Day Twelve: His Protection

Every word of God is flawless;
he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
- Proverbs 30:5
For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
- Psalm 91:11-12
Lord, I pray that You would protect my husband from any accidents, diseases, dangers or evil influences. Keep him safe, especially in cars and planes, (and especially at work). Hide him from violence and the plans of evil people. Wherever he walks, secure his steps. Keep him on Your path so that his feet don't slip (Psalm 17:5). If his foot does slip, hold him up by Your mercy (Psalm 94:18). Give him the wisdom and discretion that will help him walk safely and not fall into danger (Proverbs 3:21-23). Be his fortress, strength, shield, and stronghold (Psalm 18:2-3). Make him to dwell in the shadow of Your wings (Psalm 91:1-2). Be his rock, salvation, and defense, so that he will not be moved or shaken (Psalm 62:6). I pray that even though bad things may be happening all around him, they will not come near him (Psalm 91:7). Save him from any plans of the enemy that seek to destroy his life (Psalm 103:4). Preserve his going out and his coming in from this time forth and even forevermore (Psalm 121:8).*
I claim Your word for my firefighter husband that says, "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze." (Isaiah 43:2) In Jesus' name I pray these things, Amen.
He who dwells in the secret place
of the Most High shall abide under the shadow
of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord,
"He is my refuge and my fortress;
my God, in Him I will trust."
- Psalm 91:1-2
Show Your marvelous loving kindness by Your right hand,
O You who save those who trust in You
from those who rise up against them.
Keep me as the apple of Your eye;
hide me under the shadow of Your wings.
- Psalm 17:7-8
