Someone close to me experiences terrible nightmares on occasion. The dreams include dreadful accidents of all kinds and when details are relayed about these times, I shudder. I’ve received emails from readers who have written about things that have happened to them and my mind can’t even wrap around all it has taken for them to survive. Today I wanted to offer a prayer of protection. Simple words to lift up to our Father in heaven, the great Creator, who is always in control.
When things seem out of control, God is always in control. – One More Step
The next time a hint of fear creeps into your soul and you need the reminder that God is FOR you, never against you, feel free to use this prayer as your own.
A Prayer of Protection
When doubt and fear arise deep within
And my heart leans toward insecurity,
I can only ask for your protection.
Lord, save and secure as only you can.
As sure as you’ve created the universe,
Your word promises
You are still in control.
May I realize your presence is near
And your power is above all.
May I run to your refuge and
find comfort in your greatness.
I praise you that no height or depth
can extend beyond your reach;
And no love can expand beyond yours for me.
By his grace,
