Prayers for traveling

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  🙂

Through our Lord, Jesus Christ, Thy Son,
Who livest and reigneth with Thee
in the unity of the Holy Ghost, world without end.

Heavenly Father, today I lift my hands to the heavens in adoration to You for who You are. You alone are God, Lord God Almighty, King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

I call out to You because You deserve all the honor, glory and praise. I pray travelling mercies while on this trip I am about to take.

Psalm 23:4 Though I walk through the valley of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Father, due to the envy and strife I have faced because of this journey, I pray that You take care of every obstacle that may try to deter me.

You already know the destination Lord and the challenges I face. So I pray that Your Army of Angels will go before me and make every crooked path straight, for You are in control and know the way of the righteous.

I will be kept covered by the Blood

Heavenly Father, I will trust You, and I have faith to believe that I will be kept covered by the blood of Your precious Son, Jesus Christ.

I can make this trip because of Your everlasting love. You are my refuge and my fortress and I declare that I will be kept safe.

Psalm 4:8 In peace I will both lie down and sleep for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

Committing this journey into His hands

No accident or incident can befall me because You are the lamp unto my feet and the light unto my path.

You have given me a sound mind and wisdom to listen to Your still small voice within me. In the name of Jesus, I commit this journey into Your hands, SO BE IT… Amen and Amen!

May the Lord bless you with travelling mercies today, both you and your family.

A woman of God, a worshipper striving for excellence in ALL areas of my life!

I am a daughter, sister, wife and mother who has come to the realization that life without God is boring and empty. Through my prayers I hope to shine the light of truth and encourage others so that we can all glorify God in everything we do. I continue to relay messages that God has equipped me to write for His purpose. I hope my prayers will help you feel inspired and trust our limitless God more deeply.
