Traveler’s Prayer Passport

Gracious, Heavenly Father,

Praise to You for your abiding love!

We pray Your sheltering walls of salvation

around us as we embark on our trip.

We thank you for directing

our lives and allowing us to live in

a free country where we can worship you in

Spirit and in Truth.

As we depart our home country, we ask that You be

strongly with us in every way, on every day.  We place ourselves in

your protective custody and call on You to be our

Mighty Fortress as we prepare to follow You in

the steps You have planned.

Keep Your ministering angels before us and around

us as the paths of travel are established and confirmed.

Give us Your obvious presence everywhere we go

and with all the people we meet.  Let the love of Christ

be poured out from our lives as we reach out and touch

others in Your name and for Your sake.

Let us be Your ambassadors of peace and joy in the

Holy Spirit so that those we encounter will sense the

fragrance of You.  When our time away

concludes, we ask you to accompany each of us safely back

to our home country to continue Your Great Commission

there, to make disciples of Jesus Christ.

It is in His precious Name we offer this Passport of Prayer!

AMEN

 

About this Traveler’s Prayer Passport 

A good friend who was responsible for coordinating a trip abroad with several people became anxious and lost her confidence to follow through. The prayer was to boost her confidence and encourage her to trust God for help. She eventually followed through and everyone returned safely with many wonderful memories.

The Scripture support is from Psalm 91:11 For He shall give His Angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways.  His Angels will take care of you!
