A prayer to trust God
Lord, thank you for the opportunity to travel at this time of year. You have supported me and my loved ones and I am grateful. You say in Psalm 121:8 that you should keep my going out and coming in from this time forward and forever. Save my life and bring me safely to my destination and back home. I may not see the dangers along the way, but please keep me away from them. Watch my steps, Lord. My life is in your hands and I trust that you will protect me.
In the mighty name of Jesus, amen and amen.
