Prayer for protection – family

Lord, I pray Your emotional, physical, and spiritual protection over my kids (grandkids). Keep evil far from them, and help them to trust You as their refuge and strength. I pray You will guard their minds from harmful instruction, and grant them discernment to recognize truth. I pray You will make them strong and courageous in the presence of danger, recognizing that You have overcome and will set right all injustice and wrong one day. Help them to find rest in Your shadow, as they live in the spiritual shelter You provide for them. Let them know that the only safe place is in Jesus, and that their home on earth is only temporary.

Prayer for protection – personal

Father, I come to You today, bowing in my heart, asking for protection from the evil one. Lord, we are assailed moment by moment with images on television, the internet, books and newspapers that leave us vulnerable to sin of every kind. Surround us with Your divine hedge of protection. Encompass us round about with Your strength and Your might. Let all who take refuge in You be glad, let them ever sing for joy. And may You shelter us, that those who love Your name may exult in You. For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O LORD, You surround him favor as with a shield. (Psalm 5:11-12)

Lord, I ask that You protect our minds. Father, the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace. (Romans 8:6) O God, set our minds on You. Let us not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our minds that we may prove what Your will is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2) Help us by the power of Your Spirit to think on whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything is worthy of praise, let our minds dwell on these things. (Philippians 4:8)
Strengthen us in the power of Your might, O God. Dress us in Your armor so that we can stand firm against the schemes of the devil. We know that our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.(Ephesians 6:10-12)
You are our keeper, O Lord, the shade on our right hand. Protect us from all evil and keep our soul. Guard our going out and our coming in. From this time and forever. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Pray The Word-Prayer of Protection

Psalm 91, 68, 35, and Zechariah 2:5
Psalm 4:8: I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; For You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
Psalm 91:11: For He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
Psalm 127:1: Unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.
Ephesians 6:12: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

God I ask in Jesus’s name today and for always place a hedge of protection and a wall of fire all around me. Give your angels charge over me to guard, protect, and rescue me from the terror that stalks by night, the weapons that fly by day, and the destruction that devastates at noon. Let no evil or any afflictions come near me or my dwelling place. Be my refuge, fortress, my ever present help in the time of trouble. Cover me under Your wings. Cause me to lie down in peace and sleep. O Lord make me to dwell in safety. Lord You be the watchman over my life, family, and home.

God cause me to be victorious. Honor me with excellent health, and a long healthy prosperous, productive life in Christ Jesus. Let the mind that is in Christ Jesus be in me. Bless me with wisdom, knowledge, and understanding when it comes to spiritual warfare. Teach me how to war in the Holy Spirit using the Word of God, through faith and trust in You, obedience, prayer, fasting, praise and worship unto You. Let me adopt the “God Only” Strategy of Warfare. Bless me Lord Jesus to dress for success daily (The Whole Armor of God/ Ephesians 6:10-18).

God You arise in my life and cause my enemies to be scattered (psychologically, spiritually, and physically)that come to fight, torment, steal, kill, and discourage me. Fight against all those who fight against me. Take hold of Your weapons Lord Jesus. Draw out Your sword and wound the head of my enemies. Say to my soul, I am your salvation. I will protect you.

God vindicate me according to Your righteousness. Do not let my enemies rejoice over me. Let no weapon form against me ever prosper. Utterly destroy all the evil plans of my enemies. Disappoint, humiliate, and cause my enemies to be greatly ashamed. Distract, frustrate, and confuse their minds. Cause them to turn on themselves. Into the very destruction that they planned for me, let them fall. Trouble my enemies in their sleep and during the day. Let them say, I will have nothing to do with this just person: for I have suffered many things in dreams because of them.

God save, deliver, and cause my enemies to come to know You, love You, and walk in obedience to Your Word and Will for their lives. Let their lifestyle be shaped by the Word of God. Cause them to walk in the love and integrity of Christ Jesus. God all that I have asked of You in this prayer, please do the same for the writer of this prayer, all those I love, care about, and those who love and care about me. Thank You Lord Jesus for answering this prayer with a yes, so be it, and it is so. Amen.

Prayer to break any curse on your life

“Lord Jesus Christ, I believe that you are the Son of God and the only way to God, and that You died on the cross for my sins and rose again from the dead.  I give up all my rebellion and all my sin, and I submit myself to You as my Lord. I confess all my sins before You and ask for Your forgiveness – especially for any sins that exposed me to a curse. Release me also from the consequences of my ancestor’s sins.
By a decision of my will, I forgive all who have harmed or wronged me- just as I want God to forgive me. In particular I forgive…..

