creative prayer journeys

prayer for safety and protection

We pray because is changes things, prayer is an action, like a muscle it engages with the now and creates new pathways and spaces. As we travel by car or plane or across the seas it is natural to feel some apprehension about our travel.
Celtic Cross
If you become fearful or anxious,  let God remind you that you are held closely in his loving arms. Now in this place, ask for safety for yourself and for the others that journey with you.

Peace is a promise from God. We can call upon God anytime that we are fearful and ask for the peace "which surpasses all understanding" (Phil 4:7). Sometimes one prayer can be enough to hold our hearts, minds and emotions safe. Sometimes we may pray continually to God as we travel through the unknown. However, one thing is certain - prayer works, and transforms our lives and the lives of those we connect with.

Prayer for safety when travelling

Heavenly Father,

You hold us in the palm of your hand.
You watch over us wherever we go.
You are our shepherd, and protector.
You are behind us and before us.
You journey with us.
Today we put our trust in you as we travel.


Prayer for safety for a loved one
(a prayer for a family member such as a husband or wife)

O Lord,

I ask that you would walk beside my loved one today. Come place your loving hand upon their shoulder. Protect them from head to toe with your almighty power. Watch over their hearts and minds and speak into their lives with your words of hope and truth.

Prayer for safety and protection

(the prayer poem in the film above)

May the three enfold you
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Hold you safe and hold you strong

May the three encompass you
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Encircle your life each day and night

May the three protect you
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Guard your door and keep each gate

May the three watch over you
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Still your heart and calm all fear

Keep me safe
Safe with you.

And me sheltering beneath
Your mighty wings.

And fill me with peace.

Dwell at Christmas

Dwell album cover from Prayerscapes

In this season of giving, it is hard sometimes to cut through the commercial trappings, rise above the “perfect Christmas” expectations and truly connect with loved ones to give a gift that is really yearned for.
