A Prayer of Safety - Driving Home

My neighbor's house At this very moment in my Midwestern city, snow is falling at a madman's clip (i.e. fast). I began praying for my friends, my biological and church family. Since I often journal my prayers, I decided to blog my prayer so you might agree with me.

"Father, in the name of Jesus, I pray for all those out in the wintery weather. I especially pray for my Macedonia church family, my friends and my own family.

Lord, as they make their way home, I pray the angels of the Lord would encamp around them and keep them in all their ways. I pray the other drivers on the roads around them would act wisely, with mercy while exercising good judgment and using much caution. I pray a covering of protection around them as well.

I also pray that the peace of the Holy Spirit would surround them as a shield during the stressful drive home. I pray they would not be fearful or panicked, but know that You are with them, guiding and directing them in every way. I pray that you would preserve them and their vehicles for your namesake. You are a faithful Protector.

Father, please give them patience knowing that waiting is an important part of any journey - but particularly during the journey home on snow packed roads. I plead the blood of Jesus over each one and I thank you for their safe arrival to their destination.

I praise you because You keep us in perfect peace and You make us to dwell in safety. I glorify You, and You alone because trauma may be on the left and the right of them, but please do not let it come near them! Thank you for your faithfulness and all the praise reports to come!

In Jesus mighty and matchless name I pray… Amen and so be it!"

  1. I came upon your post from a Google Alert I set up on the phrase "plead the blood". I do this every day for my family and believe God showed me something about this which I wrote about in my blog in 2006. You might be interested in reading it at: http://roadrevelations.org/?p=50. Be blessed!

  2. I enjoyed your post, Bill. I grew up with term and believe in the power of the shed blood of Jesus - regardless what you call it or how you call it.

    Have you noticed the modern church is often guilty of not singing, teaching or praying referencing the Bood? Or worse, some use it like a good luck charm. That's one of the reasons I love the hymns so.

    Interesting.
