God of the skies, roads, seas and all other spaces,
Calm me in my rush this morning as I pack and drive to and park at the airport.
I know I’ll never be as adept of a traveler as George Clooney in Up in the Air. I pack too much because… well, I may need it.
Give me the peace as I’m 30,000 feet above the earth- whether the winds rock the plane or the plane cruises smoothly.
And may my destination provide me with the comfort I anticipated. Amen.
