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.

Which of the mosteffective to protect against evil forces? Prayer helps believers, conspiracy – atheists, self-hypnosis and analysis – realists. There are also amulets and amulets, rituals and healthy skepticism. Prayer for defending against evil spirits, however, causes more confidence in one who is really afraid. Why? How and when to read it? Let’s understand.
What is prayer for protection from evil spirits?
Believers are taught from a small age that people are childrenThe Lord. By the way, atheists usually deny this. But we’ll get to them later. We are small creatures before a great and noble God. He alone has the power to protect a person or punish. This truth should be learned, as an axiom, without proof. The Lord is the father, he punishes and rewards. And to whom does the child flee when he is offended? This is inherent in the subconscious – protection should be sought from parents. So do believers, turn to the Lord for protection from evil spirits. Prayer is read at the moment of the threat, no matter whether it is real or imagined. It must be understood, this is not a conspiracy, releasing any magic powers at will. The appeal to the Almighty is in this case the formation of the projection of his power in his soul. If it’s easier: a person feels that he is not alone, next is someone who is much stronger and wiser, able to cope with an unknown danger. The prayer of protection against evil spirit to the Lord is a request and affirmation at the same time. Man confirms her words with faithfulness to the commandments of Jesus, rejects the art of the devil.
What is meant by the unclean force
We are not taught theology now, knowledge in thispeople get more often from TV programs, films and literature, far from being ecclesiastical. Therefore, there is a certain confusion in the question of the devil. This leads to reproduction, if one can express fears and phobias. Behind every corner, the enemies are afraid. And I want to build a fortress to protect against evil forces. Prayer, many are sure of that, is too weak a weapon. In fact, everything is easier if you understand how the world works. Under the devil’s forces understand what we are accustomed to consider a temptation. It really lurks everywhere. A neighbor has a new car – he wants himself too; a colleague was promoted – why I was circumvented and so on. These are just the simplest examples. And in his soul a man will find many more sophisticated insects that do not give joy to what is. You ask: “But what about corruption and evil eye, are they really only a figment of imagination?” No. Negative programs and energies do exist, but they do not penetrate into a pure soul. To witches the witch, for example, you need to have similar feelings in your heart. Envy does not produce joy. Let’s put it another way: the devil lurks in the soul of a person, it should be protected from him. And the outside world is only a reflection of the inner. We attract those events in which we believe.
When to turn to prayer?
The Lord is always there, He is not sleepingChad their. That’s all you really need to remember. Sometimes a strange question can be heard when a prayer for protection against an evil spirit is being discussed: “On which days should it be read to help?” Think yourself, do you get the rules of the devil’s forces? The prayer is intended for a person to feel, confirm for himself a connection with the Lord. It is up to him to decide when to do it. But in fact, refer to the Almighty at any time when anxiety in the soul is only born. Actually, at least round the clock. To do this, you do not need to go to the temple or to conduct special rites Talking with the Lord is not witchcraft, but the natural need of a believer. And if he has a problem, who else will help? Probably in this question lies a misunderstanding of what God is. It is not some kind of force that exists separately from the individual. We are all parts of the world, which was created by our Father. And this means that each person, in fact, is His component, like fingers on a hand. They themselves do not exist, only together with the palm, as they are connected with it by blood vessels and other tissues. So it is impossible to separate a person from the Lord. Only he himself can shut himself off in his thoughts, imagine that such a union does not exist.
Prayer for protection against evil spirits
“Lord Jesus Christ, hallowed be your name, yesThy kingdom shall come … ” Let’s not quote here words known to everyone. Remember the legend of the tax collector and the Pharisee? Jesus said you should not give meaning to words. You need to open the soul of heavenly father. To protect against evil forces, prayer must be sincere, go from the heart. And what exactly do you say – is it important when the basis is a sense of trust in the Almighty? When a person assures himself that a special text from an ancient book or recommended by a church is more important, he shows pride. To be more precise: this poor fellow thus says to the Lord: “I know better what to do!”. Is it not pride? Believers accept the will of the Almighty, whatever it is, wishing only to unite with Him, to be protected. And for this all the words are not needed. They are a tool for the imperfect human brain, which makes it possible to feel oneness with the Lord.
