Prayer for Protection

My God, protect us. Let nothing harm us.  Do not let depression take hold, do not let anxiety overcome us, do not let fear stop us.  Preserve our joy!

For Your word says, "Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me." -Psalm 138:7  

Lord, stretch out Your hand before us, put Your strong shield in front of us, surrounding us, so no one and nothing will be allowed to hurt us, distract us, steal our joy, or to lead us away from You. 

Thank You Father for protecting us from ourselves, those things we have begged You for that haven't happened yet... let us see that as Your protection from something that wasn't good for us in the first place!  -In Jesus' name, Amen.

Prayer for Guidance

Father, just tell us it's going to be okay! Oh how many times do we cry out asking You to show us the way, give us the map, just tell us what You want us to do! But, You do! 

You have given us the Bible as our instruction manual, and the Holy Spirit as our guide. Oh Lord as we struggle help us to stop consulting everyone else in our lives for advice, but rather read Your word, and follow Your lead.. Let us not become distracted or get of course by others. 

For that thing we need help with today Lord, help us to find the answer in Your word, and not ignore the Holy Spirit's direction. Show us the way!

"For that is what God is like. He our God forever and ever, and He will guide us until we die." -Psalm 48:14

-In Jesus' name, Amen.
