As we travel to gather for the Labor Day holiday, whether by train, plane, auto or bus, I offer this prayer for traveling grace.
Father God, I thank You and bless Your holy name. Thank you for the cross of Calvary and our Savior, Jesus, who has redeemed us and forgiven us of all our sins.
Thank You for Your grace, unmerited favor...
Grace to receive the blood of Jesus that covers and protects
Grace that preserves us from evil, preserves our soul, and preserves our coming and going
Grace to receive the angels that bear us up and keep us in all our ways
Grace that blesses us in the city and in the field, blesses us when we come and when we go
Grace to receive the hedge of protection around us
And at the end of the day, Your grace is sufficient, our travels will be safe, and our passages clear. Since You keep us from all harm, there will be no accidents, no incidents, or injuries. Our sleep will be sweet and without fear, because You are our security and You keep us safe. You go before us, You are our rear guard. You are with us wherever we go and whatever we do. The light of Your love will shine through us before men, they will see our good works and they will glorify You.
Always in the Name of Jesus, Amen.
