" Dear Heavenly Father -  

 We pause, mindful of the many blessings You have bestowed on us. We ask that You be with us, and pray that You guide us in this arena , just as You guide us in the arena of life. We don't ask for any special favors, Lord; we don't ask to draw an easy stage, or to never miss a target. Nor do we ask never to break the time barrier, or to stand in the winner circle every time. Help us, Lord, to live our lives as honest as the horses we ride, and in such a manner' that when we make that last inevitable ride to the country up there, where the grass grows lush, green and stirrup high, and the water runs cool, clear and deep, that You, as our final Judge, will tell us 'Come on in, cowboy or cowgirl. Your entry fees are paid."
