Protection Prayer to Foil the Plans of Enemies
Dear heavenly Father, we live in such evil days, I pray against all enemy activities that are being done in secret, which are designed to harm and to destroy us. Protect Your people we pray, bring the attacks of the enemy to nothing and foil all the plans and purposes that are harmful to us..
Lord we know that it is not Your will that any should perish but that all should come to repentance in Christ, and so we pray for the souls of those that are bound by the lies and deceit of the enemy and who are being manipulated by the deception of the evil one.
We ask that in Your grace and mercy those that have been blinded to the truth of the glorious gospel of Christ by the activities of the enemy would be brought into a knowledge of the saving gospel and come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour – we ask this for His praise and glory and in Jesus name, Amen.

A Prayer for Your Husband’s Protection
Lord Jesus, I ask You to protect my husband and shield him from danger. Make him strong, defined by Your character, so that he can lean hard on You for wisdom in any situation. Guard him by the power of Your name, and allow nothing formed against him to prosper. Hold him close to Your heart, with his eyes focused always on You. At home, work, or wherever he goes, keep his heart and thoughts pure. Lead him away from temptation, and help him to be continually aware of his enemy’s efforts to distract, deceive, or discourage him. Cancel every attempt to discredit my husband or his salvation.
May Your right hand strengthen him daily as You guard him with your presence. Help him wear his spiritual armor well, as he tries to lead his family with integrity and honor. Seal up the exits that cry for escape when responsibilities grow heavy on his shoulders. Thank You that You promise to carry his burdens and lighten his load in the daily battles of life. Preserve his testimony and keep his faith rooted deeply in You, Lord. You are His Sure Defense, and You are the only One who can truly keep him safe. Thank You, Jesus.
Prayer For Protection From The Devil
Almighty and everlasting God, I bless you from my heart, that of your infinite goodness you have preserved me this night past, and have, with the impregnable defence of your providence, protected me from the power and malice of the devil.
Do not withdraw, I humbly ask you, your protection from me, but mercifully this day watch over me with the eyes of your mercy. Direct my soul and body according to the rule of your will, and fill my heart with your Holy Spirit, that I may pass this day, and all the rest of my days, to your glory,
A Prayer for Protection from Earthly Enemies
Precious Jesus, You know what it means to be pursued by earthly enemies. And because of Your compassion and understanding, You know the harm we and our families face every day. As Christians and followers of Yours, we will be marked as enemies. Our children need protection from bullies, from misguided avengers, and from false philosophies that attack their spiritual heritage. Fiendish plots pursue our children’s hearts daily and try to entice them into harmful practices. Hold our loved ones tightly, Lord, and never let them go.
Command Your angels, Lord, to keep us in all our ways, so that no harm or disaster will come near to our home or our lives. Our trust is not in our ability but in Your stability as our El Shaddai. Our weapons of warfare are spiritual, and we look to You for victory. Show us when to speak up, when to listen, and when to act, always aware that You are fighting our battles for us and with us. Teach us to love our enemies, to pray for them, but to resist evil in Your powerful name. We don’t fear those who might try to hurt us physically. We are confident in our eternal security. Our fear is a holy, righteous reverence based on Who You are and Whose we have become in You. As Commander and Chief, You will defend us from all earthly enemies. And as long as You are with us, we fear no evil. In Your name, Amen.

Thank You, that no matter how dark the night may be, the light of Your love is ever present with me, for You are the Light that brightens up the darkest places and will shine the brightness of Your presence before my face, to lighten up the night around me. Praise Your holy name. In Jesus’ name,
Prayer For The Protection Of Persecuted Christians
Heavenly Father, we lift up before You the many thousands of Christians around the world who are being cruelly persecuted, abused, tortured and killed and there is little or no outcry about the atrocities that are been perpetrated against so many world-wide. Father, we pray for Your protection from the psychological exhaustion and emotional fear that so many are going through, and we pray that Your Holy Spirit would draw so close to them and protect them. Give them the spiritual strength to endure under such inhumane regimes.
Guard and guide them we pray. Provide for them and empower them to know and experience the love of God, and give them the strength to remain firm in the faith. Enable them we pray, to be fruitful witnesses of the love of Christ, despite the evils and atrocities that are being perpetrated against them. And Father, we ask that they would so grow in grace that they may be able to forgive their persecutors and demonstrate the love of Christ towards those who are dead in their trespasses and sins.
May Your mighty hand of protection be upon all that are suffering in this manner and give them the fixed assurance that God will right every wrong in His own time and in His own way. In Jesus’ name we pray,

Prayer Of Protection From False Teachings
Heavenly Father, there are so many false teachings and doctrines of demons that are flooding mainline churches today, and I pray that You would give me discernment and protection from all those, (whether knowingly or unknowingly) who are distorting the word of truth and the gospel of grace.
Give me wisdom and understanding as I read Your Word, so that I may be enabled to discern what is biblical truth and what is a distortion of that truth. Father, Your Word tells us that in the last days there will come times of great difficulty, where love will wear thin and people will be become proud and arrogant, abusive and unholy, having an outward appearance of godliness but denying the truth of the gospel. Protect me I pray, and all those I love from being influenced by such evil distortions, and keep us under Your promised protection, by Your grace.
Protect our hearts and minds from all those who distort the truth, and keep us all covered in the love of God, and protected by the blood of Christ, as we wait for His any day return. He alone is able to keep us from stumbling and to present us blameless before the presence of His glory with great joy. In Jesus’ name we pray,
