Our world is filled with events and situations that can cause great fear and anxiety. It’s easy to become overwhelmed and live imprisoned by fear. We are promised in God’s Word that he is faithful and will protect us (2 Thessalonians 3:3). God wants us to let go of fear and to live life to the fullest! (John 10:10) When you are overcome by worry, use these prayers for protection to remember who God is and the protection he has promised you.

1. Prayer for Personal Protection
Father, I come to You today, bowing in my heart, asking for protection from the evil one. Lord, we are assailed moment by moment with images on television, the internet, books and newspapers that leave us vulnerable to sin of every kind. Surround us with Your divine hedge of protection. Encompass us round about with Your strength and Your might. Let all who take refuge in You be glad, let them ever sing for joy. And may You shelter us, that those who love Your name may exult in You. For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O LORD, You surround him favor as with a shield. (Psalm 5:11-12)
Lord, I ask that You protect our minds. Father, the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace. (Romans 8:6) O God, set our minds on You. Let us not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our minds that we may prove what Your will is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2) Help us by the power of Your Spirit to think on whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything is worthy of praise, let our minds dwell on these things. (Philippians 4:8)
Strengthen us in the power of Your might, O God. Dress us in Your armor so that we can stand firm against the schemes of the devil. We know that our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.(Ephesians 6:10-12)
You are our keeper, O Lord, the shade on our right hand. Protect us from all evil and keep our soul. Guard our going out and our coming in. From this time and forever. In Jesus’ name, Amen. – by Lynn Cooke
2. Prayer for the Protection and Safety of Family
Lord, I pray Your emotional, physical, and spiritual protection over my kids (grandkids). Keep evil far from them, and help them to trust You as their refuge and strength. I pray You will guard their minds from harmful instruction, and grant them discernment to recognize truth. I pray You will make them strong and courageous in the presence of danger, recognizing that You have overcome and will set right all injustice and wrong one day. Help them to find rest in Your shadow, as they live in the spiritual shelter You provide for them. Let them know that the only safe place is in Jesus, and that their home on earth is only temporary. – Ryan Duncan, Culture Editor at Crosswalk.com
3. Prayer for Children’s Security
Lord, I pray that my kids (grandkids) will develop an eternal perspective and purpose, not an earthly one. Help them to see life–and every challenge–through Your eyes, eager and unafraid to share with others the good news of Jesus wherever they go. I pray that they will set their minds on things above, not just what’s going on here, and that they will be rooted and grounded in Your love. I pray they will come to understand the extent of Your own love for them–that it surpasses all the head knowledge they will acquire in school. I pray they will be filled up with You from morning ’til night. – Rebecca Barlow Jordan
4. “St. Patrick’s Breastplate” Protective Prayer:
Celtic monks used it to start their day.The hymn was several stanzas long, and the last two stanzas were especially memorable and moving:
Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.
I bind unto myself the Name,
The strong Name of the Trinity;
By invocation of the same.
The Three in One, and One in Three,
Of Whom all nature hath creation,
Eternal Father, Spirit, Word:
Praise to the Lord of my salvation,
Salvation is of Christ the Lord.
5. “Priestly Blessings” Prayer from Scripture:
Numbers 6:22-27 is known as the “Priestly Blessing” or sometimes the “Aaronic Benediction.” There are seven requests made in this prayer.
The LORD said to Moses, “Tell Aaron and his sons, ‘This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them: “’The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.”‘ “So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.”
1. The Lord bless you…
The word “bless” means to “provide favor or benefit.” Father, we pray that for our children. You are the Eternal God. Please place Your great kindness and advantage on those we love. May they be approved and favored by You.
2. and keep you…
The Hebrew word “keep” means to “watch, guard, defend.” This is a prayer for protection. Father, my children are not perfect. They are going to make mistakes. But please watch over them and guard them again mistakes of youth that are unalterable. Please defend them against temptation. Protect them against Satan who desires to devour them.
