I Thank You
To the true and living God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in union forever, I bless you! I thank you for the cross, where your Son, Jesus Christ has disarmed principalities and power, once and forever!
He crashed down his foot so hard, that he not only crushed the head of the serpent, but bruised his heel with the excessive force.
I thank you Lord, that by the cross of Jesus Christ, I have been made free from all curses, witchcraft and demonic power. Jesus Christ became the curse, for me, so that I cannot be cursed! And so I give this day to you Lord, In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
We thank you for the Cross, where Jesus disarmed principalities and power, once and forever! Click To Tweet
Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. And nothing shall by any means hurt you.

A Prayer for Protection
By James MacDonald
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. – 1 Corinthians 13:6–7
Love protects. Real, biblical love always protects others. When we abandon protecting love, our relationships unravel. The Apostle John reminds us of that with a graphic illustration: “For this is the message that you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. We should not be like Cain, who was of the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own deeds were evil and his brother’s righteous” (1 John 3:11–12, ESV).
Remember Cain? He was the first child born on Earth, the firstborn son of Adam and Eve. But he’s notorious for murdering his brother, Abel. In fact, the word translated murdered (or slew) literally means cut his throat. Cain brutally killed his younger brother.
Why? Why do people hurt each other? Why did Cain hurt innocent Abel? John tells us clearly. “And why did he murder him? Because his own deeds were evil and his brother’s righteous” (1 John 3:12). Never underestimate the conflict that rages in the heart of a person who is in the process of rejecting God. Never underestimate the tension that person feels between your life and his. “Do not be surprised, brothers, that the world hates you” (1 John 3:13). In this context, the word world refers to the people you know: your neighbors, coworkers, friends, and family members who have not received Christ and are not walking in Him—and who feel the dissonance between your life and theirs.
If you want God’s protection on your family, choose love instead of hate. Turn the other cheek (Matthew 5:39). Go the second mile (Matthew 5:41). Avoid the life of Cain. Choose instead the way of love, and experience God’s protection over your relationships.
Father God, open my eyes to see the ways I’m like Cain. What conflicts am I allowing to brew in my family? What anger is bubbling into murderous rage in my relationships? Thank You for the clarity to see how hatred kills relationships. I choose instead the way of love. Love protects. Help me to protect those I love by loving them. Your way is always best, Father. I pray in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Why We Need Prayer for Protection?
A short prayer for protection can be used in many circumstances for protection against evil, harm, enemies, for travel mercies, natural disasters, health and medical situations, child births, and spiritual warfare just to name a few. They can also take the form of physical protection as well as emotional and spiritual.
At the start I mentioned that a prayer of protection is often over-looked by Christians, especially newborn Christians who are just beginning to explore their faith. So if this describes you, let me first share how much God loves you and wants a very close relationship with you.
A prayer of protection can be used for yourself or others
Obviously being the God that stitched you together in your Mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13). He knows you far better than anyone, but He wants more than a just physical knowledge of your existence. He wants you to freely share all of your life with Him, He wants you to ask him for your hearts desires, to share your needs and concerns with Him, to rely and trust in Him for all things.
A short prayer of protection can be used for yourself or others, often people pray for family and friends when they travel long distances, have medical conditions, are involved in an accident, natural disaster or other tragedy. You can (and should) even pray for your country, it’s military and their leaders for protection.
Always remember, use a short prayer for protection at any time, and if you feel an instinct or small voice inside telling you to pray… then stop what you are doing and pray. The Holy Spirit of God exists within you to guide you and help in times of trouble. Listen to the spirit and pray. Never stop praying.
