Greetings Prayer Angels,
August is in full swing and it is a time of travel and transition in both small and large ways. Lives are in flux as many become wanders seeking adventure, change, stability, or even healing. Families are vacationing, collegians are returning to college, while others are taking physical and spiritual journeys, such as friends of mine walking the Camino de Santiago. Conversely, others travel to survive, as they seek safety as is the case with the Christians being persecuted in Iraq.
Joseph rose and took the child and his mother by night and departed for Egypt. Matthew 2:14
Today let us pray for these pilgrims that they may be blessed with safe passage no matter where their travels take them. May the hand of God protect them, guide their footsteps, and be their GPS (God Protection System) to prevent them from becoming physically, spiritually, or emotionally lost.
Lord, You protected and guided the Holy Family as they took flight and journeyed a long distance throughout the night. Like them, may we have a pure, childlike faith, knowing that You will also protect us along the way, sending angels as our guides. When we travel in darkness, may You illuminate our path, helping us know which road to take. May we always keep our eyes fixed on You, so that our love for You may not be diverted. May our hope be unwavering, as You first lead us to our earthly home, and then to everlasting life in You. With Your outpouring of grace may we increase in faith, hope, and love. Jesus we trust in You! Amen.
Peace, Joy, and Love,
May our prayers go viral and celestial! Pass it on!
