The Bible informs us about the protection of God. As humans, we want to see God’s protection as a magic force field that keeps us from all harm. Yes, God can prevent any evil or destruction but we must remember that we live in a fallen world where we have free will. Many times, God works in ways that we do not understand. Sometimes God’s protection comes in the form of peace and strength in the middle of despair. Other times God’s protection comes as an ending because he sees something more on the horizon that we cannot see.
As a believer in Jesus, we are promised a new life covered under the protection of God in which NOTHING can separate us from His love. Rest knowing that no matter what hardship you face, God is your provider and protector! These Bible verses about protection will help you focus on knowing there is a bigger plan and God has chosen you for greater things!
A Prayer for the Protection of God
Father, I want to live in the shadow of Your wing. When life is hard, and I don’t know what to do, help me remember that You are with me and that I am never alone. I cannot live without You. I cannot face tomorrow without the promise of Your presence. Today I choose to walk and live under the protection of You, The Most High. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Prayer for Protection of Home and Family
God, when I look upon the state of this world, I often feel fear, especially for those in my family. I ask that you protect the members of my family and my household. Help them to feel that home is a safe place where we can enjoy your word freely and worship you. Amen
For Divine Protection
Dear Father, thank You for Your divine protection and the support that upholds us from the inside out. Please keep your commandments in my mind. Give me the discernment to see temptation for what it is. Give me the wisdom and humility to allow You to move in me so that I’ll take the way of escape You have already provided. Amen.
Jesus, no matter what may come against me, I ask for both your protection and healing. I know you are my Defender and the Great Physician. Be both of those things for me now, and protect and heal me in my circumstances now. Amen.
Dear Jesus, I want to trust You even when things aren’t going as I’d imagined they would. Give me faith to believe Your plans for me are good, and show me how to use Your “no’s” as opportunities to grow. Fill me with hope as I wait for your perfect plans to unfold. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Spiritual and Physical Fire
Jesus, I pray for protection from literal and spiritual fire. We know that many parts of the world are ravaged by wildfires, and I ask that you protect the homes and environments affected by these natural disasters. In addition, I pray for anyone, myself included, who is undergoing spiritual or physical fire. Keep us safe as we face the fiery temptations and trials that come our way. Amen.
Dear Lord of the Sabbath, forgive us for falling short of Your will and for disobeying Your command to honor the Sabbath day and to keep it holy. Please quicken our hearts to be Jesus followers in every way and on every day of the week. We exist to bring You praise. Amen.
