" The Deer Hunter's Prayer " - by Dale Sunderlin
Heavenly father, to you I pray,
A majestic deer may come my way.
Let my aim be straight and true,
this my Lord, I pray to you.
A swift clean kill is what I ask,
Take his spirit swift and fast.
For his last breath should not be,
One of pain or agony.
Let his soul,
Come to Thee,
To roam your heavens,
Wild and free.
I found this prayer and our local bow club used it during dinner prayer for our annual banquet.
