Aviator’s Prayer

Eternal God,
Who makes the winds and clouds obey,
You protect the eagle in it’s flight,
And the dove seeking safety.

Uphold me as I soar above land and sea,
Pilot my ship safely through the sky.

Be with me at takeoff and landing,
And let me not lose my way.

Above all,
Keep me in your grace,
And let my last landing bring me
Safely into your hangar,
Redeemed to fly with you,
