St. Raphael the Archangel – Prayer Before Trip
Dear St. Raphael,
your lovely name means “God heals”.
The Lord sent you to young Tobias
to guide him throughout a long journey.
Upon his return,
you taught him how to cure his father’s blindness.
How natural, therefore,
for Christians to pray
for your powerful help
for safe travel and a happy return.
This is what we ask for ourselves
as well as for all who are far from home.
