Prayers for safe travel

Please pray for my husband and son as they drive from Houston to Phoenix today and tomorrow. It’s a 16 hour journey across mostly deserted territory (West Texas, New Mexico, Arizona) and of course I worry!

Also if you can pray for a successful decision on an apartment in Phoenix for my son, and a good start to his internship there for 2 mos.

Thank you so much.


REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

Prayers for all intentions said.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.


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.


Thank you for all of your prayers!

St. Christopher, please protect my loved ones as they travel a long distance mostly away from civilization!

Praying hard for your intention.

Traveled that stretch many times…it is very sparse…glad to hear they are making together.

For your husband and son…

O Almighty and merciful God, who hast commissioned Thy angels to guide and protect us, command them to be our assiduous companions from our setting out until our return; to clothe us with their invisible protection; to keep from us all danger of collision, of fire, of explosion, of fall and bruises, and finally, having preserved us from all evil, and especially from sin, to guide us to our heavenly home. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

May you also be filled with the Peace of the Holy Spirit.

Pax Christi

That’s a lovely prayer, thanks! They are just about to Ft. Stockton, will be in El Paso by late suppertime. Doing great so far! I love technology, I can track them via an app on my husband’s phone!

Dear Joseph, you took your family to Egypt and kept them safe. Please help my husband and son to stay safe as they travel in the desert of west Texas!

I am praying.

Dear God, watch over this father and son on their adventure. Give them right judgment in all things, and protect them from all harm. Amen.

Thank you to everyone who prayed! They reached Phoenix safely and found my son a place to live while he is there on an internship. I thank you for joining me in prayer for them!
