Why Have A Bikers Blessing

Scroll down to content

For seven years now our church has been having a Biker Blessing each spring. This event is for anyone in the community who rides a motorcycle of a bicycle. The road can be a dangerous place and it seems to be getting more and more dangerous each and every day.

With summer ahead there are more motorcycles on the road and there are also more bikes. So we invite those from the community who ride, to come on out to this event and get the Lord’s blessing for a safe riding season.

This year the event was well attended. We also had a police officer come and talk to the kids about bike safety. We had light refreshments, gospel music, and it was a great time of socializing.

There is nothing better than praying to God and asking for Him to keep us safe no matter where we are or no matter what we might be doing.

Give ear to my words, O Lord, Consider my meditation. Psalm 5:1

Prayer: May you hear our prayers oh Lord and keep us all safe as we come and go on a daily basis, in Jesus precious name.

  1. Amen! What an awesome idea this is! The ministry tool this becomes is beautiful. So many people will be blessed by the outreach your church is involved with. What a heartwarming story. Thank you so much for sharing! May our Lord continue to bless each of you mightily! <3

    1. I don’t have a clue how others do it, as I only heard about it when we came to this church. They had a few members who rode bikes and they would invite their friends and the Pastor would pray over them, giving them God’s blessings for safety on the road. I’m not sure how other do it though.

    1. It was…our local Adventist church advertised in the community, and some came just from seeing the advertisement. This year those with bicycles also came for a blessing. I’m not sure about where you live, but riding a bike can be a pretty dangerous thing here.

      1. Where do you live? I live in Northern Alabama. It’s interesting that a day or so after reading your post, one of my relatives–a musician and biker–who lives in New Orleans posted on FB about Biker Prayer Day at a church in NOLA. Not only did the bikers gather for prayer but they conducted a whole church service. It was very energetic! And there were a LOT of bikers there!

      2. Wow…how awesome! Ours was on a smaller scale but still very nice. I’m in Canada in the GTA Greater Toronto Area.

      3. I thought you might have been. I think I saw a statue on your page I reconize…. One that might be at the front of a campus??

      4. ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„ Ok, so youโ€™re probably familiar with my 2 (K)nights in shining armour. The world truly us a small place.
