Cycling Church Prayer
Creator of all life,
we give thanks for this opportunity to ride our bikes.
We give thanks for the technology thatís frees us rather than enslaves us,
for derailers and gear shifters, tyres and brakes,
the creativity of the human mind that enables us to participate in this experience.
We give thanks for the weather,
the sun that softens our confusion,
the rain that drenches us with peace,
the wind that dances with our mysteries,
the clouds that sculpt your enveloping love.
We give thanks for this time to sweat, to vent the frustrations of the last week.
We give thanks for the freedom of the journey,
the simplicity of the road,
the quietness of the hills.
May we experience the beauty of your world,
your healing in our souls,
and your challenge to live life in all its fullness.
