The sun will not harm us by day, nor the moon by night as we travel. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

But I refuse to let anxiety rob me of this chance you have given to me to explore the world and its beauty. Instead of fear, fill me with peace. As I go to different places in the world, let me find serenity in your beautiful creations. Holy Spirit, please always remind me that Jesus is with me everywhere I go.

Lord, there are so many things I have planned for this journey, I have taken all the necessary precautions, but you are the only one that establishes our steps. Establish my steps from the time I leave this place to when I reach my final destination. Let your word be a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. Let this journey bring me closer to you.
