The Protection Prayer

Heavenly Father,

We come to You today seeking Your protection and guidance. We trust in Your power to keep us safe from harm and to watch over us as we go about our daily lives.

We ask that You would be a shield around us, and that Your Word, which is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path, would guide us through the dangers of this world.

We also pray that You would grant us wisdom and discernment to recognize and avoid any threats to our safety. We ask that You would give us the strength and courage to stand firm in the face of adversity, and that You would grant us peace and comfort in times of trouble.

We give You all praise and honor, for You are our refuge and strength. We trust in Your faithfulness and Your love.

In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.”
