The world is yours, Magnanimous God,
and all people live by your grace.
Shelter and aid those who are traveling,
who walk or drive or fly,
who hasten towards or flee from.
May they be careful, but not afraid,
safely reach their destinations,
and find room and welcome there.
Wherever we wander in your spacious world,
remind us that we never journey beyond your loving care,
revealed in the road you made through the sea
for the children of Israel,
and in the traveling companion you sent
