8 Good Prayers For Protection

In a world, full of uncertainties and disappointments, it is normal to find yourself scared and anxious most of the times. But the Bible says that God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)

It also goes on to encourage us to cast all our fears and our burdens onto God. This means that if there’s anything that scares you, anything that troubles you, or anything that makes you worry, you should go to the Lord in prayer and lay them at his feet. Our God is a faithful God and he hears our prayers and watches over all of us.

With life and all it entails, one thing that we all worry about is protection and safety for ourselves and our loved ones. The bible says in Psalm 127 that unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman watches in vain. Our God is the protector, in Him we find safety and comfort.

So you don’t have to worry about your safety and your family’s safety; say these prayers for protection and leave it to God. He will protect you, he will protect your home, your family and your friends. Just pray. May the Lord be with you.

    Are there any prayers for husbands to love and cherish their wives as the Bible says? And to protect their wives from others and family members who want to harm her or destroy their marriage? Prayers for discernment for the husband to put his wife first after they are married, to leave his parent, and his control. Need help finding prayers, not good at praying, lol.
