When facing a crisis, we are called to turn to God. When King David’s back was against the wall, surrounded by enemies on all sides, it was the Lord he called out to. To this day, his prayer is one of the most powerful deliverance prayers we can pray to Heaven. Always remember, it is the Lord Himself Who will save you from your enemies and all despair. Let us pray.
Powerful Prayer of Deliverance When Facing Enemies–Psalm 3
“Lord, how many are my foes!
How many rise up against me!
Many are saying of me,
“God will not deliver him.”
But You, Lord, are a shield around me,
my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
I call out to You, Lord,
and You answer me from Your Holy mountain.
I lie down and sleep;
I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.
I will not fear though tens of thousands
assail me on every side.
Deliver me, my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
break the teeth of the wicked.
From the Lord comes deliverance.
May Your great blessing be on all Your people.
[Prayer adapted from Psalm 3]
This prayer is a perfect picture of God’s mighty help in the middle of life’s most difficult situations. God protects us. He is enough even when we lose our way and lose everything else. God is a God of restoration – He restores us back to even better than we were before. And, God is always accessible. He’s present to help you no matter where you are or what you’re going through. Call out to Him and trust His perfect resolve.
