Protection From Evil
Romans 8:37-39 … we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
2 Timothy 1:7; Psalm 91:1-16; Psalm 27:1
O Lord, as we walk in the midst of troubled times, shield, protect and strengthen the Body of Christ throughout the world from the evil one. Let our faith arise even in the midst of all the turmoil! For You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.…You, promise to never leave us nor forsake us. Therefore, when darkness surrounds us, let us boldly confess “The Lord is My Helper; whom shall I fear?” Lord we look to You…A Strong Tower of Refuge, Our Rock; Our Shield, and the Horn of our Salvation, Our Savior…Our Deliverer…You are the Resurrection of Life! You are our Hiding Place; You preserve us from trouble; and surround us with songs of deliverance. Remind us Lord that we as humans are no match for the enemy…our help must come from the Lord! Therefore, when darkness surrounds us, let us be quick to call upon the name of the Lord…Our Defender…Our protection…Our Faithful God, in whom we trust!
May the Body of Christ hear Your call to prepare for battle…To arise to their rightful place with a dynamic holy boldness! May we stand firm on the Holy Word as we face adversity and not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday…!! O God empower your people to be strong in the Lord, and fully trust Your Holy Word…For you have provided the weapons to demolish strongholds through Your word and the spirit-empowered prayer! Remind us to daily put on the whole armor of God, that we may be able to stand against the devil’s schemes…for we know we wrestle not against flesh and blood,….Therefore, prompt us to put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, we may be able to stand our ground, praying for one another!
Thank you for your mighty protection, Lord…For who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written, “…We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us…nothing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Lord may our Brothers and Sisters in Christ seek you with all their hearts and be filled to overflowing with the Light of Your Presence!! Help us NOT be afraid to love and encourage others, even in the midst of dark times.
Bless the Lord O my soul…. For You never sleep nor slumber… You are constantly watching and caring for Your people! — Keeping us from all harm— You will forever keep guard over our lives…our coming and going, both now and forevermore. With God as our Defender…. who can be against us?
*And now, Lord, I submit areas of my life to You that cause me fear and anxiety, and I repent for entertaining them. I confess them as faithlessness. They are ____________. You have given me Your Word to overcome ALL the power of the evil one, even in my own mind. Today, I lay my fears at Your throne of grace. Help me to walk free from these and leave them with You. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and Faith to walk boldly and in victory over ALL these things. In Jesus Name! Amen!
