There are many “roads demons” out there looking for a prey to feed. Also, we have many road users engaging in dangerous activities that might cost human their precious lives; such as texting while driving, driving while intoxicated, over speeding and the likes, its only takes God’s mercy and grace to reach our various destination without been a victim. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you”. That also includes a prayer for traveling grace.

Why should We Pray for Traveling Grace?
We Need Gods Presence in Our Journey
Going on a journey either long or short is what everyone does on a daily basis. So a prayer for traveling grace is essential to let God know we appreciate His presence or want Him to go with us on our journey. It could be a trip to school, vacation, business or any trip we need to travel. Although the majority of people who drive might be a good driver that obeys all traffic rules but still believes they need the divine protection from God and this they ask through prayers. Psalm 23:4 says “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me”.
Ephesians 5:15-16 says, “Look therefore carefully how ye walk, not as unwise, but as wise; redeeming the time because the days are evil”. The Bible makes us understand that all days are full of evil. Life is challenging as well as the road we pass through every day, danger looms everywhere. No clear sight of what is ahead of us nor the kind of people we share a road with that might cause havoc, that is why we need to commit our ways to Gods hands through prayer for traveling grace and let Him take over the wheel to bring us to safety.
How our Prayers can Help?
Most times when we travel, we might suddenly feel anxious or fearful for a specific reason or even unknown reason. At this point, God will remind us He is with us because we have asked Him to come along. One thing is sure, prayer changes things, and it works, therefore when we pray for traveling grace, there’s a feeling of peace, security, and comfort that overwhelmed us during this challenging time on our journey. God has promised us peace and safety as His children.
If you are traveling to do God’s work, on vacation, visiting relatives, or business trip, remember we are on earth to serve as traveling grace in going with God.
