With life and everything that it encompasses, one thing we all worry about is our own and our loved ones’ protection and safety. The bible says in Psalm 127 that the watchman watches in vain unless the Lord watches over the city.
Our God is our guardian, and we find security and peace in Him. So you don’t have to be concerned about your own or your family’s safety; simply say these protection prayers and leave the rest to God. He will guard you, your home, your family, and your friends. Simply pray. May the Lord’s blessings be upon you.
