The motorcycle rider stereotype is not always looked at in a positive light. As with all stereotypes, it represents a very small section of a group and more commonly is not true.
I have greatly enjoyed researching how motorcycle riders share their faith. There are groups of individuals who use their motorcycles to help stranded drivers. As they are helping these individuals motorcycle riders will bring up the Gospels and share God’s amazing grace.
There are other groups of riders out there who will attend motorcycle events and share their beliefs. Many individuals ride to feel God’s presence, using the opportunity to clear their minds of the distractions that surround them.
God’s use of his people never ceases to amaze me. Mark 16:15 reads “And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation”. I know I do not follow the great commission as much as I should. However, I do believe that our prayers for those who are ministering will only strengthen their work.
If you are a motorcycle rider looking for prayers for your mission, I commend you for your service to God. I hope these prayers help you on your journey. Please know you are on my family’s prayer list. If you are looking to pray for a motorcycle rider, whether you know them or not, I hope these prayers help you on your way.
