Day Three: Securing Protection from Harm

Hide (them) under the shadow of Your wings,
from the wicked who oppress (them),
from (their) deadly enemies who surround them.
- Psalm 17:8-9

For He shall give His angels charge over you,
to keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up,
lest you dash your foot against a stone."
- Psalm 91:11-12

Lord, I lift David & Elizabeth up to You and ask that You would put a hedge of protection around them. Protect them spirit, body, mind and emotions - from any kind of evil or harm. I pray specifically for protection from accidents, disease, injury, or any other physical, mental, or emotional abuse. I pray that they will make their refuge "in the shadow of Your wings" until "these calamities have passed by" (Psalm 57:1).

Hide them from any kind of evil influences that would come against them. Keep them safe from any hidden dangers and let no weapon formed against them be able to prosper. Thank You, Lord, for Your promises of protection.

Help David & Elizabeth to walk in Your ways and in obedience with Your will so that they never come out from under the umbrella of Your protection. Keep them safe in all they do and wherever they go. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.*

I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.
- Psalm 4:8

I also like the following verse for my husband, who is a firefighter:

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
not shall the flame scorch you.
- Isaiah 43:2
