Prayer About Protection

Sovereign Lord,

We humbly come before You seeking Your protection and guidance. We place our trust in Your goodness and faithfulness, knowing that You are ever-present with us. We ask that You would encircle us with Your shield of protection, keeping us safe from harm.

We ask that You would watch over us as we go about our day, and guide us in the paths You have for us. We pray that You would protect us from any harm that may come our way and that You would grant us the strength and courage to face any challenges that may arise.

We also lift up our loved ones before You, asking that You would keep them safe and healthy and that You would watch over them as they go about their day. We trust in Your love and care for us, and know that You will always be with us.

We give You all the praise and honor, for You are our protector and guide. We place our trust in You always. Amen.
