Travel Prayer and Blessings




God goes with you wherever you go. Invite him to be your travel partner and go under his protection in your adventure. He is always with you and just when you have no strength to pray, let yourself be inspired by our little prayers.



"Suppose I had wings
like the dawning day
and flew across the ocean.
Even then your powerful arm
would guide and protect me."
(Psalm 139:9-10, CEV)


 

Jewish Wayfarer’s Prayer
(Tefilat HaDerech)

 
„May it be Your will, o Lord, our God and the God of our ancestors, that You lead us toward peace, guide our footsteps toward peace, and make us reach our desired destination for life, gladness, and peace. May You rescue us from the hand of every foe, ambush along the way, and from all manner of punishments that assemble to come to earth. May You send blessing in our handiwork, and grant us grace, kindness, and mercy in Your eyes and in the eyes of all who see us. May You hear the sound of our humble request because You are God Who hears prayer requests.
Blessed are You, our Lord, Who hears prayer. Amen.”


 

 Irish blessings for those who travel


„May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.”

„May God grant you always…
A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you.”

„May the Saints protect you
And bless you today
And may troubles ignore you
Each step of the way.”

„God be on your road every way you go.”

 
 

I arise today


"Christ with me, Christ before me,
Christ behind me, Christ in me,
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,
Christ when I arise"

 

Our Father


Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever.
Amen.
