A prayer for protection inspired by Psalm 23:
You are our loving Shepherd, and we come before You seeking Your protection and guidance. We find comfort in the words of Psalm 23, knowing that You are our provider, our protector, and our companion. We trust in Your unfailing love and care.
Lord, we acknowledge that we are vulnerable and face various challenges in our lives. We ask that You lead us to green pastures and quiet waters, where we can find rest and restoration. Refresh our souls, O Lord, and grant us the peace that surpasses all understanding.
In times of darkness and uncertainty, help us to remember that we need not fear, for You are with us. Your presence brings comfort and reassurance. We pray that You would equip us with Your rod and staff to guide and protect us along the right paths. Give us the strength to walk through the valleys, knowing that Your light will shine upon us, dispelling all fear and evil.
As we face opposition and enemies, we trust in Your divine provision and protection. Prepare a table before us, Lord, where we can find nourishment and sustenance in the midst of adversity. Anoint our heads with the oil of Your blessings and overflowing grace. May Your goodness and love follow us all the days of our lives.
We commit ourselves to dwell in Your presence, Father, forever. We seek refuge in Your house, where we find security and peace. Guide us, protect us, and lead us in the path of righteousness for the sake of Your name.
In Jesus’ name, we pray.
