The practice of praying the Psalms of David is not new among Christians. Over the years, praying Psalms has proven to be very effective in getting answers from God, and getting God to intervene in daily life challenges and situations. Today, we bring you psalms 91 prayer for protection

Prayer itself is powerful. Prayer done in line with God's Word is even more powerful. The efficacy of praying the scriptures cannot be overemphasised. Remember, God said that His Word is like fire and like a hammer that smashes a stone in pieces (Jeremiah 23:29).

Apart from the fact that the Psalms of David deal with themes such as God's love, God's faithfulness, God's providence, faith and worship; a major part of the book captures David's struggles and contention with his enemies. 

Psalms 91 Prayer For Protection

Because David was a man after God's heart and a man of prayer, God always showed up to deliver him out of trouble and from his adversaries. 

David was known for often making supplications before God, each time he needed God's intervention to overcome a particular challenge. He also gave praises each time God intervened to give him a solution to those problems.

Because David walked with God—and as a soldier—having enjoyed successive victories in battles against his enemies (Psalm 144:1), he attracted even more enemies and battles. It wasn't a mistake when he said that 'many are the afflictions of the righteous' (Psalms 34:19). 

David understood that by his own strength, it wouldn't have been possible for him to get such dimension of victory he often got over his enemies. That is why he was also careful to ascribe to the Lord all the glory and praises due Him. 

As human, David also had his moments of fear. He knew how desperately his enemies wanted to destroy him, and how much he needed God's protection. It was in those moments that he knelt before God, pouring out his heart to Him and asked for His help. 

Because those supplications of David worked for him and compelled God to act on his behalf, it can as well work for us today. Remember, our God is still the same God. He is unchanging. He is still the Mighty man in battle. He still offers the best protection. 

Psalm 91 is one of those powerful chapters of the Psalms of David which has overtime proven very effective in attracting God's protection. If we must pray this psalm, let us do so with faith, knowing that the same God who didn't fail to protect David, will also listen to our cry and protect us from the works of our enemies

Psalm 91 prayer is a prayer for Christians. The psalm of David is not a mantra that can be used by different religions of the world to manifest the results they desire in any given situation. 

That said, for this prayer to work for you, it means that you have to be a Christian. If you're not yet a Christian but you want to benefit from this prayer, go ahead and read Prayer For Repentance and then you can pray this salvation prayer

Psalm 91 Prayer


All the prayer points you will get below will be based on this scripture:

Psalm 91 NIRV
Whoever rests in the shadow of the Most High God will be kept safe by the Mighty One. I will say about the Lord, “He is my place of safety.
He is like a fort to me. He is my God. I trust in him.” He will certainly save you from hidden traps and from deadly sickness. He will cover you with his wings. Under the feathers of his wings you will find safety. He is faithful. He will keep you safe like a shield or a tower. You won’t have to be afraid of the terrors that come during the night. You won’t have to fear the arrows that come at you during the day. You won’t have to be afraid of the sickness that attacks in the darkness. You won’t have to fear the plague that destroys at noon. A thousand may fall dead at your side. Ten thousand may fall near your right hand. But no harm will come to you. You will see with your own eyes how God punishes sinful people. Suppose you say, “The Lord is the one who keeps me safe.” Suppose you let the Most High God be like a home to you. Then no harm will come to you. No terrible plague will come near your tent. The Lord will command his angels to take good care of you. They will lift you up in their hands. Then you won’t trip over a stone. You will walk on lions and cobras. You will crush mighty lions and poisonous snakes. The Lord says, “I will save the one who loves me. I will keep him safe, because he trusts in me. He will call out to me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in times of trouble. I will save him and honor him. I will give him a long and full life. I will save him.

Psalm 91 A Prayer Of Protection


Below is a very brief but powerful summary of David's prayer in Psalm 91. I made this brief so that you pray it if you're in dire and hasty need of God's protection. 

Dear God, because I trust in You, I come before You today seeking safety under your shadow. I ask that You would protect me from both seen and unseen harm. I trust that You will keep me safe from all entrapments of the enemy and and from all projections of darkness against me. I will neither fear the terrors of the night nor the plague that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall by my side and ten thousand around me, these evils shall have no effect on me. Because You have promised to always deliver me from evil, I trust in Your Word as much as I trust in You. I believe in Your Power to protect me from the devices of the enemy. Thank You Father for Your love which is made manifest in the safety You have given me in You. In Jesus Name, I pray. Amen.
