God, to our prayers
and bless this vehicle with Thy right
hand. Send Thy holy angels
to accompany it that they may keep from all evils those who ride in it; and as once Thou didst grant faith
through Thy deacon Philip to the Ethiopian riding in his chariot and reading the word of God, so now show the way of salvation
to Thy servants that, always given to good
works, they attain to everlasting joys after the vicissitudes of the journey and of this life. Through Christ
our Lord. Amen.
