The Councils Challenge

We're all set for the big challenge tomorrow... Here goes!!!


  1. Grant me, O Lord, a steady hand and watchful eye.
    That no one shall be hurt as I pass by.

    You gave life, I pray no act of mine
    may take away or mar that gift of thine.

    Shelter those, dear Lord, who bear my company,
    from the evils of fire and all calamity.

    Teach me, to use my car for others need;
    Nor miss through love of undue speed
    The beauty of the world; that thus I may
    with joy and courtesy go on my way.

    St. Christopher, holy patron of travelers, protect me
    and lead me safely to my destiny.


  2. If you MUST speed on the roads tomorrow --sing these hymns loudly:

    At 45 m.p.h.—“God Will Take Care of Me”

    At 55 m.p.h.—“Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah”

    At 65 m.p.h.—“Nearer, My God, to Thee”

    At 75 m.p.h.—“Nearer, Still Nearer!”

    At 85 m.p.h.—“This World Is Not My Home”

    At 95 m.p.h.—“Lord, I’m Coming Home”

    Over 100 m.p.h.—“Precious Memories”

  3. Almighty God, our heavenly Father, we humbly beseech Thee to look down upon us and guide us safely on the highways today. Instill in us Thy spirit of love and consideration for our fellow men, so that our actions may follow Thy light and with Thy help we may lessen the loss of life by accident. We seek Thy infinite understanding and mercy.