3. the LORD make his face shine upon you…
This is a request for God’s presence.Father, as a parent I know that I can’t be with my children all the time, but You can. Just like they feel the warmth of the sun shining on them, please allow them to experience Your presence. Thank You for being with them wherever they go.
4. and be gracious to you…
Grace is God’s undeserved favor. He gives us what we don’t deserve. Father, thank You for Your gift of grace. I pray that gift to be poured out on my children. Following that great gift of salvation, please show them your kindness and love in all the endeavors of their lives.
5. the Lord turn his face toward you…
Here is a request for God’s fellowship.Father, thank You, that because of their trust in Jesus, the Holy Spirit lives in my children. Please walk with them in a powerful way. Enable them to submit to the Spirit’s control day by day and moment by moment.
6. and give you peace.
The Hebrew word for peace used here is “shalom.” It means “completeness, wholeness, and contentment.” Lord, please calm my children’s fears; soothe their anxious souls. Keep them complete and whole in their thinking, emotions, desires, and actions.
7. So they will put my name on ___________ (the name of your child/children).
This is a request of identification. Lord, please place Your holy mark on my children. Set them apart to be used by You. I love them but You love them more. You love them with an everlasting love. May they represent You well on their earthly journey. And when their journey is completed, welcome them home to live forever with You.

A PRAYER FOR PROTECTION (To be prayed before ministry)
In the name of Jesus Christ and by the power of his Cross and his Blood, we bind up the power of any evil spirits and command them not to block our prayers. We bind up the powers of earth, air, water, fire, the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.
We break any curses, hexes or spells sent against us and declare them null and void. We break the assignments of any spirits sent against us and send them to Jesus to deal with them as he will. Lord, we ask you to bless our enemies by sending your Holy Spirit to lead them to repentance and conversion.
Furthermore, we bind all interaction and communication in the world of evil spirits as it affects us and our ministry.
We ask for the protection of the shed blood of Jesus Christ over _______ .
Thank you, Lord, for your protection and send your anqels, especially St. Michael, the Archangel to help us in the battle. We ask you to guide us in our prayers: share with us your Spirit’s power and compassion. Amen.

PRAYER TO BE SET FREE (To be prayed following ministry)
Lord Jesus, thank you for sharing with us your wonderful ministry of healing and deliverance. Thank you for the healings we have seen and experienced today.
We realize that the sickness and evil we encounter is more than our humanity can bear, so cleanse us of any sadness, negativity or despair that we may have picked up. If our ministry has tempted us to anger, impatience or lust, cleanse us of those temptations and replace them with love, joy and peace.
If any evil spirits have attached themselves to us or oppressed us in any way, we command you, spirits of earth, air, fire, water, the netherworld or the satanic forces of nature, to depart – now – and go straight to Jesus Christ for him to deal with you as he will.
Come Holy Spirit: renew us — fill us anew with your power, your life and your joy. Strengthen us where we have felt weak and clothe us with your light. Fill us with life. Lord Jesus, please send your holy angels to minister to us and our families-guard us and protect us from all sickness, harm and accidents. (Give-us a safe trip home.)
We praise you now and forever, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and we ask these things in Jesus’ Holy Name that he may be glorified. Amen
(Prayers by Dr. Francis MacNutt)

The Light of God
The light of God surrounds us,
The love of God enfolds us,
The power of God protects us,
The presence of God watches over us,
Wherever we are, God is,
And where God is, all is well.
St. Matthew, St. Mark, St. Luke, St. John,
Like unto the prophet Jonas, as a type of Christ,
Who was guarded for three days and
Three nights in the belly of a whale,
Thus shall the Almighty God,
As a Father, guard and protect me from all evil.
Grant me Protection
Grant, O Lord, Thy protection
And in protection, strength
And in strength, understanding
And in understanding, knowledge
And in knowledge, the knowledge of justice
And in the knowledge of justice, the love of it
And in the love of it, the love of all existences
And in that love, the love of spirit and all creation.
