Prayer for travelers over the holiday

Please hear our prayers for all those traveling during this busy holiday weekend in the United States.  We send up all our prayers to You for safety for all those traveling, especially those with families.  We ask St. Christopher to pray for us, and bring our petitions to You, oh God Almighty Father. You are Amazing and Powerful, and we know You hear our prayers.  We pray for those that have accidents, that You keep them healthy and safe.  Lord, we also pray for those that are injured this coming weekend, that You may guide them to health.  Please, oh Consoler, be with those who will be in need of such consolation this weekend, that Your Spirit ease their hearts, and fill them with Your Love.   May they know Your Mercy and Love.

Oh God, our beloved and perfect Creator, I offer up to you any and all graces that I receive from attending Mass this week, for those travelers in need of Your Mercy and Love, whether by their own neglect, or their deaths or injuries during travel.  Surround them with others who will share Your Love and Mercy.  Thank you, O Great One, for the freedom that we have to travel where we need or want to go this weekend.  We thank you for keeping us safe, for You are Love beyond all things.  We praise You, God, our only need. We love You; we want to glorify You in all things, great and small.

Amen, Alleluia, Amen!

Prayer to Saint Christopher, Patron Saint of Travelers, for
St. Christopher's Protection

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.
