If you are living in an abusive situation, live or work in high crime area, or just simply would like to have God’s protection over you and family wherever you go, here is a prayer straight out of Psalm 91 that I personally have been praying for years. I believe this is something we should pray every single day before we leave the house in light of the world we live in nowadays. In fact, I created a pdf of this for you to download and print out so you can have it handy during your prayer time. You can download it at the bottom of this post.
I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I have been protected by the Lord after praying this. I know it works! How do I know? One day back in early May of 2001, my husband (at the time) and I got in a rush trying to get to a meeting his boss required him to attend. In the rush process, I forgot to pray this just trying to get out the door. Just under halfway to his work place, we got collected up in a chain reaction accident. Five cars altogether. Praise God no one was injured. When I pulled myself together, and started to get out of the car, it hit me! I forgot to pray for protection! And I can tell you that I have never forgotten again! Not one time since. And you know what else? I have never been in any car accidents since. And this is only one example. I have many more that are not car related.
Remember, God loves you! He WILL protect you from all evil, and your prayer of faith in Him is all He needs to make that happen!
I declare in the Name of Jesus:
I dwell in the secret place of the Most High God, and I abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; My God; in Him I do trust.
Surely, You shall deliver me from the snare of the fowler, from the noisome pestilence.
You shall cover me with Your feathers, and under Your wings I do trust. Your truth shall be my shield and buckler.
I shall not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flies by day; nor for the pestilence that walks in darkness; nor for the destruction that wastes at noonday.
A thousand shall fall at my side, and ten thousand at my right hand, but it shall not come near me. Only with my eyes shall I see the reward of the wicked.
Because I have made the Lord Most High, Who is my refuge, my habitation, there shall no evil befall me, neither shall any plague come near my dwelling.
For You shall give Your angels charge over me, to keep me in all my ways. They shall hold me up in their hands, so I won’t even trip and fall over a stone.
I shall tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the dragon shall I trample underfoot.
Because I have set my love upon You, therefore You will deliver me: You will set me on high because I have known Your Name.
I shall call upon You, and You will answer me: You will be with me in trouble: You will deliver me and honor me.
With long life will You satisfy me and show me Your salvation.
I thank You Lord for Your Divine protection of me. Amen!
