Let angels rule your dream.

Prayer for Protection from Harm and Danger
Do you ever fear for your physical safety–or for that of your family? If so, pray today’s prayer for protection from harm and danger! It’s all God’s Word, and He will protect you from every evil thing!
One of the most powerful passages about safety and protection in the Bible is found in Psalm 91
This passage says:
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.’
Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked.
Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation” (Psalm 91:1-16 NKJV).
God’s Word says He will protect you if you do two things:

- Dwell in the secret place of the Most High (the keen awareness and stewardship of God’s presence); and
- Say, verbally, that the Lord is your refuge and your fortress; your God, in whom you shall trust.
You can depend on God’s Word. It is true every time! And when He says He will protect you, He will! All you have to do is believe Him and meet the two conditions listed above. When you believe His Word and meet His conditions, you will see His promises manifest in your life.
So are you dwelling in the secret place of the Most High? Are you confessing that the Lord is your refuge, your fortress, and your God? Or, would you to begin doing so right now?
If so, pray this prayer for protection from harm and danger:
“Father God, I come to You in Jesus’ name.
Father God, I love You. I thank You that Your Word says You will protect me from all harm. Your Word says You will protect me from all danger … and all I have to do is dwell in the secret, protected place of Your Presence, living under Your shadow–and confess that You are my Lord, my God, and my refuge.
So Father, I confess today that YOU are my Lord. You are my God. You are my refuge and my fortress. You are my God, in whom I trust. You are my very-present help in trouble. I am never alone, for You will never leave me nor forsake me.
Father God, I sense Your brooding over me today
Thank You that Your Holy Spirit hovering over me and my life. Thank You that You are bringing me into higher order. Thank You that You are keeping me safe, protecting me, and shielding me from danger right now.
Please help me to honor Your Spirit and Your presence as you hover and brood over me. Help me to obey You in all things; to think of You and meditate on You and Your Word at all times.
Father, as I obey You by dwelling in Your presence, I decree and thank You that surely You shall deliver me today from the snare of the fowler. Everything that tries to bring me down shall fail, today and forever. I am flying high on Your wings, and I shall stay there, mounted up on the wind of Your Spirit an eagle soaring through the skies.
Father, I thank You that You shall also deliver me from the perilous pestilence
You are delivering me right now from all sickness, attacks, plagues, infections, injuries, and epidemics. You are delivering me right now by the blood of Jesus and keeping me safe and healthy.
Thank You, Father, for covering me with Your feathers. Thank You for hiding me under Your wings. I decree that I shall always dwell in the warmth and safety of Your Spirit and Your presence.
Father, Your Word is my standard. Your truth is my shield, and every word You speak has power in my life. I boldly confess Your Word over myself, and Your Word in my mouth has just as much power as it does when it comes straight Your mouth.
Abba Father, I decree that I shall not be afraid, for I am made perfect in Your love
I shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day. I shall not be afraid of sickness or destruction. A thousand may fall at my side, and ten thousand at my right hand, but it shall not come nigh me.
Father, I thank You that no evil shall befall me, nor shall any plague come near my dwelling. Thank You that Your angels protect me and my family. Thank You for giving Your angels charge over us, to keep us in all our ways.
Thank You that Your angels are bearing me and my family up in their hands right now. We are so safe in your angels’ hands that we won’t even stub our toes. We have deer’s feet in high places, Lord, and we are perfectly immune from all danger by Your Spirit and Jesus’ blood.
Thank You, Father, that my family and I are safe from accidents, destruction, and death
We have life and safety abundantly to overflowing. Nothing bad shall happen to me or my family. No evil shall befall us, for we are hidden in Your presence and under the shadow of Your wings. All things work together for our good, for we love You and are called according to Your purpose.
Father, Your Word says that my family and I may see the wicked receiving their evil reward, but we ourselves shall receive only good rewards. We are hidden in Christ and we walk uprightly with You by Your Spirit and grace. We are the righteousness of God in Christ.
So Papa God, I thank You today that I am healed by the stripes of Jesus
Thank You that no weapon formed against me shall prosper. Thank You that I shall condemn every tongue that rises against me in judgment. Thank You that no curses shall alight on me, for they have no cause–and a curse without a cause cannot alight.
I thank You that I am hidden in Christ, covered with His blood, in complete right standing with You through Jesus. I submit to You, O Father, and I resist the devil. The devil flees from me. I draw near to You, Lord, and You draw near to me. And as I do, I thank You that I shall tread upon the lion and the cobra. I shall trample the young lion and the dragon under my feet.
Your Word says that You will set me on high, because I have known Your name. You are right, Lord. I DO know Your name. You have taught Your name to me personally. Over and over, You have shown me who You are:
- You have shown me and taught me that You are my Abba, my Father, my God.
- You are my Lord, and my times are in Your hand.
- You are my God, my ever-present help in trouble.
- You are the One who loves me best and knows everything about me.
- You are He who makes a way for me when there is no way.
- You are the One who provides water for me in the desert.
- You are He who provides all my needs according to Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
- Holy Spirit, You are my Comforter, my Instructor, my Convicter, my Helper, and my Guide.
- Lord Jesus, You are Faithful and True.
- You are my Friend who sticks closer than a brother.
- You are my Witness and Teacher, the Firstborn from among the dead.
- You are my Resurrection Life; the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
You, O God, are pure. You are true. You are worthy. And You are mine.
You are my God. My Father. My King. My Lord. My comfort. My help. My friend, and the only One I can depend on.
So Father, deliver me now from all devices of the enemy
Lead me away from temptation, harm, danger, mal-intent, and loss. Deliver me from these things, I pray, and rout the plans of the enemy. Work everything the enemy has brought against me ever in my life for my good, for I love You and am called according to Your purpose.
Father, thank You for delivering me. Thank You for setting me on high. I am calling upon You, and You will answer me. You have already answered me, for Your Word says, “Before you call, I will answer.”
So thank You for Your answers, Abba. Thank You for Your mighty work on my behalf. Thank You for Your Word, your Spirit, Your salvation, Your whole Self actively at work in my life. Your grace is sufficient for me, for Your strength is made perfect in weakness.
I humble myself under Your mighty hand, and in due time You will exalt me
I cast all my cares upon You, for You care for me. I am calling upon You, and You will answer me. You will be with me in trouble. You will deliver me and honor me … and with LONG life You will satisfy me, and show me Your salvation.
Thank You, Father. I receive the full and complete benefit of Your holy promises, for You are not a man that You should lie. Your words are “yes” and “amen” in Christ, so I humbly give You praise and glory for doing all these things in my life.
In Jesus’ holy and precious name I pray, amen and AMEN!”

