Before embarking on that journey, stop and pray these prayers for safe travels. Ask for travelling mercies from God, so you can be sure of your safety
29 Powerful Prayers For Safe Travels This Year

Travelling is an exciting experience. Everyone deserves to enjoy their travelling adventure to the fullest. But most of those who travel frequently are also aware of the potential dangers involved. Today, we bring you a prayer for safe travels. 

Traveling on executive class flights is cool, but 100% safety is not guaranteed. Traveling in the latest luxurious car is great, but total safety is not a guarantee. 

A true Christian knows that ensuring that all safety measures are in place—in whichever vehicle they are traveling—is not enough to 100% ensure their safe travels. That is why we all need traveling mercies from God. We need to involve God in every trip we embark on. 

I presume that almost everyone in this world knows that life is spiritual. The spiritual influences the physical (and natural)—and the physical can be controlled by the spiritual

This isn't me trying to deny the fact that some accidents that occur while travelling are caused by mechanical faults that were left unchecked, or suddenly developed in the particular vehicle involved. But a spiritual person knows that, not all cases of accidents that happen daily on earth can be traced to a physical cause. 

The Bible says that the enemy came to steal, to kill and to destroy (John 10:10). It also tells us that the enemy prawls around like a roaring lion, seeking whom to devour (1 Peter 5:9). The enemy carries out his three-pronged assignment of stealing, killing and destroying in so many ways. One major way he destroys and cuts off life prematurely is through transport accidents. 

That being said, a Christian shouldn’t live a care-free life, thinking that nothing will happen—because their car is in its best condition, or because they are using the most expensive flight. Neither should we be adamant to the fact that the enemy works tirelessly day and night, to fulfil his mission. We should always be aware of the desperation of the enemy to cause mayhem. 

The yuletide season for instance, is often that season where the enemy fights hard to ensure that many people don't cross over into the new year

The kingdom of darkness knows that people travel a lot within the last months of each year, so they seize the opportunity to intensify their attacks on every means of transportation, taking many lives in the process. 

Philippians 4:6 NLT
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.

I believe that these things I've said here don't sound strange to most Christians. I presume that Christians already know these things, but reminding you of them may get you anxious. The Bible says, do not be anxious but pray

It is one thing to not be anxious, and it is another thing to be prayerful. Not being anxious but also not praying cannot prevent the undesired from happening. 

So while you don't fear what the enemy is capable of doing to you—because you have a more capable God—also ensure that you stay prayed up and protected. 

People pray before they board a plane or get in their car for a journey, not because they are afraid of what the enemy is plotting, but because they want to ensure that all safety measures are in place—both physically and spiritually. 

No one wants to lose their life or that of a loved one to a car accident or plane crash. That is why we have written for you these prayers, that you can also look up and pray before you embark on your travels.

Final Thoughts On Prayer For Safe Travels


It is important that we always spend quality time to pray effectively before going on a journey. Trusting in the mechanical safety measures put in place to curb accidents is like trusting in the arm of flesh.

Proverbs 3:23 ESV
Then you will walk on your way securely, and your foot will not stumble.

Our safety is in the Lord; the Lord promised that we would experience safety in our journies. We must always ensure that we invite Him into every journey we go on. By so doing, we can be rest assured that He will keep us safe and give us “soft-landing”, even when the enemy tries to tamper with our trip.

God bless you.
