Why We Need Prayer for Protection?
A short prayer for protection can be used in many circumstances for protection against evil, harm, enemies, travel mercies, natural disasters, health and medical situations, childbirths, 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 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 heart’s desires, to share your needs and concerns with Him, to rely on and trust in Him for all things. “But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.” (2 Thessalonians 3:3)
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, its military, and its 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.
