Home Prayer of the Day Three powerful prayers to seek God’s protection and safekeeping

Three powerful prayers to seek God’s protection and safekeeping

Whenever you feel unsafe, use these prayers to seek protection from God.

With the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, our world is experiencing one of its darkest days. Series of unfortunate events are unfolding every day, and it’s causing great trouble for some of us. In times like these, It’s easy to become anxious and imprisoned by fear.  (READ: Heart Evangelista on her depression, anxiety: ‘I battled for quite some time’)

But, ‘We are promised in God’s Word that he is faithful and will protect us’ (2 Thessalonians 3:3) and ‘God wants us to let go of fear and to live life to the fullest!’ (John 10:10). 

When you feel unsafe, use these prayers to ask for protection from God.

Prayer amid uncertainty

Lord, I am feeling uncertain about what I’m facing. Please guide me and help me to cope with what is unfolding, Please also grant me the peace that only you can give. Amid my worries, please come alongside me and sustain me. I know that I can put my trust in you. Please grant me reminders along the way, so that I do not become overtaken by the unknown. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

 Prayer for those facing difficult situations

Lord, I am scared. I pray for Your protection and peace. I also pray for your supernatural intervention. I know you have the power to [stop/prevent the crisis, ease the burden of the crisis]. Please act in accordance with your will. I ask that you protect my family, me and my community. I ask for Your love and healing to be poured out. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

Prayer for protection for people suffering in difficult situations

Lord, please be with [insert person, group or community]. Please bless and guide them as they navigate through this difficult time. Help them to see your face amid the challenges and troubles — and please sustain them. I pray for your wisdom and for Your love to overcome everyone facing this challenge. In the name of your son Jesus I pray, amen.
