Prayer before flying

O Lord My God, you are the protector of the innocent. As I embark on a journey flying above the earth and its creations, protect me with your wings like a hen would its chicks. Let no evil thoughts malign the thoughts of any of your children that would lead them to unholy acts while we are aboard.Let no snags slow us down. May our pilot and his crew be filled with Your protecting grace that your wisdom will guide their thoughts and actions. Let no fears capture us. Rather, may we be filled with the grace to see the wonders of your creations, experience the beauty of your magnificence and be grateful of your protection. Amen