A Powerful Prayer for God’s Protection With Commentary
What are some of the most powerful prayers in the Bible? They are the Psalms. Here is one from Psalm 91 that is one of the most desperate cries for protection that we can pray back to God.
Psalm 91 A Prayer for Protection
This psalm appears to be a prayer for protection for God’s people against the terrors and the ever-present dangers that surround God’s people daily but could also apply to missionaries who are overseas and fighting against spiritual attacks from the enemies, it could be a prayer that our modern day military veteran could utter in context with the language descriptive of present day settings, it could be about a person or army that is set against insurmountable odds who is about to enter battle, or it might be someone who is undergoing several trials in their life and having spiritual and human forces pressuring them to give up in doubt and fear or maybe even someone who is battling cancer or go into surgery. Some of the terrors are ambiguous leaving room for every Christian to apply it in their everyday struggles against their three enemies; the flesh, the world, and the Enemy. The conclusion is that nothing can thwart the child or children of God collectively, even when their eyes lie to them and the situation seems exceedingly hopeless because in the improbable our God does the impossible.
The shelter of God is to be under His shadow, Israel was in the desert wilderness of the cloud of God’s glory protecting or sheltering them from the scorching sun that would normally kill any human but He is our refuge (to run to) and our fortress (against all spiritual and human attacks) and in God we do trust because “He who dwells” with the Most High is in the most secure of all places on earth.
The Psalmist says here that He will “deliver” from the “snare” of the fowler or trapper. The fowler is an old English word for someone who hunts for game and setting a snare is really a trap for animals. The history of Christianity is full of people who set traps to imprison or kill them as part of the widespread persecution that has occurred for the last 2,000 years.
Who is the “he” who “will deliver?” It is God Himself and He will deliver us from the traps and persecution hunters but also from pestilence, which is disease. He isn’t promising to deliver us from all persecution but He’ll cover us “with His pinions.
” The pinions of an eagle, which is often the way God describes Himself, is the terminal, or end sections of the eagle’s wings but includes the full wing; the carpus, metacarpus, and the phalanges. That places the believer “under His wings” where there is refuge. God’s faithfulness is as a shield (a lifesaver in battles of the mind, flesh, and the Enemy).
The “buckler” is a smaller shield that fits around an arm that is the one used for fighting, showing that while He protects us, He also fights for us.
During the nighttime is the time I must honestly admit that I have the greatest doubts…whether they be in the middle of the night or in my dreams or in a dark night of the soul. No arrow that is aimed at me, the fiery darts of the enemy (Eph 6:16) nor any disease or pestilence that comes in the darkness and not even that which comes at noon can, in the end, sleigh me.
Here is descriptive language for the armies of Israel or the U.S. Military and they have no problem identifying with this language because thousands have fallen and tens of thousands on both their right side and their left, but the child of God is not kept from God even by death (Rom 8:36-39).We have no fear of death for in even in death we’ll be present with the Lord (2 Cor 5:8) but those who do not have the Most High must fear both the death of the body and soul (Luke 12:5). In contrast, making the Lord our dwelling place ensures no plagues consumed Egypt.
Those who are God’s children have the privilege of having God’s angels given charge or orders to protect them (Luke 4:10) and will minster to those who are His saints (Heb 1:14) and if by God’s design, can save us from a deathly fall or injury.
The number of miracles throughout Christianity’s history is remarkable in the numbers of incidents and the impossible escapes from death. I believe when we get to the Kingdom of Heaven we will be shocked at the number of times that we have escaped death or serious injury without ever knowing about it in this life.
In verse 14, God is now the One Who is speaking to the psalmist and to us by extension as He says “because he (or she) holds fast to me (God) in love, I, God, will deliver him or her, and it is I, God, who will protect him or her.
Why? Because he or she knows my name and remember that Jesus said that My sheep know my voice and listen to my voice (John 10:14, 27). Now, put your name in verse 14 as “Because [Sarah or Matthew] holds fast to me in love, I will deliver [Sarah or Matthew]; I will protect [Sarah or Matthew] because he/she knows my name.
” Try putting a personal touch on all Scripture where it says he or she, you or they and put your own name in it. It makes Scripture come alive!
The conclusion is that whenever the children of God are in desperate situations, they can call on Him and know that He “will answer” them. In their times of great trouble there will be a Great Rescuer, the Redeemer.
God Himself not only rescues them but will honor them with “long life” (how about eternal life!) and then God will satisfy them and then show them His salvation. We who have been born again have seen Who His salvation is and that is Jesus Christ Himself.
The next time you feel you are in an impossible situation, turn to Psalm 91 and cry out to God, He will hear and answer you, and pray this back to God.