For Safe Travel
God’s Angels guard and keep you
All the way that you must travel
Till earth’s days are past
When blossoms fade and
Time is fleeting fast
In times of purest joy
Or pain and fear
God’s Angels guard
And keep you safe.
Guard Over Me
Jesus, I will arise; Jesus do thou accompany me;
Jesus, do thou lock my heart into thine, And let my body and my soul
Be commended unto thee.
The Lord is crucified.
May God guard and protect my senses
So that misfortunes may not overcome me.
In the name of God the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost.
Learn about the Hedge of Protection Prayer.
Protection from Wrongdoing
You thieves, I implore you to be obedient like Jesus Christ,
Who obeyed his heavenly Father unto the cross,
And to stand without moving out of my sight,
In the name of the Trinity.
I command you by the power of God
And the incarnation of Jesus Christ
Not to move out of my sight, like Jesus Christ
Stood on Jordan’s stormy banks to be baptized by John.
And furthermore, I implore you, horse and rider,
To stand still and not to move out of my sight,
Like Jesus Christ did stand when he was about
To be nailed to the cross to release the
Fathers of the church from the bonds of hell.
Thieves, I bind you with the same bonds with which Jesus
Our Lord has bound hell; and thus ye shall be bound;
And the same Words that bind you shall also release you.
Protection from Thieves
God be with you, brethren; stop, ye thieves,
Robbers, murderers, horsemen and soldiers,
In all humility, for we have tasted
The rosy blood of Jesus.
Your rifles and guns will be stopped up with the
Holy blood of Jesus; and all swords and arms are made harmless
By the five holy wounds of Jesus.
There are three roses upon the heart of God;
The first is beneficent,
The other is omnipotent,
The third is his holy will.
You thieves must therefore stand under it,
Standing still as long as I will.
In the name of God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
You are commanded and made to stop!
Like unto the cup and the wine, and the holy supper,
which our dear Lord Jesus Christ gave unto his dear disciples
on Maunday Thursday, may the Lord Jesus guard me in daytime,
and at night, that:
No dog may bite me,
No wild beast tear me to pieces,
No tree fall upon me,
No water rise against me,
No firearms injure me,
No weapons, no steel, no iron cut me,
No fire burn me, No false sentence fall upon me,
No false tongue injure me,
No rogue enrage me, and that no fiends, no witchcraft
Or enchantment can harm me. Amen.
Protect my Day
Blessed be my protection when I go out during day or night,
That thou mayest not let any of my enemies, or thieves, approach me,
If they do not intend to bring me what was intended from your Holy Altar.
Because God the Lord Jesus Christ is ascended into Heaven in his living Body,
And so shall my body and wellbeing be protected on this journey.
O Lord, bless me and watch over me day and night.
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Protect my Journey
In the name of God I go on this journey.
May God the Father be with me,
God the Son protect me, and
God the Holy Ghost be by my side.
Whoever is stronger than these three persons
May approach my body and my life; yet
Whoso is not stronger than these three
Would much better let me be!
Let No Evil Befall Us
O God, You are the preserver of men, and the keeper of
our lives. We commit ourselves to Your perfect care on the
journey that awaits us. We pray for a safe and auspicious
Give Your angels charge over us to keep us in all
our ways. Let no evil befall us, nor any harm come to our
dwelling that we leave behind. Although we are uncertain
of what the days may bring, may we be prepared for any event
or delay, and greet such with patience and understanding.
Bless us O Lord, that we may complete our journey safely
and successfully under Your ever watchful care.
Be with Me Christ
The cross of Christ be with me;
The cross of Christ overcomes all water and every fire;
The cross of Christ overcomes all weapons;
The cross of Christ is a perfect sign and blessing to my soul.
