For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.

Psalm 91:11

Lord of all,

As summer draws near and many people make travel plans, we thank You for the gift of relaxation and rest, for the opportunity to see new places, and for the chance to visit family and friends who live far away. With the increased number of travelers, we pray that You send Your guardian angels to keep us safe. Protect us in all forms of travel, whether by land, by air, or by sea. You protected and guided the children of Israel through forty years of desert wanderings, and their clothes and sandals did not wear out (Deuteronomy 29:5). Bless those who travel with such provision, Lord, that any problems they encounter along the way may be dealt with easily and with no personal harm. Bring all who travel safely to their destinations and bring them joyfully home afterward, refreshed from their time away and ready to settle back into their schedules and routines with a positive attitude and perspective. We thank You for preserving our lives thus far, Lord, for we know that every day, every hour is a gift from You. Continue to grant Your protection until You usher us safely home to heaven with You.

I pray for those I know who will be traveling…
Please protect the following people…

In Your name I pray. Amen.
