Prayer for Protection of the Almighty Father
Dear Heavenly Father,
I offer you these words of protection, Lord God, that you may allow me to hide beneath your wings and give me protection from evil things. Obscure me from different demonic forces, dear Father, for I know that these things prevent me from being with you in the safety of eternal life. Allow me not to lean on my own understanding, for I know that I am in the safety of your presence. Grant me the discernment to recognize the truth of your mighty name- I am nothing in this world without thy protection. Hear my prayers, Lord.
In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Through our powerful prayers for protection as one family today, we ask your mighty hand that you show your mercy for your children and help us through this lifelong journey. We also ask that you protect us from the great dangers that lie ahead of us. We glorify your name, Oh Lord, and offer our words and actions in the name of our Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Prayer for Security and Joy
Despite the spiritual attacks happening around me, I find the security and the purest joy that I need in your presence. I am not worthy of your precious blood but I know that you are the sovereign God, and only you can take all the sins of this world. The salvation you have given mankind through your son Jesus Christ reminds me that you are the shield of peace and hope and in the Most High, your dwelling is insurmountable. In Jesus Christ’s name, I pray.

Guard my heart that I may find peace amidst the chaos happening around me every day. I offer these prayers for protection to you; Be my refuge and let me rest in your arms, Father God.
Prayer to Protect Your Home
Bless Our home, O Christ, that may its walls can withstand any threats. Let your love strengthen our sanctuary after a long day’s work. We kneel together before you to ask for undying love & grace and never-ending blessing. These prayers we offer in the name of the almighty Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Prayer for Protection and Strength
Amidst these trying times filled with danger and temptations, help us stand upright in every decision that we make. Give us such strength that we may set free all of our inhibitions and cast out all the works of the evil one. Please provide us the spiritual shelter we need, for we know that we can find refuge and regain our lost strength in you, our eternal Father. Lord God, take hold of our individual lives and carry us through every temptation that comes our way; In Jesus’ name.

Prayer Against Fear
I fear the works of the evil. Grant my prayers for protection and use your power to help my heavy mind and heart. Fill me with your words as I pray and keep me reminded that you are in control of this ship, O God.
Prayer Against Sinful Acts
Lord Jesus Christ,
We ask for your divine protection that you may shield us from every trouble from all the sinful acts of our brothers and sisters. Similarly, help me to remain faithful and not do anything that may cause harm to others. Send your Holy Spirit to help us stand firm in our aspirations to live a christ-like life. Guide us, as well as my brothers and sisters, away from corrupt spiritual forces. Help us in this spiritual warfare, that we may do good to our peers as what you have directed us to do. These we ask in Christ Jesus’ name.
Prayer to Protect The Workplace
I seek your divine help at my workplace from morning til’ night. Grant my prayers, bestow us the protection that we need, mentally, emotionally, and physically. Help us strengthen our faith and instill in us the truth that consequences follow after every foolish action we make towards our work, and to our colleagues. Remind us not to instill fear in our coworkers. Similarly, guard our minds and heart against individuals that seek to harm us and put us in danger or sway our convictions in life. Grant us protection, Lord, in Jesus’ name I pray.
Prayer to Protect Marriages
Cast out all the threats that go against my marriage. Guide this family, Lord, that we may be able to avoid this deadly pestilence that seeks to destroy us. Lift our spirit, Lord, and cover us with your own love. Finally, remind us to have the motivation to please you as our heavenly king and not an earthly one.
Prayer to Protect Children
May the children of the next generation develop a christ-centered eternal perspective as they continue to become effective leaders of this world. Allow them to see the things in this world through your vision and do not let them be corrupted with the influences of evil. Let them run free in green pastures and let them realize that their earthly dwelling is temporary and the only safe place where they can find rest and refuge is in your goodness and mercy. Deliver them from sins, guard them against harmful instruction, and embrace them with your loving hands, for Jesus Christ’s sake.
Prayer for Protection Against Temptations
For our sake and for our salvation, you died on the Cross. Guide and guard our hearts, that we may not give in to any temptations and disregard all your sacrifices in vain. Nourish our spirit, that we may not go astray and fall into the pits of the true spiritual enemy. I accept your heavenly aid and acknowledge that there is no other God besides you.
Prayer for the Anxious
Be our source of peace when our circumstances become very hard. Remind us that the anxiety and fear that we feel are caused by the evil works of Satan and your power is far more superior compared to anyone here on earth.
As I read your words, I pray that you enlighten me so that I will no longer falter and bend before the evil. Help me overcome every struggle I face in my life. Protect me from any thoughts that stop me from doing the things that bring glory to your name. Allow Christ, your right hand, to show me the path obscured by inhibitions that prevent me from taking the leap of faith. All these I ask, in the name of Christ your son.
Prayer for Protection Before Going to Sleep
I pray that as I lay down my head to rest, be the refuge of my soul. Protect me from evil entities and let me breathe your almighty power as I surrender you my whole day, Lord. Let me see the heavenly places in my dreams, that I may be reminded of the eternal life I am to claim when judgment day arrives. All these I ask, In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
As Christians, we need to be reminded that our ultimate protector is our Lord Jesus Christ. Let us no longer lean on our individual understanding and begin asking for protection from the ones up above; the Alpha and the Omega.
