A Prayer of Summer People

A Prayer for 

Summer People 

Lord, we thank you:lifeguards at city pool, seashore and mountain lake;

camp counselor, crafts leader, summer league ump and ref;

pilots and drivers who take us lands away,

tour guide, park ranger, and baggage handler,

who lighten hearts and loads; officers on night patrol;

We rejoice in partners in porch-talk, 

neighbor voices muffled in the dark;

judges at State Fair, hawkers of ice cream and sno-cones on the Midway;

kids selling lemonade at the corner,

gardeners’ peddling bumper zucchini;

farmers, truckers, beekeepers at market,

and Jesus striding beside or ahead on warm days and rainy nights.
