The Bible provides numerous reassurances of God’s protection over His people. In Isaiah 54:17 (NIV), we read, “No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the Lord. This verse underscores the promise of divine protection against any form of evil.

Another comforting promise is found in Psalm 91:11-12 (NIV): “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.” These verses remind us that God commands His angels to watch over and protect us and our loved ones.

As we pray for the protection of our children, it’s essential to approach God with faith, trusting in His power to safeguard them from all harm. This prayer combines heartfelt supplication with scriptural promises, ensuring that our children are under God’s mighty protection.

Prayer for Protection of Children

Dear Heavenly Father,

I come before You with a heart full of love and concern for my children,
Seeking Your divine protection and deliverance from any plans of the devil.
Your word in Isaiah 54:17 reassures me,
“No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the Lord.
I hold onto this promise, trusting in Your powerful protection over my children.

Lord, Your word in Psalm 91:11-12 reminds me,
“For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
They will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.”
I ask for Your angels to guard and protect my children in all their ways.

Deliver my children from any plans of the enemy,
Shield them from harm and danger,
And surround them with Your divine protection.
Fill their hearts with Your peace and their minds with Your wisdom.

Grant me the strength and faith to trust in Your protection,
And help me to guide my children in Your ways.
Thank You for Your unfailing love and mercy,
For being our constant guide and protector.

I commit my children into Your hands,
And trust that Your blessings will flow abundantly upon them.

In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
