We always need God’s protection in our lives. But sometimes things happen that drive us to our knees. Regardless of your current circumstances, below is a prayer for protection that I wrote on crosswalk recently.
Are you feeling exposed today? Seeking the kind of shelter described in Psalm 91? Run to the Father’s fortress with these words on your lips and in your heart, knowing that God will stand guard over any area of your life you surrender to Him. Will you pray with me now for his divine protection?
Prayer for Protection
The world is changing so fast. Every day the media relays tales of those who disregard law, devise evil, and destroy both people and property. And because of what’s happening, fear sometimes rises up in my heart—for me, for those I love, and for people everywhere. Yet I know you are in control.
I ask you today for your supernatural protection, Lord—both personally and globally. Please station angels around my home and family to guard them from danger. Lead us away from temptation, and help us to run from the presence of questionable activities or harmful influences. When we’re weak, help us to look up to you and to hold on tight to the truth that you love us and want the best for us.

Remember to include prayers of protection for others as you pray for them each day. Our God is a Mighty Protector!
