A Bikers Prayer


Monsignor Clifford Stokes, Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Cape Town and Parish Priest of Our Lady of Good Hope Sea Point, compiled a very special prayer for the Amigos Portugueses.

This prayer is appropriate to the Amigos Portugueses as the founding members are keen and avid Harley Davidson motorcyclists. The bikers will use this prayer on their travels and functions they organise at the Portuguese Club.

Lord God,

there is so much for which we must be thankful – most especially for the world you created, for our families, our friends, our homes.

But, as we set out on the road with our motor cycles and our fellow bikers, we thank you too for this very special fellowship and the thrill of the open road as we journey together. May we ride our motor cycles wisely, always respecting the rights of others on the road.

Lord, send your angels to protect us, to guide us and be beside us that we may travel safely. And as we make our way through life, help us always to be sensitive to the needs of others.

And when we come to ourjourney’s end, it is you we’ll thank – protector, FRIEND.
