Prayer for Protection

Dear God,

I come to You today seeking Your protection and guidance. I know that You are always with me and that You are my rock and my fortress. I trust in Your love and Your grace, and I know that You are able to keep me safe from all harm.

Please watch over me and my loved ones, and keep us safe from all danger. Protect us from physical harm, from temptation and sin, and from the attacks of the enemy. May Your angels surround us and keep us in Your care.

I pray that You would give me the strength and the wisdom to follow Your will, and that You would guide me in the paths of righteousness. Help me to trust in You and to rely on Your protection at all times.

Thank You for Your loving care and protection. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