So what to say?
It would be nice to sit in silence, a little silence, candlesignite and think. You know, we have so much extra information in our heads that it is no wonder that we get confused. And you need to figure out that you are evil forces or sorcery. Believe me, everyone understands his own. Some are afraid of sorcerers, others are ruin, others are rivals and so on. This is the superficial, external side of the question. One should be afraid of losing the connection with the Heavenly Father, a time when there is no hope in his soul for His kindness and support. That is what prayer is for. When a person reads her, he calms down, realizes the miserable nature of his own problems in front of the greatness of the creator of the world. That is why a prayer is needed. To protect against evil spirits, the prayer “From sorcery” is used most often. In any case, it is recommended by priests. Its other name is “Psalm 90”. The text is, of course, long, but it is not necessary to learn it by heart. Read from the sheet when the need comes. Naturally, the prayer book is desirable to have at home.
How to protect yourself?
The best strategy, as is customary todayspeak, is the prevention of trouble. Why wait for evil spirits to appear in your life? Agree, there is no special rationality. Demons come to the one who lets them into his soul or invites them. Therefore, it is necessary to strive for purity and light constantly, continuously. Begin any day with a prayer, go to sleep with it. Here you have a tactic and defense strategy. “Our Father” all believers know by heart. It happens that even in a terrible dream they remember and read. Learn short text and speak as you wake up. Very quickly it will become a habit. Then the evil spirit is not terrible. After all, your trust in the Lord will be constantly strengthened. And this is the main protection. If you constantly feel the presence of the Heavenly Father, this is what the black entities see. They do not come close.
How to protect loved ones?
It is much more difficult. Indeed, the relationship with the Lord is a personal matter. But the mother can and should protect her child from evil. For this, he should be taught prayer. But not just to make words memorize and pronounce, but to give an understanding of what the Lord is for man. A child should come to Him intelligently, understanding what he is doing. But to pray for loved ones, of course, is not prohibited. The clergy recommend going to church with the whole family. A temple is a community of souls who turn to the Lord together. Protection of relatives is to maintain the unity of people with God, not to interrupt him. Accompany your loved ones from the house of prayer, ask the Lord to support them, to protect them from temptation. Not sure which words to pronounce? Let’s give a small text.
Prayer for the protection of relatives
Lord Jesus! Forgive your sinful servants (names). Bless and help to cope with the temptations of the world. Protect from sorcery and witchcraft. Strengthen, O Lord, the souls of His servants (names) from the temptations of satanic, from the machinations of demons, from the tricks of men. Let their works be dedicated to you, they dream of the Kingdom of Heaven. The enemy – let Satan back down, will not receive power over the souls. Lord, help me, save the soul in the light. Amen!
Prayer for the protection of the home from evil spirits
When the house is broken, nothing specialno need to invent. Ask the Heavenly Father to judge and help restore peace. Any prayer is suitable for this. Protecting the house from evil spirits is primarily the return of all relatives to the Temple of the Soul. Or, to put it another way, it is necessary to work to restore the feeling of unity. It is advisable to pray together. After all, harmony consists of all the elements of a whole. And in order to organize such a small event, each family member must trust the Father in Heaven. We have come again to the very beginning. We need faith, only then prayer. And if there is this invisible connection with the Lord, then a solution will come. In the meantime, they didn’t bring her up in themselves, read psalm 90 in voice. Just think about the text, work the soul. Then the scum neither in the house, nor on work, nor in the heart will never climb. You know, it is still important to give up fear. Do not be afraid of the devil, he is weaker than the one who is constantly there, supports and preserves!
