Atlanta’s Ice Nightmare – Prayer For Travelers


Atlanta’s Ice Nightmare – Prayer For Travelers

My husband left work early yesterday to teach a preschool co-op class, so that I could attend ongoing insurance training.  When he arrived home at 2pm, he put his foot down and said that we were not going anywhere, period, end of story.  He even called my friend to tell her so; the man rarely calls my family or friends.  We count ourselves fortunate that he made it home safely, when so many others were not able to do so.

With the current road situation in Atlanta, and so many people stranded, I thought it worthy to post these prayers today.  Pictures of Atlanta.  If you’re not the praying type, I urge you to send positive thoughts to those who are still on the roads without access to food or shelter, and the first responders who are trying to remedy the situation as best that they can with the resources that they have.

Prayer For Travelers

Shared from Catholic.Org:

O Almighty and merciful God, who hast commissioned Thy angels to guide and protect us, command them to be our assiduous companions from our setting out until our return; to clothe us with their invisible protection; to keep from us all danger of collision, of fire, of explosion, of fall and bruises, and finally, having preserved us from all evil, and especially from sin, to guide us to our heavenly home. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.


Prayer for Motorists

Grant me O Lord a steady hand and watchful eye.
That no one shall be hurt as I pass by.
Thou gavest life, I pray no act of mine may take away
or mar that gift of Thine.
Shelter those, dear Lord, who bear me company,
From the evils of fire and all calamity.
Teach me to use my car for others’ need;
Nor miss through love of undue speed
the beauty of the world; that thus I may
with joy and courtesy go on my way.
St. Christopher, holy patron of travellers,
protect me and lead me safely to my destiny.

Do the roads in your locale become completely impassible on a regular basis?

    Sending my prayers to all who need it at this time. The weather has been a bit treacherous in our parts too but not as bad as some parts of the US. What often happens in bad weather is that people get antsy if you drive a bit slower and they try to overtake you… never made sense to me. What’s the rush? Last week, a taxi in a hurry swiped my car in NYC and took off. I called the cops and had to go pick up papers to file. I’ve always loved St Christopher’s prayer and keep his card.
    Have a great day!
