As you do, keep in mind that this prayer is the divinely inspired Word of God! When we pray His Word as a reverent act of our faith, hope and humility, He is most assuredly present with us. He hears us — and He will honor you for your faith.

The Most Powerful Prayer of Protection — Adapted from Psalm 91

“Heavenly Father,
You have said that whoever dwells in
Your shelter, the shelter of the Most High,

that they will rest in Your shadow —
the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of You, Lord,
that You are my refuge and my fortress;
my God in Whom I trust.

Surely You will save me from the fowler’s snare,
and from the deadly pestilence.
You will cover me with Your feathers,
and under Your wings I will find my refuge;
Your faithfulness my shield and rampart.

With You, Lord,
I will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.

For You have said,
a thousand may fall at my side,
ten thousand at my right hand…
but it will not come near me.
I will only observe with my eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

I proclaim, ‘The Lord is my refuge!’
and You make Yourself my dwelling.

You promise no harm to overtake me,
 no disaster to come near my tent.
You command Your angels concerning me;
to guard me in all my ways.

They lift me up in their hands,
so that I don’t strike me foot against a stone.

Because I love You, Lord,
because I have acknowledged Your Name,
You have promised to rescue and protect me.

I call on You, and You will answer;
You will be with me in times of trouble,
delivering and honoring me
all the days of my life.
With long life You will satisfy me,
and show me Your salvation.

Thank You, Father, for loving and protecting me;
for guarding me in all my ways.
It is in Your good and Holy Name I pray.


[Adapted from Psalm 91]

Anytime you’re feeling worried, stressed or anxious return to this powerful prayer again and again. Please share it with anyone else who may benefit from its power of protection. And, may God bless and keep you safe always.

“According to your faith, let it be done unto you” –Matthew 9:29.
