As the country eases down on its lockdown restrictions, many Filipinos are slowly going back to their old routines, like traveling to work on a daily or weekly basis.
The entry of long-term Philippine visa holders will also soon be allowed, as airlines gradually resume domestic and foreign flights in the country.
With this, fears and anxiety about traveling amid a global pandemic have increased. It comes as most of those who are traveling—flight attendants, employees living in the province, and essential workers, among others—have no choice but to go out in order to fulfill their personal or professional responsibilities.
In these times of uncertainty, let God protect you and keep you safe in your journey. Reach out to him with these powerful prayers!
A Prayer for Calm When Going on A Journey
Jesus, wherever I go, I give you praise I lift you high above each space. No matter where or how I ride You will be here with me. Whatever the time, your presence is here. You hear my prayers, you’re always near. If ever I feel alone I know You will be here with me. Whenever I call, upon your name I journey with you, I travel safe. For every moment you hold my hand You will be here with me.
Safe Journey Prayer
I come before you Father God and confess my fears about traveling. I confess my insecurities about connections and times, My concerns for my safety and security, And my anxieties around this journey. I come to lay these things down and choose to put my trust in you. My faith will rise up and lead me through. My hopes will find light as I praise your name. My love will remain strong and firm holding me steady. My peace will be your peace, one that surpasses all these worries. You are with me. I am safe with you. Thank you. Amen.
A Traveller’s Prayer
O Father, You are always there, for your love reaches everywhere. Above the clouds, beneath the sea, I know your hand will cover me. Through the darkened starry night, again at dawn when all is bright. Upon the heavens, or over bridges, deepest valleys, rocky ridges. You beside me, o so close, knowing when I need you most.
Through different lands of war or peace, where suffering stirs or riches twist, I choose to walk the path you tread, and carry your wisdom where I’m led. I’ll bring your peace with every step, and bless each place I rest my head. You keep me safe, watch over me, I choose to put my trust in thee.
Prayer for Safe Flight
Dear God, please watch over me as I fly out today. May your hand be on the pilot and crew, your strength be in the engineers that prepare the plane and your wisdom over the control teams on the ground.
I choose to trust in you and give you my fears and anxieties. May I find peace as I travel. Take my heart on a journey of trust and hope as I look out over the beautiful world you have made. I travel with you. Calm me and cover me, Amen.
A Prayer for a Loved One As They Travel
Dear Lord, I pray for my friend, that they would feel you at their side today as they travel. Please watch over them. Keep them safe, fill their hearts with peace and bless their trip away with your love. Amen.
