As a parent, you likely think regularly about the topic of safety and protection as it relates to your family. After all, this world can be a pretty scary place these days. Perhaps, you think about the safety of your husband or wife as they travel to and from work, or you worry over your children’s safety when they are away from home, no matter their age, even when they are at school.
Thankfully, this effective, guided prayer, published by Daily Effective Prayer, shows you how to effectively pray for protection over your whole family as they go about their day.Advertisement
In many stories in the Bible, you will learn about God protecting believers in amazing ways. Simply think about a few of the Old Testament stories, including Daniel in the lion’s den, David when facing Goliath, or Moses fleeing the pursuing Egyptians. Time and time again, God protects those who follow him. This is still true today as we are promised in Psalm 5:11, “But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in You.”
Unfortunately, as believers, sometimes bad things will happen, even when we pray for protection. Thankfully, though, by committing ourselves to prayer for protection over our families, we can ensure that God is right there beside us as we face whatever comes our way that day and that we will prevail. As it says in 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 “We are hard-pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”
