Psalm 91: A Prayer of Protection

God wants to protect His peopIe in the midst of the chaos of our day. Psalm 91 is a confession, an assertion of His desire and of His love and protection for us. I always pray this to the Lord as a statement and confession of my faith in His word. You can too! He will keep us!

“I dwell in the secret place of the Most High and abide under the shadow of the Almighty

“I shall say of the Lord, You are my refuge and my fortress, my God, in You do I trust.

“Surely You shall deliver me from the snare of the fowler and from the noisome pestilence.

“You shall cover me with Your feathers and under Your wings do I find refuge.

“I 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 shall fall at my side and ten thousand at my right hand, but it shall not come near me.

“Only with my eyes will I behold and see the reward of the wicked.

“Because I have made You, even the Most High, my habitation, there shall no evil befall me,

“Neither shall any plague come near my dwelling.

“For You shall give your angels charge over me to keep me in all my ways.

“They shall bear me up in their hands, lest I dash my foot against a stone.

“I shall tread upon the lion and the adder, the young lion and dragon shall I trample underfoot.

“Because I have set my love upon You, therefore You shall deliver me.

“You have set me on high, because I have known Your name.

“I shall call upon You and You will answer me.

“You will be with me in trouble, you will deliver me and honor me.

“With long life will You satisfy me and show me Your salvation.”
