Day 46 – Saturday 15 August 2020 – Bus & Taxi Drivers

Good morning, I’m Rev Veronica of Binstead, Havenstreet and Wootton.

Our theme today is:  Bus and Taxi Drivers

Covers a lot of ground… nearly 500 miles!  Thinking about

  • School buses
  • public buses… Southern Vectis
  • private tour buses
  • taxi drivers…

We’re praying for them at this time of global pandemic and the many ways it affects their work, including: the need to ensure good practice of social distancing and hygiene rules, for them as they are at increased risk of exposure to the virus due to the many people they see everyday, their continuous need to ensure safe driving.

Heavenly Father,

We give you thanks for all of the bus and taxi drivers across the Isle of Wight.   We thank you for the service that they provide, for the care in which they provide that service and for their consideration of the needs of people in all sorts of different ways. 

Heavenly Father,

We ask that you bless these drivers as they go about their work. Bless them with encouragement and patience to drive safely in all circumstances.  Give them patience when they encounter difficult people, and wisdom to know how best to handle the situation, and the integrity and character to manage it well.  And, at the end of their work day, bring them home safely to rest peacefully knowing they have provided a valuable service to their community.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour

Amen.

Please join us this evening at 7pm for our daily Zoom prayer meeting:
