Good Morning Lord,
Today I pray that you protect me and my fellow workers, as we enter into the coal mines. Here
your black diamonds sparkle as we pitch our pitchforks into the sides of these
mines bringing down the coal that will heat our homes and factories.
Keep the lanterns burning brightly as we walk amidst the puddles of water and under the water that
is falling at times
from the top of the mines.
As we load the wagons to wheel out the coal help us with steady footing so we do not fall.
Help us to be on the look out for the smell of gas that so often creeps up on us.
Protect us Lord from all hazards that mining creates and help our families in case of accident or
Agonizing Christ help your coal miners and keep them safe from all harm both in and outside of the
Shenandoah, Masontown PA
IN MEMORY OF ANDREW LUCAS SR., GEORGE LUCAS, AND STANLEY GLINSKI, EDWARD
GLINSKI, AND TO ALL THE MINERS WHO HAVE DIED IN THE MINES
FOR ALL THE MINERS WHO GO EVERYDAY INTO THE DARK RECESSES OF THE
EARTH SO WE MAY HAVE HEAT.
