Prayers for Traveling Mercies
As we leave our homes and step out on this beautiful day, we request protection and traveling mercies, on our way to work, on our way to school, on our way to an interview, to visit a loved one or even as we go out on vacation. Send your angels to guard with watchful eyes over us wherever we go.
Heavenly Father, we place our trust in you. All our fears and anxieties, we lay at your feet. Give us peace of mind and assurance that all will be well.
Luke 21:18 But not a hair of your head will perish.
Deuteronomy 28:6 You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.
Zechariah 2:5 And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will be its glory within.’
Guide the hands of our drivers
Jehovah Rapha, guide our hands as we steer our vehicles on the roads. Guide the hands of the driver of the vehicles that are about to take us to our destination.
Whether it is by car, by bus, by train or even plane, Dear God, keep us safe from any accidents, danger or other harm. Give us a safe, smooth, untroubled journey.
Proverbs 3:23 Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble.
Psalm 91:4-5 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day.
Protect our family as they travel
Reach us safely to our destination. Bless and protect our families, the people who travel with us daily, our co-workers as well as employers. Remove every obstacle that may try to deter their journey.
Cover them all under the precious blood of the Lamb. Guide them, Oh Lord, My God. Be present as we go on our way. In Jesus’ mighty name, I declare we are covered, protected and saved! Amen and Amen!
Psalm 112:7 He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD
Psalm 34:7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.
Truck drivers prayer. Have you ever thought about a truck driver and what their life consists of? Do you ever wonder how hard it might be to work as a truck driver? For many, it means leaving their homes late in the evening to drive all through the night. It involves kissing their family goodbye knowing that they might not get a chance to see one another for at least a week or two. It means receiving a call in the “middle of the day” that your son or daughter has broken their leg on the playground at school. It means feeling like a part-time parent because you are several states away and can’t be there to nurture those you love most. It means being judged by family and friends because you are making a living to provide.
With all these difficulties in mind, do you think that it is vital for truck drivers to pray? Well, it is no doubt crucial that truck drivers should pray. Look at all the situations that they have to face! Surely they need to draw strength from the Lord.
The Bible says in Psalm 73:26: “My flesh and my heart fail, but God is the strength of my heart and portion forever”.
If you are a truck driver and not really sure how to pray, please consider using this model of a truck drivers prayer to go by.
A Truck Drivers Prayer
Tonight I travel out on the road once more. Each time I leave my heart stays home with my family. I ask that you protect my family while I am not there. You are our Great Provider. I also ask that you keep me safe through long working hours and driving long distances. Help me get adequate rest at night, so I will be refreshed to travel. Most importantly, keep me close to you at all times. Lord, I am just a person, but please hear this truck drivers prayer.
In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
Truck drivers should pray because they want to. It is how they communicate with God, and God wants to hear from them just like he does anyone else. Praying can keep truck drivers from many dangers that they face on the road.
The Bible says in Psalm 27:1: “The Lord is my light and my salvation; so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?”.
If you just prayed may God bless your leaving out and coming in! May He wrap angel wings around your truck as you leave out and pull in. Please understand that you are valued, and God always honors a truck drivers prayer. Keep praying those prayers! You may feel alone on the road, but you are never alone. God is with you. Thank you for your service. Without your deliveries, this world would not be able to operate!

September / October 2012 Prayer Letter
We would like to start off by thanking all of you for your prayers. We were traveling to a meeting in SC on a Sunday morning during a rain storm. Before we knew it, we were almost involved in a 3 car wreck. We were on the tail end and did not get any damage but we slid in between the wrecked vehicles and the concrete retainer wall. I believe it was the prayers of God’s people that keep us safe and we thank you!
We had a busy last two months. The Lord allowed us to be in a different church every service in Sept. and Oct. We traveled through 10 different states on our deputation trail. We gained several new supporters putting us at the 50% mark! The most exciting news is we were able to see 5 people accept the Lord as their Saviour! Praise the Lord, He is still saving folks and we are privilege to be a part of it.
This is Taylor and Amber from Georgia, they got saved!
We were honored to be a part of two great Mission Conferences. One was a Home Mission’s Meeting that meet the needs of state side Missionaries. Our transmission was shifting hard for the last month and a half and because of prayer and God’s people being generous, the need was met to get the transmission fixed. Where God guides, He provides!
You may have noticed a difference in our letters last time. The ministry of Calvary Baptist in Tunnel Hill Georgia, which is headed up by Brother Bill Goins, is now taking care of printing and mailing out our letters. They have been a true blessing and have been a true representation of being God’s servant. Thank you all again for your prayers and financial support. We do not take it lightly and we are honored to represent you and the Lord. Please continue to pray for safety on the road, more meetings and support, and wisdom.
Because of Christ,
The Kirkmans – Psalm 62:2
I clutched my rosary beads in my hand, glad for their comforting presence. Traveling made me nervous, and this time was no different. My husband, Art, and I were on our way to Boston, driving up from New Jersey in our trusty Honda to visit one of our daughters. Art looked over at me. “Let’s pray for safety on our journey,” he said. As he and I prayed the rosary, I felt as if God were watching over us. “Amen,” we said together.
Suddenly I dropped the rosary beads! They fell between the passenger seat and the center console. I inched my fingers down to try to pull them out, but it was no use. “There’s a rest stop up ahead,” Art said. “You can try to get them out then.”
Art pulled into the parking lot. I got out, opened the right side rear door and got down on my knees, feeling around for the beads. Aha! Part of the beads grazed my fingertips. I tried to pry them from their spot. Lord, please free my rosaries, I prayed. Art tried too. They wouldn’t budge.
We were about to get into the car when Art turned to me. “Do you smell something burning?”
“Hmm, sort of,” I said. We sniffed around the car but couldn’t figure out where the smell was coming from.
“It’s probably from another car,” Art said. “Let’s get going. We’ll try to free the beads later.”
Finally, about three hours later, we reached our exit. On our way into the city, Art spotted a Honda dealership. “Maybe they can free the rosaries,” he said, pulling in.
Art walked over to one of the mechanics. “Oh, rosary beads,” the young man said, smiling. “Reminds me of my mom. I’ll take a look.” The mechanic reached in and tugged on the beads. “This might take a while,” he said. “They’re wedged in there pretty good.” Then he popped his head up. “Do you smell fumes?”
The mechanic grabbed a flashlight and examined the car. Then asked if he could put it on a lift to get a better look. Art and I took a seat, prepared to wait. But 10 minutes later the mechanic came hurriedly back to us, shaking his head.
“Talk about divine intervention,” he said. “You’ve got a bad leak in the reservoir that holds your power steering fluid. There’s not a drop left. What’s worse is that the fluid has been dripping on the catalytic converter, which gives off tremendous heat. Pretty soon, your car could have caught on fire. You would have lost control of the wheel. If you hadn’t stopped in now…”
When I held the rosary beads again in my hand, I said a prayer of thanks to the One who watches over us, always.
