A Helicopter Pilot’s Prayer
The rotors fail against the air
Lifting me slowly into the sky;
I’m leaving those that need me
So please let nothing go awry.
Dusting the cobwebs from treetops
Flying the contour of the land,
Lurking unseen behind a hill
Skimming over the desert sand.
Going wherever I’m needed
Always knowing You’ll be there too.
It matters not what the mission
Together we’ll see it through.
When each mission has been completed
I’ll set gently down on the land
Safely returned to those I love
By the guidance of
Your loving hand.
