V. Our assistance is within the title of the Lord.
R. Who has made heaven and earth.
V. The Lord be with you.
R. And together with your spirit.
Allow us to pray.
Lend a keen ear, Lord God, to our prayers, and bless this automobile with Your holy proper hand. Direct Your holy angels to accompany it, that they might free those that experience in it from all risks, and all the time guard them. And simply as by Your deacon Philip You gave religion and beauty to the person of Ethiopia as he sat in his chariot studying the Sacred Phrase, so, level out to Your servants the best way of salvation. Grant that, aided by Your grace, and with their hearts set on good works, they might, in any case the thrill and sorrows of this journey by way of life, benefit to obtain everlasting joys, by way of Christ our Lord.
(And it’s sprinkled with holy water.)
