A Traveler’s Prayer

Wherever we go, whatever we do, it is important to pray for God’s hands of protection upon us. I found this beautiful prayer prayed by the Jews before they travel. Prayer is an act of complete dependence upon our God who is in control of everything.

“May it be Your will, Lord, My God and God of my ancestors, to lead me, to
direct my steps, and to support me in peace. Lead me in life, tranquil and
serene, until I arrive at where I am going. Deliver me from every enemy, ambush
and hurt that I might encounter on the way and from all afflictions that visit
and trouble the world. Bless the work of my hands. Let me receive divine grace
and those loving acts of kindness and mercy in Your eyes and in the eyes of all
those I encounter. Listen to the voice of my appeal, for you are a God who
responds to prayerful supplication. Praised are you, Lord, who responds to
prayer.”
