I often wondered if there’s a prayer suitable for setting off for a journey or adventure. As I am not English native speaker, I pray in my mother tongue, but people from all over the world travel for ages and it seems that our fears remain the same.
What you can find below is a compilation of a few prayers I found online. You can pray by saying one (or more) of them, or combine favorite parts of different prayers into your own, personal one, as I do. Everything is up to you 🙂

Why should We Pray for Traveling Grace?
We Need Gods Presence in Our Journey
Prayer for safe travel. Going on a journey either long or short is what everyone does on a daily basis. So a prayer for traveling grace is essential to let God know we appreciate His presence or want Him to go with us on our journey. It could be a trip to school, vacation, business or any trip we need to travel.
Although the majority of people who drive might be a good driver that obeys all traffic rules but still believes they need the divine protection from God and this they ask through prayers. Psalm 23:4 says “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me”.
Ephesians 5:15-16 says, “Look therefore carefully how ye walk, not as unwise, but as wise; redeeming the time because the days are evil”. The Bible makes us understand that all days are full of evil.
Life is challenging as well as the road we pass through every day, danger looms everywhere. No clear sight of what is ahead of us nor the kind of people we share a road with that might cause havoc, that is why we need to commit our ways to Gods hands through prayer for traveling grace and let Him take over the wheel to bring us to safety.
How our Prayer for safe Travel can Help?
Most times when we travel, we might suddenly feel anxious or fearful for a specific reason or even unknown reason. At this point, God will remind us He is with us because we have asked Him to come along.
One thing is sure, prayer changes things, and it works, therefore when we pray for traveling grace, there’s a feeling of peace, security, and comfort that overwhelmed us during this challenging time on our journey. God has promised us peace and safety as His children.
If you are traveling to do God’s work, on vacation, visiting relatives, or business trip, remember we are on earth to serve as traveling grace in going with God.

Biblical Prayers for Safe Travels
As I go on this journey, I claim a dwelling in the secret place of the Most High God, abiding under the shadow of the Almighty God, even to and fro.
The Lord shall be my unfailing refuge and fortress. I trust in Him for safety through out the journey.
I shall be divinely delivered from all snares of the evil ones and from every lurking pestilence along the way.
I am covered with God’s feathers and I trust under His saving wings. In obedience, I hold on to his truth as my timely shield and buckler.
Yes, I shall not be afraid for the terrors by night or day, and the evil arrows that fly by day or night! Neither will I be afraid of any pestilence that walks in darkness… Not even for the destruction that wastes at noonday.
Even if a thousand shall fall at my left side and thousands of thousands at my right hand, none shall come near me for I am secured by His Saving strength.
No matter what level of evil is recorded, I will only see them with my eyes and hear with my ears.
I dwell in safety because the Lord is my Refuge and the most High, my habitation.
There shall no evil befall me throughout this journey, neither shall any trouble come near wherever I will be.
Surely, the Lord shall give His Angels charge over me His child, and they shall keep me in all my ways on this trip.
The Angels shall bear me up in their hands that I don’t dash my feet against any stone.
Assuredly, I shall have dominion over every form of trouble that would ever surface, trampling them under my feet.
I will be delivered from all forms of accidents, calamity, tragedy, and misfortune because I have set my love and hope upon God. I will be set on high above forces and principalities because I have known the name of the Lord, my Redeemer.
Whenever I call upon the name of the Lord, He shall answer me speedily. Even if trouble would come, He will be with me. I will be delivered and be honoured in His name.
I claim the Long life the Lord shall satisfy me with. And I shall proclaim His salvation, now and forever.
