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.
But not a hair of your head will perish. Luke 21:18
You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. Deuteronomy 28:6
And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will be its glory within.’ – Zechariah 2:5
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, so that we will be kept safe from any accidents or danger.
Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble. – Proverbs 3:23
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. – Psalm 91:4-5

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. 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!
He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD – Psalm 112:7
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. – Psalm 34:7

I’m a young Christian, from South Trinidad, seeking the wisdom of the Word and God’s blessings on my life. A journey, that’s just begun, but living to the Glory of God.
- Prayer for my son in jail please help me to pray for his release thanks

In the name of God Sammy go on with his journey.
May God the Father be with Sammy,
God the Son protect Sammy, and
God the Holy Ghost be at Sammy’s side.
Whoever is stronger than these three persons
May approach his body and his life; yet
Whoso is not stronger than these three
Would much better let me be!
We pray that the Lotd send the Holy Spirit to guide, the Holy Angels, Michael the Archangel, Raphael, Sealtiel, Baraquiel, to guard Sammy, his plane and its pilot in all his travels and may the Lord be the pilot in said flights and for Mama Mary to cover Sammy with her mantle of maternal protection.
Return to 7 Daily Prayers to Get You Through The Week
Worry often hides in the background during the holiday season. She raises her head as if to remind us that everything can’t be entirely joy-filled. Especially in regards to travelling. She bursts into our thoughts with “what-if’s.” “What if they can’t get here on time?” “What if the weather delays flights?” “What if there is an accident on the highway?” Whether train, bus, plane, or car, the mode of transportation isn’t so much the issue as safety. Our hearts long to embrace friends and family in secure environments with happy hearts.
When worry latches on, the best method I’ve found to shake off her hold is converting those nagging phrases to words of prayer, praise and thanksgiving. For we know that when things seem out of control, God is always in control. He is our Defender, Advocate, and Protector. Below are a few examples of how we can exchange thoughts of worry to thoughts of fortitude.
1. Rather than thinking about our fears of the worst happening, we can reflect on the good that has happened. When we know the Lord, we have no reason to be afraid. The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? Psalm 118:6 ESV
2. Rather than allowing worry to consume our minds, we can lift thoughts of praise to God for His promises of protection and provision. The Lord has promised to give us the protection of His angels. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. Psalm 91:11 ESV
3. Rather than dwelling on potential emergencies, we can think on positive encouragement. When we reflect on God’s work in our lives, we are inspired to look at future possibilities. On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate. Psalm 145:5 ESV
Why worry when we can pray? May this prayer for safe travels encourage your heart to discard worry over safety and cover your friends and loved ones in prayer.
A Prayer for Safe Travels
When worry and fear lurk in my heart, teach me to praise you for your promises. Thank you for being the One in control; I know there is nothing to fear. Thank you for sending your angels to guard us here; I believe you love and protect like no other. Thank you for your secure hand and defending presence in the past; I praise you for continuing to hold the future. May I continue to reflect on your glory, My Defender.
