Prayer for Protection
In times of unease or danger we turn to God with a prayer for protection. It can be from protection to physical harm or spiritual harm. Just as Satan tempted our Lord Jesus Christ, so does he try to test us everyday. We need Gods protection to be able to overcome this trials.
Sometimes we need protection from other misguided souls who wish to harm us. We have to remember to also pray for their souls, for it might be the devil working through them. Either way these are some good prayers for protection.
Prayer for Protection
I come courageously asking for Your divine safety and protection over the world. You told us to always pray, for You are able to keep, take care of, and bring to pass the things that I hand over unto You in prayer. Lord, I commit all things into Your able hands. Father, I pray that You would send strong and mighty angels to watch over the world, cities, and communities. May You envelope each one in a hedge of protection to keep safe in all their ways.
Lord, thank You for the capability and authority that You have given us over the devil and over every evil spirit; and with that authority, I rebuke Satan, every principality, and every spirit of evil from hurting or harming those who belong to You, in any way, by the authority of the name of Jesus Christ.
Father, no weapon made against those who belong to You shall prosper. You told us to cast our dreams and our worries upon You, and You would sustain us. Therefore I cast my dreams and worries upon You. I am sure, that according to Your word, You shall sustain and keep safe all of my love and cares. Your word says You are vigilantly going to keep us from all evil.
Lord, because I trust in You to keep watch over my community of neighbors, friends and loved ones. I thank You for permitting Your peace to rest upon me and my every worry. Thank You and praise You for victory in Christ Jesus. Amen.”
Prayer for Protection at Work
“Heavenly Father, I beg for Your physical and spiritual protection in the workplace. Where our influence, our priorities, and our character are put to the tested every day. Lord, help us to remember that every dumb action has its consequences, and every careless word bears some weight among our coworkers. Others are listening, Lord, so set a watch before our mouths and guard the door of our lips. Protect us from those who try to sway our faith or tempt us to compromise our standards in the name of success. Place an invisible barrier over us that reminds us of Your protective love and that we belong to You.
God, our work is important to You, so turn us away from laziness or misplaced priorities. When others aim criticism our way or when conflict arises, guard us against impatience and anger. Protect us from our own volatile nature and help us to always take the high road of love in dealing with unhappy customers or disgruntled colleagues.Thank You for Your promise never to leave us or neglect us, and that Your Spirit lives inside of us to give wisdom, understanding, and security against those who want to pull us away or hurt us. You are Lord, and as our Employer, we look to You to maintain all the benefits involved in that relationship. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
