Étape 16 Pau > Bagnères-de-Luchon

 Water and mountains the Pyrenees bring a beautiful stage for us today.  The personality of the Pyrenees is different than the Alps.  The riders approach these mountain on the third week when their bodies are stretched to their limits.  Tired and wiry they drag their bodies over these mountains to Paris.  Each rider must have a reason, a goal, a dream or maybe just a hope.  If you are like me the Tour seems to be won by Bradley, but with these last stages ahead there is no sure thing, only hopes and dreams. 

Father, in your word you speak of being the living water and you called men of old up to the mountains to spend time with you, to seek you and speak with you.  Lord, today we still need to spend time on the mountain seeking your face.  Lord, we ask that on this day and in this place men and women will seek you.  We humbly bow before you seeking your love and grace to be pour out over these Pyrenees Mountains so that men and women will seek and find you.  You paid such a high price for our salvation, please do not give up now.  Send your Holy Spirit to each village on this route and let each house see that you are a God who loves them and has provided salvation as a free gift.  We pray all these things in the name of Jesus.  Amen.
