truck drivers
Spread the love
Have you ever considered what a truck driver day-to-day existence is like? Do you ever think about how difficult working as a truck driver would be?
For many, this means leaving their homes late at night and driving all night. It entails kissing their loved ones goodbye, knowing that they won’t see each other for at least a week or two.
It involves receiving a call in the “middle of the day” informing you that your child has broken their leg on the school playground.

It means you’re only a part-time parent because you’re thousands of miles away and can’t be present to care for those you love. It entails being criticized by family and friends because you work to support yourself.

Do you believe truck drivers must pray with all of these challenges in mind? It is undeniably important for truck drivers to pray. Take a look at all of the challenges they’re up against! They must, without a doubt, seek strength from the Lord.

The Bible says in Psalm 73:26: “My flesh and my heart fail, but God is the strength of my heart and portion forever”.

If you’re a truck driver and don’t know how to pray, try utilizing this truck driver’s prayer model as a guide.

  • Dear Lord, Tonight I travel out on the road once more. Each time I leave, my heart stays home with my family. I ask that you protect my family while I am not there. You are our Great Provider. I also ask that you keep me safe through long working hours and driving long distances. Please help me get adequate rest at night, so I will be refreshed to travel. Most importantly, keep me close to you at all times. Lord, I am just a person, but please hear this truck driver’s prayer. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
  • Dear Lord, Thank you for this man… and the critical job he is doing to help during this crisis. Keep him safe and healthy. Bless him and his wife. We pray that our country’s situation will soon pass with Your divine help. In Jesus name, Amen.
  • Dear Lord, You know the road before me. This is a long journey I am about to take. I pray for a safe journey these 700 miles, Lord. I pray that if any problems come my way, Your hand would be with me and guide me through them. I pray for the other drivers on the road with me. Father, I pray for good rest for us all and that cell phones will be put away, so no distractions take our eyes off of the road. Lord, You are mighty, and I love You! Amen
  • Father, I thank you so much for Your everlasting love for me! Guide my friend, John, as he takes us to the convention this weekend. The journey isn’t too long, but traffic will be a mess, and finding parking may be a problem. Father, guide his mind, hands and feet to deliver us safely to our destination. I place this journey in Your hands. I love You! Amen
  • All-powerful and mighty God, we ask for Your blessing and protection upon all truck and delivery drivers as they make their routes. In bad weather, keep them safe from accidents; on long, dark nights keep them awake and alert; help them be aware of their surroundings and how other people are driving so they can react appropriately. If You’re feeling very charitable, Lord then blesses them with roads free of construction. We pray that the driveways and sidewalks be clear, pets safely secure, and needed signatures signed for those who must deliver packages. For those on long-haul trips, help them eat as healthy as possible, find clean trucker stops, and make good time. May all drivers come safely home to see their loved ones. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
  • Lord, bless this driver that I love
    Watch and guide him from up above

    Up all night to deliver a load
    Keep him safe on that old road

    Be his eyes, ears, and hands
    Reflexes quick for things unplanned

    In a world where troubles abound
    Bring him home safe and sound

    He’s my other half, you see
    The one you made just for me

    So, Father, hear this prayer that I pray
    Please protect him while he’s away.

    Amen

  • For this, cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God. Now unto him, that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Prayer Of A Trucker’s Wife

Lord, bless this driver that I love
Watch and guide him from up above

Up all night to deliver a load
Keep him safe on that old road

Be his eyes, ears, and hands
Reflexes quick for things unplanned

In a world where troubles abound
Bring him home safe and sound

He’s my other half, you see
The one you made just for me

So, Father, hear this prayer that I pray
Please protect him while he’s away.

Amen

Truck drivers should pray for the simple reason that they wish to. It’s how they speak with God, and God, like everyone else, wants to hear from them. Truck drivers can avoid many of the dangers they experience on the road by praying.

May God bless your going out and coming in if you just prayed! As you leave and pull in, may He drape angel wings around your truck. Please know that you are important to God, and that God always answers a truck driver’s prayer. Continue to pray those prayers! On the road, you may feel alone, yet you are never alone. God is on your side. Thank you for your time and effort. This world would not be able to function without your deliveries!
