Protect Me From Harm
You know my enemies are trying to kill me - in body, mind, and spirit. I pray for your Divine Protection over me, my home, and my family today. Just like in the Old Testament when your people put the blood of the Lamb over their doorposts. You promised that the Destroyer would pass over them. I apply the blood of Jesus over the doorpost of my heart, my family, and my home for protection.
Send your fighting Angels Lord to me. Lord, you said You would fight for me and I need only be still. Let your Angels surround me like a ring of fire and let no harm come to me or my 'tent'. Hide me and my family under the shadow of your wings like You promised in Psalm 91. Let me rest as I watch the Salvation of the Lord come to me and my family. Prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. Today is the day of salvation, today is the day I need you Lord.
Send me a Deliverer or Kinsman Redeemer if that is what You think I need. Put people in my path who will help lead me out of darkness and into the light of Your presence.Lord, You said you would open doors that no man could shut. Open the doors for my escape. Do not let me be put to shame. Restore unto me the joy of Your Salvation and uphold me with your righteous right hand. Show me the way Lord - Show me the light of day, and though 1000 fall on one side and 10,000 on another side - You promised I would not be harmed. I declare and decree Your Divine Protection over me, my family, and my home, in Jesus Name.

You who sit down in the High God’s presence,
spend the night in Shaddai’s shadow,
Say this: “God, you’re my refuge.
I trust in you and I’m safe!”
That’s right—he rescues you from hidden traps,
shields you from deadly hazards.
His huge outstretched arms protect you—
under them you’re perfectly safe;
his arms fend off all harm.
Fear nothing—not wild wolves in the night,
not flying arrows in the day,
Not disease that prowls through the darkness,
not disaster that erupts at high noon.
Even though others succumb all around,
drop like flies right and left,
no harm will even graze you.
You’ll stand untouched, watch it all from a distance,
watch the wicked turn into corpses.
Yes, because God’s your refuge,
the High God your very own home,
Evil can’t get close to you,
harm can’t get through the door.
He ordered his angels
to guard you wherever you go.
If you stumble, they’ll catch you;
their job is to keep you from falling.
You’ll walk unharmed among lions and snakes,
and kick young lions and serpents from the path.
“If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God,
“I’ll get you out of any trouble.
I’ll give you the best of care
if you’ll only get to know and trust me.
Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times;
I’ll rescue you, then throw you a party.
I’ll give you a long life,
give you a long drink of salvation!”
(Psalm 91:1-16 MSG)

Can I tell you the day I wrote this my youngest daughter was in a car accident - she and her friend walked away, although the car did not fare so well. Thank you Jesus, for your faithfulness and your protection for my family.
