Prayer When Traveling

Sovereign Lord,

As we embark on our journey, we come to You in prayer. We ask for Your protection and guidance to be upon us as we travel. Keep us from harm and direct our steps according to Your will. Grant us wisdom to make sound decisions and discernment to avoid danger.

We also come to You in faith, asking for Your provision during our trip. Meet our physical needs for food and shelter, and supply us with the resources necessary to accomplish this travel You have set before us.

May Your presence go before us, behind us, and beside us, and may Your love and grace surround us. We trust in Your sovereignty and Your faithfulness.

We pray all of this in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
