Need some Prayer Points For Protection?
Whenever we think of the word protection, we often link it with defense against physical harm.
Although our physical safety is an important aspect to pray for, the enemy attacks us in many unseen ways.
If we’re not aware of his schemes, we can easily overlook places in our lives that are in need of God’s protection and our shielding.
2 Samuel 22:3-4 shows us a perfect example of God’s role in our safety. It says, “My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge, my savior; you save me from violence. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.”
God is not only a refuge for the believers in scripture but He remains the Savior of those who call out to Him today.
