Day 7 – Prayer of Protection – As we wrap up these 7 days of prayer, I had to finish with a much needed and favorite Psalm of mine. Psalm 91, A Psalm of Safety of Abiding in the Presence of God.
“Father God as our nation and the world are on edge not knowing what the outcome of the election will entail, I continue to look to you! As I have acknowledged you and your son, Yeshua, from Day 1 to today knowing that I cannot live this world apart from you without your love, peace, grace, mercy and wisdom, I rest in your covering knowing that whatever each day brings especially today, I am covered under your wings. I stand on this beautiful psalm of protection and ask that you cover my family, friends, neighbors, community, the nation and this world and protect us from any evil that may try to befall us and that your peace and love, which covers a multitude of sins, stops the hate and violence in this world. As the love pours of of my heart from you, let it change everyone in its path, so we can unite together and declare Glory to God our helper, our healer, our Lord!
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the [a]fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and [b]buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall [c]bear you up,
Lest you [d]dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will [e]set him on high, because he has known My name.
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”
I am every so grateful for your love and protection and rest as I abide in your presence today and always. In Jesus Name. Amen.
