Psalm 91 Prayer

O Lord, my Refuge, my Fortress,
I place my trust in You as Your Word guides me to find peace under Your wings.
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.” – Psalm 91:1
I call upon You, Lord, to shield me from the trials and tribulations that roam in darkness and the destruction that strikes at midday.
Let Your truth be my protector and defender as I navigate through life’s challenges.
As promised, though thousands may fall beside me, near me it shall not come. Your faithfulness is my armor and my shield.
I declare that no harm will befall me, no disaster will come near my home, for You have given Your angels charge over me, to keep me in all my ways.
On their hands, they will lift me up, so that I will not strike my foot against a stone.
I am grateful for Your promises of deliverance and safety, knowing that when I call to You, You will answer; You will be with me in trouble, You will deliver me and honor me.
With long life will You satisfy me and show me Your salvation.
I trust in Your shelter, Lord, for it is unbreakable. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
