Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

a prayer for protection


We come into your presence today, 
    at your feet and in your great shadow
We cry out,
    “God, you’re our refuge.
           We trust you and you keep us safe!”
We know that you rescue us from hidden traps,
        and shield us from deadly hazards.
Your outstretched arms protect —
         under them we are perfectly safe;
         your arms fend off all harm.
We fear nothing—
   not creatures that prowl through the darkness,
       not disaster that comes at high noon.
Even though others succumb all around,
   no harm will ever come to us

Yes, because God’s our refuge,
      Evil can’t get close to us,
harm can’t get through the door.
   He ordered his angels
to guard us at all times.
If we stumble, he will catch us.
 If we hold on to him for dear life,
      He will keep us from all harm.
He will give the best of care
      to those who know and trust him.
Call out to him and he’ll answer, be at our side in bad times;
       He'll rescue us.


(Adapted from Psalm 91)
