Having a fear of flying is normal, but in the current state of the world, fears that surround flying can encompass more than just flying itself. Here are 11 strong prayers for flying.
Prayer for Peace Instead of Fear
Compassionate God, I step on this plane knowing that You are my source of all things. Fill me with Your peace now and calm my fears of flying. Help me to relax on this flight, and to meditate on Your amazing care for those who reverence You. I look to You and Your strength. I seek Your face always and rest in You. May Your mighty hand of protection cover me on this flight. Amen.
Prayer Against Sickness
God of deliverance, I seek Your protection from viruses or other illnesses that the crew or my fellow passengers might have. As I wait for the boarding announcement, I pray that the cleaners will effectively disinfect the surfaces. I pray for adequate social distancing between the passengers and limited interaction with the flight crew. In the mighty name of Jesus, I come against all sickness and claim excellent health for myself and everyone on the plane. Amen.
Prayer for Protection from Illness
Gracious Lord, I am fearful of catching an infection while at the airport with so many other people. I know You have not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. Help me to focus my mind on You and not worry about getting sick. Protect me from any illness that other people around me might have. I give thanks to You for Your constant care and I praise Your holy name. Amen.
Prayer for Other Passengers Who Might be Sick
Faithful One, as I head to the airport, I pray for my fellow passengers. If any of them are starting to feel unwell, I pray they will not board the plane. Help them do the right thing and protect others from getting sick as well. Even though it might be inconvenient for them to change their travel plans, help them consider others first. And if they are sick, help them to recover quickly. Amen.
Prayer for Alternative to Flying
God of grace, I ask You to give wisdom to my employer and clients regarding the prudence of flying at this time. Help them to consider using the well-established alternative of video conferencing for these meetings. For the safety of myself and others who will be attending this meeting, I pray that those making the decisions will opt for the wisest venue. Remind them that video conferencing will also be cost-effective, more convenient, and will save time for all involved. Amen.
Prayer for Peace of Mind
God of peace, I am nervous about having to take this flight. Please ease my anxiety. Give me the peace of mind I need, so I can feel comfortable while traveling. Help me not to worry about all the things that can happen. I thank You that Your faithful love endures forever. I know You will keep me safe and secure through this time of travel. Thank You for relieving my distress. Amen.
Prayer for Composure
God of all comfort, I feel apprehensive about being on this plane. I hear someone coughing a lot and worry that they might be sick. Oh Lord, I hope that person is just suffering from seasonal allergies. But if not, please protect me and the others on this flight from sickness. Give me the self-control to stay calm. Give me peaceful composure, so I’m not agitating anyone but instead helping them to feel at ease. Amen.
Prayer to Trust in God
O Lord, You are the lifter of my head, and today I seek Your guidance and Your comfort. I must take this flight, but I really do not want to. Help me to not obsess about this situation but focus on seeking You. Help me build up my faith and confidence in Your divine protection. Help me trust You to work all things together for my good. I thank You for watching over me. Amen.
Prayer to Stay Healthy on Plane
God of grace, I am concerned because my business requires me to travel by air. I ask that You place a hedge of protection around me in the airport and on the plane. Please do not allow any viruses or other disease-causing pathogens to infect me. I thank You that You created me with an immune system to fight disease, and pray that it will work well, and I will remain in perfect health. Amen.
Prayer for Courage
Steadfast God, You know I’m fearful about being made to fly. And yet I praise You, for in Your power, I eagerly expect that I will have sufficient courage. I pray that as I take adequate measures to stay safe, at the same time, I will be confident that You are with me. I thank You for shielding and protecting and sustaining me. I pray that I will not only be fearless but will enjoy the flight. Amen.
Prayer for My Fellow Passengers
Lord of help, I pray for my fellow passengers today. Many of us are nervous about flying and about getting sick from another passenger. Help us to all be careful and use appropriate measures to prevent the transmission of disease. Help us to also be calm and peaceful and keep anxiety away. Help us all to do our best in this situation. I put my trust in You and ask that You cover us with peace. Amen.
