The History of Travel Mercies

The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.”
- Psalms 145:9[2]
“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
- Hebrews 4:16

Have you ever been in church and heard someone ask God for “Travel Mercies” or pray that someone going on a trip would receive them? My wife and I would hear this sentiment repeated in churches we attended all over the country as we moved around throughout my Air Force career. It came to be a running joke between us because we weren’t sure why God had established this special category of mercy. Obviously these believers were just asking God to bless them or their loved ones during travel, a time when all of us can frequently use all the help we can get.

I had never seen a “Travel Mercy,” so I decided to create one using hyperbolic crochet. Yes, it’s rather geeky and probably not very cool, but making them brings me a lot of joy, and I would be happy to show you how. I like making Travel Mercies so much that I have turned it into a ministry (plus I need to make a little money to support my crafting habits…)

“Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.”
- Luke 6:36

It is my desire to see Travel Mercies spread throughout the world and that each person who receives one would be reminded of how much God loves him or her. Also, we should all remember to show God’s love and mercy to one another and cut each other some slack – especially when we travel! Be blessed!