May Christ be with me and my body during all my life
At day and at night. Now I pray, I , pray God the Father
For the soul’s sake, and I pray God the Son for the Father’s sake,
And I pray God the Holy Ghost for the Father’s and Son’s sake,
And I pray God the Holy Ghost for the for the Father’s and the Son’s sake,
That the holy corpse of God may bless me against all evil things, words and works.
The Cross of Christ
The cross of Christ open unto me future bliss;
The cross of Christ be with me, above me, before me,
Behind me, beneath me, aside of me and
Everywhere, and before all my enemies,
Visible and invisible; these all flee from me
As soon as they but know or hear.
Enoch and Elias, the two prophets, were never
Imprisoned, nor bound, nor beaten and came
Never out of their power; thus no one of my enemies
Must be able to injure or attack me in my body
Or my life, in the name of God the Father, the Son,
And the Holy Ghost. Amen!
Protection from Heaven
The blessing which came from heaven,
From God the Father, when the true living Son was born,
Be with me at all times;
The blessing which God spoke over the whole human race,
Be with me always.
The holy cross of God, as long and as broad
As the one upon which God suffered
His blessed, bitter tortures, bless me today and forever.
The three holy nails which were driven through
The holy hands and feet of Jesus Christ
Shall bless me today and forever.
The bitter crown of thorns which was forced upon
The holy head of Christ, shall bless me today and forever.
The spear by which the holy side of Jesus was opened,
Shall bless me today and forever.
The rosy blood protect me from all my enemies,
And from everything which night be injurious to my body
Or soul, or my worldly goods.
Bless me, oh ye five holy wounds, in order that all my enemies
May be driven away and bound,
While God has encompassed all Christendom.
In this shall assist me God the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
Amen. Thus must I, , be blessed as well and as valid
As the cup and the wine, and the true, living bread which
Jesus gave his disciples on the evening of Maunday Thursday.
All those that hate you must be silent before me;
Their hearts are dead in regard to me; and their tongues are
Mute, so that they are not at all able to inflict the least injury
Upon me, or my house, or my premises:
And likewise, all those who intend attacking and wounding me
With their arms and weapons shall be defenseless,
Weak and conquered before me.
In this shall assist me the holy power of God, which can make all arms or
weapons of no avail. All this in the name of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. Amen.
The Watchful Eye of The Lord
A watchful eye is caring for me. I am protected, safe, and free.
He is here watching, I am happy to be, He is here watching, watching over me.
I’ve been a lost lamb, just caring for me. I thought I had no one caring for me.
I was so lonely, tired and worn, but I looked around and this thought was born.
He is here watching, watching over me. Look little lamb, look around and see.
Look little lamb, He said , I am watching over thee. Drink from the water so pure and so clean.
Taste of the water, and then you will see. Open your eyes now, you are all clean.
See little lamb, you are white and all new. See little lamb, I will watch over you.
How kind dear sir, to watch over me. I am all white and clean and all new. You are so kind sir,
to help me dear sir.
Thank you for watching, watching over me. I feel protected, safe, and free.
For the Lord He is watching, He is watching over me. I stayed near his feet,
I was helpless and small, but he watched over me, that I should not fall.
Come little lamb, follow me to the water. You can drink from it there. I will help you not falter.
He knew that my knees were all tired and sore, from falling and falling, again on the floor.
Come little lamb, you can try it again. I know that you’re weak, but I’ll help you to stand.
You speak so kindly, I said to the man. You speak so kindly, You’ll help me to stand.
I took a little drink, where he showed me the water, and I started to cry,
my tears rolled down in the water.
Why are you crying, He said to me then? I have been crying, again, and again.
Oh Master can you help me? I have lost a hold, of my children over yonder, who are a part of my fold.
Can you call them dear Master. To see if they’ll come To your water dear Master,
Please see if they’ll come.
You hold me in safety, with comfort and care. You speak to me gently, I have nothing to fear.
You are so kind dear Master. I am happy with thee. Even though I falter, You are still with me.
I am a little lamb, all torn and weak, But I will be happy to sit at your feet.
