The Engineer Prayer has its origin in a Regimental Prayer written for 2 Field Engineer Regiment in the early 1970s by a military chaplain, Major Hugh Macdonald. The prayer reflects the critical wartime role of the engineers and the relationship between sappers, mission and country. As this prayer is a sacred communication between individual and deity, it need not be repeated by rote, but may be modified depending upon the occasion.

The words to the Engineer Prayer are as follows:

Almighty God,
we pray Thee to bless
the Canadian Military
Engineers.

May our bridges always stand,
and our charges never fail.

Our members be ever loyal,
and our officers worthy of their loyalty.

May we work diligently in all our purposes,
and be skilled in our trades,
steadfast for Queen
and country everywhere.

Amen.
