Heavenly Father, we pause, mindful for the many blessings

You have bestowed upon us.  We ask that you be with us at this rodeo

And we pray that you will guide us in the arena of life.  We don’t ask

For special favors; We don’t ask not to draw a chute fighting horse or

Never to break a barrier.  Nor do we ask for all daylight runs or not

To draw a steer that won’t lay.  Help us, Lord, to live our lives in such

A manner that when we make that last inevitable ride to the country

Up there, where the grass grows lush, green and stirrup high,

And the water runs cool, clear and deep, that you as our last judge,

Will tell us, “welcome home cowboy your entry fees are paid.”
