Jesus Take the Wheel is a catchphrase often used in rage comics and image macros where Jesus is called upon to literally take control of a wheel of some sort.
The song “Jesus Take the Wheel”, performed by Carrie Underwood, was released on October 3rd, 2005.
The song tells the story of a mother who lives a hectic life. On a late-night Christmas Eve drive on a snow-covered road on her way to Cincinnati, Ohio, the woman begins sorting out her emotions and bemoans not having enough time to do the things that really matter. Then, her car hits a patch of black ice, causing the woman to lose control of her car. She panics, takes her hands off the steering wheel and cries out to Jesus; shortly thereafter, the car stops spinning and safely stops on the shoulder. After taking stock of the situation (and seeing that her baby has remained fast asleep in the rear seat), the woman decides to let “Jesus take the Wheel” of her life.
One of the earliest image macros was from August 2010, posted to the “Jesus is Love” Tumblr.  A similar theme was used in a rage comic posted to Reddit on April 30th, 2011.
Search queries for “jesus take the wheel” spiked after the release of the song in 2005.
