Scriptures for “Traveling Mercies”

Prayer isn’t a religious thing; it’s a legal thing. We are told to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) and that includes praying over our traveling! God watches over His Word, so let’s give Him something to work with by praying.

Scriptures for Traveling Mercies

Here are scripture verses to pray over yourself and your trip: 

Traveling mercies 

Psalm 37:4-7 Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord, trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. (KJV)

Deuteronomy 28:6 You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.

Matthew 21:21-22 Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you shall say to this mountain ‘be removed and cast into the sea’ and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.
