A Prayer for Travelers this Memorial Day Weekend

With 33 million Americans driving 40 miles or more for Memorial Day Weekend (684,000 of them in the DC region), and another 2.6 million flying away somewhere for the holiday (116,000 of them in the DC region), I want to share this prayer "For Travelers" from The Book of Common Prayer: 

O God, whose glory fills the whole creation, and whose presence we find wherever we go: Preserve those who travel, particularly on this Memorial Day weekend; surround them with your loving care; protect them from every danger; and bring them in safety to their journey's end; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
