Prayer of Protection 

Psalm 91:1-4 (NLT)



Those who live in the shelter of the Most High 
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 
This I declare about the LORD: 
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; 
he is my God, and I trust him. 
For he will rescue you from every trap 
and protect you from deadly disease. 
He will cover you with his feathers. 
He will shelter you with his wings. 
His faithful promises are your armor and protection. 


Can I encourage you to meditate on this Psalm over this time and read it to the Lord as a prayer? This is a prayer for you, your family, your home, your work or business. Let’s pray it in faith and believe knowing that the Word of God is true – Psalm 119:160 (NLT) “The very essence of your words is truth; all your just regulations will stand forever.”


Lord God, thank you for being with me and that I can dwell with you. Thank you Lord that you are my refuge and my place of safety, You are my God and I trust in You.

Thank you that you have and will continue to rescue me from every trap and from deadly disease.

Your wings will shelter me and your promises are yes and amen.

I will not fear the terrors that come at me from the enemy, I will not fear the weapons used against me, I will not fear the diseases nor the disasters.

Lord I thank you for your angels that are watching over me and my family and protecting us.

Because I have kept my eyes on you and your love for me.

Lord, I thank you that you know my name, you know …………………. (Fill in the name of family, friends etc) and you hear my prayers. Amen

Isn’t it amazing that God knows us so personally so let’s pray this prayer not just for ourselves but also for our family, our businesses and our country. Make it personal by inserting the names of your family members, friends, workplaces and businesses.
