Prayer for A safe journey

about

Tefilat Haderech: 

This prayer is to be recited at the onset of a journey. When one travels (outside of city limits), especially on a long trip It is customary to recite this prayer regardless of the mode of transport. This prayer is asking HaShem to deliver the traveler safely, to protect them from any dangers or perils they may encounter along the way, and to return them in peace.

Prayer FOR A SAFE jOURNEY

May it be Your will, G‑d, our G‑d and the G‑d of our fathers, that You should lead us in peace and direct our steps in peace, and guide us in peace, and support us in peace, and cause us to reach our destination in life, joy, and peace (If one intends to return immediately, one adds: and return us in peace). Save us from every enemy and ambush, from robbers and wild beasts on the trip, and from all kinds of punishments that rage and come to the world. May You confer blessing upon the work of our hands and grant me grace, kindness, and mercy in Your eyes and in the eyes of all who see us, and bestow upon us abundant kindness and hearken to the voice of our prayer, for You hear the prayers of all. Blessed are You G‑d, who hearkens to prayer.
