In case you haven't noticed - we travel. a LOT. I used to always pray the same prayer no matter what growing up in regards to travel..."Lord, please allow us to arrive safely. Please protect the vehicle/airplane/bus/etc and get us to our destination." I'm not totally convinced there is something wrong with that prayer but I have been convicted that it's not how I should be praying in regards to travel.
So, for the past few years my prayers have been something more similar to "God, thank you for today and for the chance to be going to _____. I pray that You would use this trip to glorify Your name above all things. If that means we arrive safely & smoothly then that would be lovely. If Your name will be glorified more through a different path/outcome then I ask for Your wisdom in handling whatever may come...even if that means that one or more of us does not arrive at all. I trust that Your plans are higher than mine and that You will work it for the glory of Your name. Amen."
This was so huge for me because I guess I've always just stopped right after the "safely arrived at home" part. I've given Him the glory for getting us there, but then just stopped and moved on to the next thing. But that's not how He works is it? Everything is part of a bigger picture, a greater plan, & the furtherance of His kingdom. Gratefully praying that I (through His grace & strength) can indeed bring glory to His name by living out His love in the day to day.
