Lord, thank you for the opportunity to be able to travel in this season. You have sustained me and my loved ones, and I am grateful.

I may not see the dangers along the way, but I ask that you keep me away from them. Watch over my steps Lord. My life is in your hands, and I trust that you will keep me safe.
In the mighty name of Jesus, amen and amen.
