Prayer for Protection: When facing the enemy

Prayer for Protection: When facing the enemy

prayer for protection against your enemies @godlywoman911

The Bible offers great examples of different prayers and today we will experience a prayer for protection.

In life you will come against persons who may have more power, wealth, strength and the list can go on and on.

Be reminded that it is only a perception. Christ lives in you.

Call out to him like Asa, one of the kings of Judah, did in this:

Prayer for perfection

“Then Asa called to the Lord his God and said, “ Lord, there is no one like you to help the powerless against the mighty. Help us, Lord our God, for we rely on you, and in your name we have come against this vast army. Lord, you are our God; do not let mere mortals prevail against you.””
2 Chronicles 14:11

Asa’s prayer for protection highlighted several things:

  1. The sovereignty of God “there is no one like HIM”;
  2. God is the ultimate helper for those who are powerless against the mighty;
  3. His plea to God and acknowledgement that we rely on God;
  4. When faced with the enemy we should not be encountering the situation by ourselves, instead, we need to go against the enemy in God’s name;
  5. We serve God alone and no other;
  6. And a plea to God to not allow “mere mortals” to win

If you are facing/ or when you face the enemy, think about the way in which Asa spoke to God in his prayer for protection and use his example in your own prayer.

Lastly, God loves you and he has promised to never forsake his people. Therefore, call out to him and he will always answer you… on time.

Most importantly, take the time to learn more about prayer. There are many great resources available. In addition this blog offers great prayer opportunities and a section where we pray for you – just let us know.

May God’s mercy, love and grace be with you.

Silent God: Know why God does not answer

Published by godlywoman911

I became a Christian at a young age and baptized at the age of 13. My journey has been bittersweet. A majority of my life I have been a Christian. But not a Godly Woman. After many failures, tears and tribulation I realized that something in my Christian life had to change. No longer can I profess that I am a Christian but don’t show daily that Christ lives in me! No longer can I claim that I am HIS child when my thoughts, actions and deeds were not overflowing with HIS love. No longer could I live the way I was living and not seek him daily in prayer, scripture and worship. As the Lord blessed me with that knowledge I felt him also calling me to write my journey and share my thoughts, learning and mistakes with others. Hence the reason for 911. Not only was it a crises in my life to become a Godly Woman but as I delved into scripture to understand how to be Godly, I realized that we are living in crazy world where the desire to be Godly was no longer important. Many boast that they are a Christian and weekly attend Church, but lack the Godly qualities that Christ seeks in ALL of his followers. My deepest desire is to serve Christ faithfully, obey HIM joyfully, trust HIM always, seek HIM eternally and become his close friend so that I can share in his truth and knowledge. I pray that this blog blesses you and provide you with the strength, courage and wisdom to be a Godly Man or Woman.
