Traveling Saints

Traveling Saints

With summer rolling around, road trips, flights, and day trips are becoming commonplace. With all of the traffic and busyness of travel, we often forget to say a prayer for the road. Below are some road prayers to say when you travel, as well as prayers for the intercession of Our Lady, St. Christopher, and our guardian angels. Remember to bring the word of Christ with you wherever you go, so that you can be an example to the rest of the world in every situation. Have a blessed summer!


In the name of God I go on this journey. May God the Father be with me, God the Son protect me, and God the Holy Ghost be by my side. Amen.


Lord, be our guide and our protector

on the journey we are about to take.

Watch over us.

Protect us from accidents.

Keep us free from harm to body and soul.

Lord, support us with Your grace when we are tired.

Help us be patient in any trouble which may come our way.

Keep us always mindful of Your presence and love.



My holy angel guardian, ask the Lord to bless the journey which I undertake, that it may profit the health of my soul and body; that I may reach its end; and that, returning safe and sound, I may find all at home in good health. Do thou guard, guide, and preserve us. Amen.


Dear Saint Christopher,

protect me today

in all my travels

along the road’s way.

Give your warning sign

if danger is near

so that I may stop

while the path is clear.

Be at my window

and direct me through

when the vision blurs

From out of the blue.

Carry me safely

to my destined place,

like you carried Christ

in your close embrace.


O Lady of the Highway, 

be with us on our journey, 

for all your ways are beautiful 

and all your paths are peace.  

O God, who with unspeakable 

providence does rule and govern 

the world, grant unto us, your servants, 

through the intercessions 

of our watchful mother, 

to be protected from all danger 

and brought safely to the 

end of our journey.  Amen
