Prayers for travelers

The Flight into Egypt 02

Traditional wording:

Lord God our Father, Thou didst keep Abraham and Sarah in safety throughout the days of their pilgrimage, Thou didst conduct the children of Israel through the midst of the sea, and by a star Thou didst lead the Wise Men to the infant Jesus. Protect and guide us now in this time as we set out to travel, make our ways safe and our homecomings joyful, and bring us at last to our heavenly home, where Thou dwellest in glory with Thy Son and the Holy Ghost, One God, now and unto the ages of ages. Amen

Lord Jesus,  Son of God, Thou didst travel with the two disciples after the Resurrection and set their hearts on fire with Thy grace. Travel Thou also with​ ​us and gladden​ ​our hearts with Thy presence.​ ​We know, Lord,​ ​that​ ​we​ ​are​ ​pilgrim​s​ ​on this earth, seeking the citizenship which is in heaven. During​ ​our journey surround​ ​us with Thy holy angels and keep​ ​us safe from seen and unseen dangers. Grant that​ ​we may carry out​ ​our plans and fulfill​ ​our​​ vocations according to Thy will. Help​ ​us to see the beauty of creation and to comprehend the wonder of Thy truth in all things. Be​ ​our Companion, guide, and protector during​ ​our journey. Keep​ ​Thou us from all danger, misfortune and temptation. By Thy divine power grant​ ​us a peaceful and​ ​successful journey and safe arrival. For Thou art the​ ​way, the truth and the life, and to Thee​ ​we give thanks, praise and glory forever. In Thou​ ​we​ ​place​ ​our​​ hope and trust and Thou​ ​we​​ praise, honor and glorify, together with the Father and Holy Ghost, One God, now and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

O Holy Ghost, Comforter and Guide, we entreat Thee to hear our request that Thou direct the steps of Thy servants along the path of well-being that comes from Thee, and that in the midst of this fickle world they may live under Thy constant protection. Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

O Almighty and most merciful God, hear our prayers and kindly accompany Thy servants; and as Thou art everywhere present, lend us Thine aid at all times, so that with Thee as our shield we might be defended from all dangers and pay Thee our homage of gratitude. Commission, we pray, Thy holy angels to guide and protect us, and command them to be our assiduous companions from our setting out until our return; to clothe us with their invisible protection; to keep from us all danger of collision, of fire, of explosion, of fall and bruises, and finally, having preserved us from all evil, and especially from sin, to guide us to our heavenly home. Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and the +Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
