Prayers for Strangers

Yesterday I didn’t drive well;

I made a bad mistake.

Thank you God for the stranger

Whose foot slammed on his brake.

 All day today I prayed for him,

As I prayed for many more

Who were quick-thinking at the wheel

And saved my life before.

 There’s no other gift to give

To a stranger you don’t meet

Than to offer prayers for him

And lay them at God’s feet.

 So every time I think about

Some driver who was skilled

And managed to undo a threat

That could have been fulfilled,

 I say another prayer

For those strangers I don’t know

Who were wide awake and ready

When I was dim and slow.

Name Withheld
