Psalm 91 Prayer for Protection

The book of Psalm 91 talks about the safety in abiding in the presence of the Almighty God. The blessings promised in this chapter are not for every believer but rather for those living in close fellowship with God. It’s for those who are seeking to abide in his presence.

Those who rightly know God will set their love upon him and one of the ways that we can do this is through prayer and by constantly calling on his name and meditating on his word because, in due time, God is faithful to deliver. Psalm 91 vs 1 to 2 says, he who dwells in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the lord, he is my refuge and my fortress. My God in whom will I trust. And so now join me, lift up your faith and invite God’s presence wherever you are.

He is our refuge. He is our fortress and we need to place complete trust in him and believe that he will hear and answer our prayers. Now let us pray.

Lord Jesus, the Almighty, and risen king.
I thank you for your word
I thank you for your promises because you have promised to deliver me from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence
I give you all the glory and I give you all thanks that my life is protected by divine grace from all the temptations of the devil.
Your word in Psalm 91 has promised me great security in the midst of danger.
For it says, he shall cover you with his feathers and under His wings, you shall take refuge.
His truth shall be your shield and buckler
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night nor the arrow that flies by day.
Nor of the pestilence that walks in the darkness
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noon
And father I declare your word to be true
I will not be afraid of the terror that walks by night
I will trust in you to be my shield and defend me against the arrow that flies by day
No pestilence and no destruction will come before me or my family in Jesus name
Thank you, Lord, for going before us and for covering us father
Thank you for being in our midst and that our future is secure in you dear Jesus
Father, I desire to dwell in your presence and I desire to walk with you Lord
May your presence be found around me
May your presence be found in my home, and in my room
May your presence be with me as I travel.
Be with me always father
Your word tells me that a thousand may fall at my side and ten thousand at my right hand but it shall not come near me
And I thank you that in the midst of great darkness, you will preserve me
You will preserve us
You will preserve our families and our loved ones
I take comfort that your word and your promises are sure and they are strong as they are true
And I am persuaded that as we, your children walk through this journey of life, you’re never too far to hear our cry
You’re forever near to hear our call
And father I desire to be in close fellowship with you
Strengthen my desire to seek your presence daily
Thank you for assuring us that we’re not alone as your children
We’re never forsaken, never left in the clutches of the enemy
We are never left in uncertainty father
Because you’re the good Shepherd
You’ll never lead us to destruction Lord
And even if we face hard times
You’ve said that you’ll be with us
You’re the God who rescues
A mighty God who delivers and shines the light in the darkness of
Your word in Psalm 91 vs 10 says
No evil shall befall you nor shall any plague come near you
For he shall give his angels charge over you
To keep you in all your ways
They’ll lift you up in their hands so that you will not strike your foot against the stone
You’ll tread on the lion and on the cobra
You’ll trample the great lion and the serpent
And Lord I thank you for these promises
Thank you for the angels that you have given charge over my life
Thank you for the angels that surround me and walk with me on a daily basis Father
And even though I cannot see, I believe for it is written in your word lord
You have given angels charge over me to keep me in all my ways
And so I say today
No evil, no scheme, no trick or trap from the enemy shall befall me because my God, Jehovah is my protector
He is my dwelling place
I say today that no plague or disaster will touch my home
Because I dwell in the presence of God where I desire to dwell
It’s where I want to dwell
And I place my trust fully in you that you will hear our prayer father
Even for the one who’s listening
I surrender to your will completely and I declare that I depend on you and you alone Jesus
Lord, I place myself under your sovereign protection and lordship
Your words in the book of psalm 91 bring me hope and comfort
And in agreement with everyone listening, we bow down and lift up our faith as we lift up our heads and look up to you
A merciful and loving God filled with compassion
Thank you for your amazing grace
Continue to make your presence known to me in my life Lord
Thank you for hearing this prayer
Unto you, I give all the glory and unto you, I give all the praise
In the mighty and powerful name of Jesus. Amen
