20 Bible Verses To Pray Before Traveling
Today we will be dealing with 20 Bible verses to pray before traveling. There is no small trip. The journey from the bedroom to the bathroom is big enough for the enemy to strike. We don’t need to travel a thousand kilometers before we fear an accident. It happens even in the house. When we want to embark on any trip, it is wise that as believers we commit the trip into the hands of the Lord through prayers.
It would be recalled that the scripture warned against laxity in prayer. The scripture told all to pray all the time because every day is filled with evil. As you are about to embark on that journey, commit the trip into the hands of the Lord. Several people stepped out in one piece but returned home in pieces.
There are so many people who left their house alive but were brought back home dead. That’s why we must endeavor to commit every trip to the hands of the Lord. As we pray to God before going on a trip, using the verses from the scripture gives more power to our prayers.
When we use the word of God in prayers, it gives us an advantage. The scripture said even if the heavens and earth pass over none of God’s word will return to Him void unless it has fulfilled the purpose for which it was sent. We have curated a list of Bible verses to pray before traveling.
