Protected by a Wall of Fire
Today I wanted to share some powerful scripture verses that you can claim and pray when you need Divine Protection. When you speak these over yourself and your life – amazing things happen when you are a believer! I cannot tell you how many times God stepped into my situation and gave me Divine Protection. He has protected me from abusers, car crashes, injuries, death, depression, violence, and so much more. God is faithful to us, and to His WORD!
But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
May the LORD answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
The LORD is my light and my salvation-whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of whom shall I be afraid?
Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.
I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah
For the LORD loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones. They will be protected forever, but the offspring of the wicked will be cut off;
Do not withhold your mercy from me, O LORD; may your love and your truth always protect me.
Blessed is he who has regard for the weak; the LORD delivers him in times of trouble. The LORD will protect him and preserve his life; he will bless him in the land and not surrender him to the desire of his foes. The LORD will sustain him on his sickbed
Deliver me from my enemies, O God; protect me from those who rise up against me.
Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me.
I am in pain and distress; may your salvation, O God, protect me.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
“Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
Surely he will never be shaken; a righteous man will be remembered forever. He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD. His heart is secure, he will have no fear; in the end he will look in triumph on his foes.
The LORD protects the simple-hearted; when I was in great need, he saved me.
I lift up my eyes to the hills – where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip-he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD watches over you-the LORD is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD will keep you from all harm-he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
Rescue me, O LORD, from evil men; protect me from men of violence,
Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; protect me from men of violence who plan to trip my feet.
for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.
Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.
Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.
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.
I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name-the name you gave me-so that they may be one as we are one.
My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.
2 Thessalonians 3:2-4
And pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men, for not everyone has faith. But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.
1 Peter 3:12-14
For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.” Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened.”