I renounce all contact with anything occult or satanic- if I have any “contact objects”, I commit myself to destroy them.   I cancel all Satan’s claims against me.   Lord Jesus, I believe that on the cross You took on yourself every curse that could ever come upon me. So I ask you now to release me from every curse on my life- in Your Name, Lord Jesus Christ! By faith, I now receive my release and thank You for it.”

Prayer Points for Wives to Pray for Their Husbands

  1. Pray for Your Husband’s Walk. Pray that he will put God first in his life for if he submits to God all of his other priorities in life will be rightly ordered. Pray that God will place a burden on his heart to be a spiritual leader by praying with and for you and your children. A family that prays together stays together.
  2. His Thoughts. Pray that your husband will guard his thoughts from ungodly influences by fixing them on “whatever things are true, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtuous, and praiseworthy” (Philippians 4:8). Pray that he will honor God with his thought-life.
  3. His friendships. Pray that your husband will surround himself with other men who will hold him accountable to his walk with God. Pray that he will maintain friendships with men who respect your marriage together and who will  encourage and pray with him. A strong man of God never stands alone; he links arms with other men of God.
  4. Ask for Wisdom. Ask the Lord to show you how to respect your husband at all times. Ask Him to give you the strength and wisdom to separate your feelings from your obligation to submit to your husband as unto Him (Ephesians  5:22). Honoring your husband is about honoring God. Pray that He will show you how to see your husband as He does.
  5. His Protection. Pray that God orders his steps and keeps his feet from stumbling near the enemy’s snares. Pray that the Lord assigns angels to guard him from any dangers that may befall him.
    May God preserve him from all evil and preserve his soul, his going out and his coming in from this time forth, forevermore, in Jesus’ name. Amen. (Psalm 121:7-8).
  6. His heart. Pray that God will keep his heart from growing stony. Pray He will soften it but fill it with His Holy Spirit so your husband can lead you from a place of confidence in Christ and godly power. Pray that your husband will grow fruits and that you will enjoy its bounty in your marriage: Love, Joy, Peace, Long-Suffering, Kindness, Gentleness, and Self-Control (Galatians 5:22-23).

I take authority over all curses, hexes, spells, voodoo practices, witchcraft assignments, satanic rituals, incantations and evil wishes that have been sent my or my families’ way and I break their influence over my life or that of my family members by the power of the risen Lord Jesus Christ. In Christ’s name, I command these curses to go back to where they came from and be replaced with a blessing from you God almighty through the power of the Holy Spirit.

I believe Lord you will guard me and my family from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from those who have planned to trip up my feet, lay a hidden a trap for me, and set snares for me. I trust you Lord God that you will guide my feet along the path in life and correct my walk if I ever start to stray from the path of your Will.

Lord, I rest upon your promise that you will deliver me and my family from Evil, and I believe no evil plague shall be allowed to enter my home.  I believe you will guide my life and place me in accordance to your Will, so that I may walk the blessed walk, for myself and to live for you, so I can be an example to all of those around me.

Lastly, Alpha and the Omega, the Eternal Father Who created all things, I believe God in your Power to guide me, Your Might to uphold me, Your Wisdom to teach me, and in Jesus and the Holy Spirit to watch over me in all I do and thank you for keeping my family and I safe.
I believe this will be done on Earth as it is directed in Heaven by your seal of approval, and the action and movement of the Holy Spirit in Heaven.
In your Merciful and Loving name Father God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit- Amen.


Prayer for his protection

The Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian

HIS PROTECTION – Lord, I pray that you would protect my husband from any accidents, diseases, dangers, or evil influences. Keep him safe, especially in cars and planes. Hide him from violence and the plans of evil people. Wherever he walks, secure his steps. Keep him on Your path so that this feet don’t slip. If his food does slip, hold him up by Your mercy. Give him the wisdom and discretion that will help him walk safely and not fall into danger. Be his fortress, strength, shield, and stronghold. Make him to dwell in the shadow of Your wings. Be his rock, salvation, and defense, so that he will not be moved or shaken. I pray that even though bad things may be happening all around him, they will not come near him. Save him from any plans of the enemy that seek to destroy his life. Preserve his going out and his coming in from this time forth and even forevermore.
