Pray For Safe Travel For Brycie and Hutson

As I write this, Brycie and Hutson are boarding the plane to travel from Beijing to Guangshou.  I would ask all our friends, family and blog followers to pray for their safe travel.  I just spoke to Brycie and she said Hutson is quiet and pensive.  He is leaving all that he has ever known . . . but he is coming to a much better life . . . a life with a mom and dad and brothers and sisters, and most of all, Jesus!  He is excited but scared.  Please lift him up.

Listen to the words of the Book of Tobit:  Tobit called his son and said to him:  "My son, prepare whatever you need for the journey, and set out with your kinsman.  May God in heaven protect you on the way and bring you back to me safe and sound; and may his angel accompany you for safety, my son."

All-powerful and ever-living God,
when Abraham left his own land
and departed from his own people,
you kept him safe all through his journey.
Protect us, who also are your servants;
walk by our side to help us;
be our companion and our strength as we travel on the road
and our refuge in every adversity.
Lead us, O Lord,
so that we will reach our destination in safety
and happily return to our homes.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
