God, you called your servant Abraham from Ur in Chaldea, watching over him in all his wanderings, and guided the Hebrew people as they crossed the desert. Guard this your servant David who, for love of your Name, makes a pilgrimage to Compostela.
Be his companion on the way, his guide at the crossroads, his strength in weariness, his defence in dangers, his shelter on the path, his shade in the heat, his light in darkness, his comfort in discouragement, and the firmness of his intentions, that through your guidance he may arrive safely at the end of his journey and, enriched with grace and virtue, may return to his home filled with salutary and lasting joy.
