From Chalice Worship (1997), of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ):

We pray for those soaring into the skies, sailing across the seas, and driving on the roads.

Give strength and wisdom to all who use the machines of travel, and those who have responsibility for other people’s lives.

Save us from selfishness and from taking undue risks; give us patience and the ability to move in this world in peace.

We ask this for our health’s sake, and for the glory of the Lord of life, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Language modernized and altered otherwise from The Book of Worship for Church and Home (1965), of The Methodist Church:

Grant, O Lord, that we may so enjoy our vacation that our bodies may be strengthened, our minds renewed, and our energies quickened for the perfect freedom of your service; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
