Blessing of an Automobile, a Wagon or Tractor

By Catholic Rural Life on April 24, 2023


The following prayer is from the CRL Rural Life Prayer Book, originally published in 1956.

Let us pray

Lend a willing ear, Lord God to our prayers, and bless this vehicle with Your holy right hand. Direct Your holy angels to accompany it, that they may free those who ride in it from all dangers, and always guard them. And just as by Your deacon Philip You gave faith and grace to the man of Ethiopia as he sat in his chariot reading the Sacred Word, so, point out to Your servants the way of salvation. Grant that aided by your grace and with their hearts set on good works, they may, after all the joys and sorrows of this journey through life, merit to receive eternal joys, through Christ our Lord. Amen
