Prayer Challenge Day 12; Praying for His Protection

When praying for ones protection, I have learned that there are 3 main areas to pray for protection.

Physical

Emotional

Spiritual

Praying for physical protection

Psalm 91:11 says, “For he will command his angels concerning you
       to guard you in all your ways
.”

How comforting it is to know that God commands his angels concerning us. His angels are there to protect us.  I love praying for the angels that the Lord has commanded to see after my husband and children.  I love hearing the stories of the “near misses”  my husband has experienced while driving or in other circumstances.  We both know that the Lord’s protection is responsible for my husbands safety.

Praying for  emotional protection

Isaiah 26:3, You will keep in perfect peace  him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.

Pray protection over your husband’s mind.  Ask the Holy Spirit to guard again frustration, doubt & depression.  Even in the midst of difficult circumstances, your husband can experience perfect peace if his mind is steadfast on the Lord.

Praying for spiritual protection 

Ephesians 6:10-12, Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.  Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Pray for spiritual protection that the Holy Spirit would protect your husband from the the schemes and from personal attacks of the Devil .  He is on the attack & if your husband has a close relationship with the Lord, he is at the top of the Devils list.

What a blessing it is when we can see the evidence of God’s protection in you and your husband’s life.
