Thank You For Protecting Us Lord

We dwell in Your shelter, we rest and abide in Your shadow, Almighty God. You are our refuge and fortress, Lord we trust in You! You deliver us from the snare of the trapper and from deadly pestilence, destructive plagues, and worthless speech. 

You cover us with Your feathers, under Your wings we find refuge and safety; Your faithfulness is our shield and protection. We aren’t afraid of the terrors of night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. We will not be afraid of any attacks from the enemy because You have our soul Lord. 

A thousand may fall at our side and ten thousand at our right hand, but it will not come near us. We are safe in Your hands. Knowing You has given us peace. We will only see the reward of the wicked – the righteous see the downfall of the enemy. Because we have made You our refuge and dwelling place, no harm will overtake us, no evil will conquer us and no disaster, plague, illness or disease will come near our house.

You give Your angels charge over us, keeping us safe. They lift us up in their hands and taking care and keeping us from danger and hurt so we don’t even hit our foot against a stone. Thank You Father for having Your angels around us at all times.

We will tread on lions and cobras; we will trample and crush the young fierce lions and serpents under our feet. Because we love You Lord, You rescue, deliver, and save us. You set us securely on high protecting us because we know and trust in Your name. We call on You and You answer. You are with us in our troubles. You rescue us and bring honor to us also.

Thank You Lord for rewarding us with long life and showing us Your salvation. We will see Your eternal goodness.

Psalm 91
