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.
