Reasons Why NOT to FEAR (Part 5) — Prayers of Protection!

by Rick

Today I will continue my current series entitled, REASONS WHY NOT TO FEAR!  Reason #5: Our God is a Protector!  This is a major reason why we should not fear.  Our God is more than capable of protecting us.  

I am going to do something a little different today.  I will share the 91st Psalm with you. After that, instead of giving you my normal points.  I will share two prayers you can pray in this season. One is a declaration and one is a more traditional prayer.

(Psalm 91 Easy to Read Version)

1  You can go to God Most High to hide. You can go to God All-Powerful for protection.

2  I say to the Lord, “You are my place of safety, my fortress. My God, I trust in you.”

3  God will save you from hidden dangers and from deadly diseases.

4  You can go to him for protection.  He will cover you like a bird spreading its wings over its babies.  You can trust him to surround and protect you like a shield.

5  You will have nothing to fear at night and no need to be afraid of enemy arrows during the day.

6  You will have no fear of diseases that come in the dark or terrible suffering that comes at noon.

7  A thousand people may fall dead at your side or ten thousand right beside you, but nothing bad will happen to you!

8  All you will have to do is watch, and you will see that the wicked are punished.

9  You trust in the Lord for protection. You have made God Most High your place of safety. 

10  So nothing bad will happen to you.  No diseases will come near your home.

11  He will command his angels to protect you wherever you go.

12  Their hands will catch you so that you will not hit your foot on a rock.

13  You will have power to trample on lions and poisonous snakes.

14  The Lord says, “If someone trusts me, I will save them.  I will protect my followers who call to me for help.

15  When my followers call to me, I will answer them.  I will be with them when they are in trouble. I will rescue them and honor them.

16  I will give my followers a long life and show them my power to save.”

Please meditate and medicate on this Psalm and other scriptures of protection in this season.  What you give your attention to is critically important.

So what does this mean for you today?  It means that God has placed you on this planet and He has placed His Spirit inside of you.  This makes you a human conduit of the divine. You are connected to both heaven and earth at the same time.  God is looking for you to bring both realms together through the vehicle of prayer. Prayer is necessary. Let’s pray today.

Declaration of Faith for a Hedge of Protection Over You and Your Household!

You cover me like a bird spreading its wings over its babies.  Your faithfulness is like a shield or a city wall (Ps 91:4).

Father, You have promised to satisfy me with a long life.  As I live this life, You continually show me Your saving power. (Ps 91:16). 

As for me and my household, we serve You Father.  We have made our choice. You are our Lord. You are our God.  We call upon no other deity. We look to no other name. We declare that Jesus Christ is Lord over this house.  Therefore, our Lord is our defense! (Joshua 24:15).

Lord, be it unto me, according to Your Word and my declaration of faith.  In Jesus’ name. Amen. 

Prayer For Businesses in this Season

Father, I lift up my business to You in this moment.  I was led by Your Spirit to start the business and I use the resources You provide through it to advance Your Kingdom plans and purposes on this planet.  Therefore, I ask You to favor this business in this season, to cause us to increase, even in the midst of panic and fear. I am not afraid. I am not moved by what is going on around me.  May the peace I have in my heart permeate throughout every aspect of the business and also into the hearts of our employees. I pray a hedge of protection around them, their children, and their children’s children.  I declare that COVID-19 has no power over us. You give, and I give, angels charge over them, to keep them in all their ways. I pray for our employees to be physically healthy and strong, mentally focused and positive, psychologically and emotionally stable, and supernaturally at peace.  I am asking You Father to use this business as a symbol of light in the midst of darkness. May new contracts come our way, may the contracts we already have increase, may our employees never miss a paycheck, and may our performance be pleasing Your sight. We are committed to doing all we do spirit of excellence because what we do, we do for YOU!!  I pray this by faith. In Jesus’ name. Amen!

This is Today’s Word.  Apply it and prosper!
