Protection: Father, we come to You today, asking for protection from the evil one. Lord, as we are surrounded this week by images of ghosts and witches which make our little ones vulnerable we pray for Your divine hedge of protection. Surround us and our families with Your strength and Your might.
Lord, we ask that You protect our minds. Father, we know that the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace. (Romans 8:6) O God, set our minds on You. Let us not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our minds that we may prove what Your will is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2) Help us by the power of Your Spirit to think on whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything is worthy of praise, let our minds dwell on these things. (Philippians 4:8)
Lord, we pray for Your emotional, physical, and spiritual protection over our children and grandchildren. Keep evil far from them, and help them to trust You as their refuge and strength. We pray You will guard their minds from harmful instruction, and grant them discernment to recognize truth. We pray You will make them strong and courageous in the presence of danger, recognizing that You have overcome Help them to find rest in Your shadow, as they live in the spiritual shelter You provide for them. Let them know that the only safe place is in Jesus.
The Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one." - 2 Thessalonians 3:
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91
