Prayers for Safe Travels

Safe Journey Prayer for a Friend

Lord, watch over my friend as they travel. Protect them as they come and go. Give them a restful time away and bring them home safely. Send angels around them as a barrier against other vehicles around them. Keep the roads clear, traffic light, and weather pleasant. In Jesus name I pray, amen.

Prayer for Safe Travel for a Loved One

Dear God, please grant my loved one a safe trip. Your mercy has always been with us as we’ve traveled, and now I ask the same for my loved one. Guide them safely to their destination. Help them fulfill their purpose of this trip and bring them home without harm. Thank you for your tender care and hand of protection. You are so good to us. In Jesus name, amen.

Traveling Mercies Prayer

Precious Lord, give me traveling mercies as I journey. Keep me safe, watch over my family, and bring us back together again without harm. Be with me as I come in and as I go out. Be merciful to me while I’m away. I thank you for it. In Jesus name, amen.

Prayer for Safe Travel for my Husband

Lord, thank you for keeping my husband safe while he’s away. Give him favor with the people he’s traveling to see. Keep his thought life pure and deliver him from temptations that may arise while on the road. Help his body and mind to stay healthy so he can accomplish what he’s set out to do while he’s there. Bring him back safely to us and keep him out of harm’s way. Let his time on the road be peaceful, but keep him alert. Protect the other drivers around him, too. I pray this in Jesus name, amen.

Prayer for Safe Driving

God, as we prepare for this road trip, we pray for safe driving for ourselves and also those around us. Grant us steady hands on the wheel and watchful eyes on the road. I pray for your protection in front of us, behind us, and alongside us. Take the wheel, Lord, and bring us home safely again. In Jesus name, amen.

Safe Journey Prayer

Lord, be our guide and our protector on this journey.  Watch over us and protect us from any accidents. Keep us free from harm and also from doing any harm. Give us grace when we’re tired. Help us be patient and kind if any trouble comes. Guide us safely until we reach our destination, and then again as we return. In Jesus name we pray, amen.

Prayer for Safe Flight

Father, I pray over the trip I’m taking on this plane. I’m trusting you that no mechanical issues or emergencies will happen during this flight. May our pilot be alert and make wise decisions. I pray for each flight attendant here today, that they will be kind, patient, and prepared. Help my fellow passengers be in good spirits and have good health. Deliver us to our destination safely. In Jesus name, amen.

Remember to Thank God for Safe Travel

Remember to thank him for safe travel after you’ve returned home from your trip. Even if it’s as brief as “Thank you, Lord” be sure to genuinely acknowledge his protection. He’s so good to us!

Keep a Prayer for Safe Travel Bible Verse With You

You might find it comforting to keep a bible verse or two with you when you travel. It can help keep you from feeling anxious and encourage you to put your trust in the Lord. Write them down on a small notepad or commit them to memory. You can also bring an uplifting book with you to read. One of my favorites is Ordering Your Private World by Gordon MacDonald.

2 Samuel 22:3

My God is my rock. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. He is my refuge, my savior, the one who saves me from violence.

2 Samuel 22:20

He led me to a place of safety, he rescued me because he delights in me.

Job 11:8

Having hope will give you courage. You will be protected and rest in safety.

Psalm 121:7-8

The Lord will keep you from all harm — He will watch over your life; The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
