The people will be here crowding around the summits as they wait for the arrival of the riders who will master their bodies and their minds. We cheer them on as they dig deep to demand more out of each stroke. Lord, thank you for the joy these stages bring to our lives.
Lord, we thank you for the people on these mountains. We thank you for their excitement and their joy as they cheer on their favorites. Thank you for those strong enough to ride in the tour this year. We pray that each person will have the opportunity to learn about Jesus and how he endured all for each one of us. He chose to obey the Father and climb to the top of Calvary and sacrifice everything for each of us. We thank you, Jesus, for your love and your sacrifice for our salvation. We stand here today and cheer for your return, so that all will know you as King of King and Lord of Lord. We pray in the name of Jesus our King. Amen
