Prayer for Protection From Evil

Heavenly Father,

We come to You today seeking Your protection from evil. We know that You are a God of love and righteousness, and that Your mercy endures forever. We trust in Your promise to never leave us or forsake us, and we rest in the knowledge that You are always with us, watching over us and guiding us.

We ask that You would surround us with Your holy angels and that You would shield us from the attacks of the enemy. We pray that You would give us the strength and courage to resist temptation and to stand firm in our faith, knowing that You are always with us, even in the darkest of times.

We also ask that You would protect our loved ones, our homes, and all that we hold dear. We pray that You would watch over us and keep us safe and that You would guide us in Your ways and lead us to Your truth.

We give You all the glory, honor, and praise, knowing that You are a faithful God who always keeps Your promises.

We pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
