A Prayer for Safe Travel

(a prayer for protection and calm when going on a journey)

Jesus, wherever I go, I give you praise
I lift you high above each space.
No matter where or how I ride
You will be here with me.

Whatever the time, your presence is here
You hear my prayers, you’re always near.
If ever I feel alone I know
You will be here with me.

Whenever I call, upon your name
I journey with you, I travel safe.
For every moment you hold my hand
You will be here with me.

Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.

Psalm 139:7-8, (NIV)

Safe Journey Prayer

Father God, I come before you and confess my fears about travelling.
I give you the concerns I have about my safety and security,
and my anxieties in making this journey.
I come to you and lay all these worries down at your feet.

Lord, I choose to put my trust in you.
I proclaim that my faith will be restored in the light of your hope, for you have always kept me safe.
I declare that my love will be renewed in your love for me, for you will hold me firm and steady.
I confess that my mind will be filled with your peace, one that surpasses all my troubles.
Thank you that you are with me now. Here, resting in your presence, I am completely secure.
I am yours Lord. Amen.

A beautiful song meditation, based on Psalm 91, gently reminding us that we can dwell in the shadow and protection of Almighty God:-

Anglican Prayer for Safety
For Travelers
O God, our heavenly Father, whose glory fills the whole
creation, and whose presence we find wherever we go: Preserve
those who travel [in particular __________]; surround
them with your loving care; protect them from every danger;
and bring them in safety to their journey's end; through
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
