Unlimited, all powerful Heavenly Father, I come to You in the Name of my Savior Jesus Christ. I give You everything I have and am so that I may bring honor to You. I thank and praise You for the protection I find in You like in no other place. You know me and want what is best for me in all situations, even the ones I don’t understand. Nahum 1:7The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him.

It is a great comfort and blessing to be able to do like David did when in trouble and know that You are right there with me. Psalm 34:6-7This poor man cried out, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them.

What a relief and joy it is to know, as a believer in Jesus Christ, that You promise to protect me from the evil one. I can feel safe in Your arms. You express this so eloquently in 2 Thessalonians 3:3 and Isaiah 41:10. “But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.” “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

As I live in this chaotic world and very uncertain time, I want to thank You for Your life-giving protection and love that is mine through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. Direct me to keep my eyes and heart focused daily on Your Word and You, and less on all the negativity in the world.

To Your honor and glory. Amen.

A Believer’s Prayer for God’s Protection from Evil

Lord, I come to You in Jesus’ Name to thank You for the protection You provide for Your children. With so much evil surrounding us on a daily basis, it is a blessing to hear what Jesus said in John 17:15. “I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.” Many times You shield us from the attacks of Satan even when we don’t realize it. In 2 Thessalonians 3:3, Paul tells us what You do for us so that we do not have to live in fear. “But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.”

Thank You for giving instructions in Your Word (the Bible) of what You want Your children (believers in Jesus Christ) to do so that You can give the protection that we desire and need. In James 4:7-8a You tell us that with the power of the Holy Spirit living within the believer, we can resist evil and have it flee from us. “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”

Teach me how to use Your Word for both defense and offense when the Evil One tries to distort my thinking and mislead me. I ask that You will continually develop in me the ability to use the armor of God, ‚Äčexplained in Ephesians 6:10-20, to defend against evil and to stay true to You. Direct me to have Ephesians 6:10-11 be a daily part of my life. “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”

Thank You for allowing me to bring these requests in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
