The Story of the “Prayer for Protection”
The “Prayer for Protection” is known the world over, and Unity is often asked how it came into existence. James Dillet Freeman explained once in his Unity Magazine column, “Life Is a Wonder”:
Let me tell you how I wrote Unity's “Prayer for Protection.”
When World War II was raging in Europe, we received many letters and phone calls from people caught in the conflict, but for a long time we did not have a prayer for protection that we were all satisfied with. This is how one came.
Silent Unity has always written a special Christmas Prayer Service just for Silent Unity workers. And in 1940 I was asked to prepare this service. We had never before needed a prayer for protection, but in 1940 we needed one, so I wrote one to go with the Christmas service. What I wrote was a little four-line verse:
“The light of Christ directs me; The love of Christ enfolds me; The power of Christ protects me; The presence of Christ upholds me.”
I had hardly finished this Christmas service before Silent Unity came to me again and asked me to write a protection pamphlet that we could send to people, so I did. It was called His Protecting Spirit.
A Prayer for Wartime
They told me they wanted affirmative prayers for protection on the back page. Among these was the verse from the 23rd Psalm: “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me” (Ps. 23:4 KJV).
One of the young women who worked in Silent Unity was reading my manuscript as I wrote it, and as she finished it, she came up to me and said: “Jim, if I were a woman in England and they were dropping bombs on my roof, or if I were a soldier and someone was pointing a loaded gun at me, I wouldn't want to feel I was walking through the valley of the shadow of death. Can't you do better than that?”
I thought, You want me to do better than the 23rd Psalm? You have to be your mind. But rolling around in the back of my mind was the little verse I had written as a prayer for protection at Christmas.
How the “Prayer for Protection” Was Written
I had written it just for Silent Unity, but now it came rolling up to the front of my mind and demanded that I pay attention to it. It enticed me to see what I could make of it.
First I took the rhymes from it. I felt it would be more universally received if it was not a rhyme. Then I changed Christ to God. It had been Christ because it was a Christmas prayer, but I felt if we were going to send it around the world, God might be more acceptable to more people. So the little prayer became:
“The light of God surrounds me, The love of God enfolds me, The power of God protects me, The presence of God watches over me.”
That is the way we first printed it. Then a line came to me that I felt would make the prayer even more powerful. The line was:
“Wherever I am, God is.”
I added it as the fifth line. The “Prayer for Protection” first appeared as a four-lined prayer in 1941, but when we reprinted it in 1943, it appeared in the form it has had ever since.
“The light of God surrounds me; The love of God enfolds me; The power of God protects me; The presence of God watches over me. Wherever I am, God is!”
God’s Message of Love
The “Prayer for Protection” came through change after change, not at all “I Am There,” when I felt that God spoke those words to me.
But what is the word of God? It is possible that no prayer Unity has ever printed has reached so many people as the “Prayer for Protection,” for not only has Unity printed it over and over, but almost every Unity church uses it to conclude its services. “I Am There,” it was carried to the moon.
On the very first flight to the moon, on Apollo 11, astronaut Col. Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin carried the Unity “Prayer for Protection” with him. He did not know me or Unity.It has appeared in hundreds of different publications that have no connection with Unity, and millions of people have carried it around on cards that fit into their pocketbooks, pockets, and billfolds. It has been translated into many languages. Sometimes it appears with me as the author. Often no author is given. Sometimes other people are named as the author.
It has been changed and changed again before it reached the form that it now has that best meets people's needs. This prayer is the product of much thought and concentration and of a mind that was willing to stay open to receive divine inspiration.
I think Unity's “Prayer for Protection” is as much God's word as “I Am There” is. Sometimes God speaks to us when we don't even know it is God.
I think God has many ways of speaking to us and not only in words that we hear with our ears. I think God speaks to our hearts and minds, and sometimes God's message has nothing to do with words. God is love and intelligence and life.
More than anything we say God is, or even imagine God is, God is the one universal Presence and Power and is seeking to express Truth and beauty and good through all of us and for all of us.
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:
Click the image to share this meme on !
- 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!”
