List of 11+ Powerful Prayers for Safekeeping

Any time is a good time to pray a prayer for protection, but it can be especially important when we are in a spiritual battle, when we sense the presence of evil, when we face temptation, when we need discernment or wisdom, or when we desire a stronger faith.

In all circumstances, we can rest assured that God is working every single thing for our good. Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

As Paul the Apostle said in Ephesians 6:12, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

No matter what is going on in your life right now, take comfort in knowing that God will protect you. Absolutely nothing is more powerful than God’s shielding! He will provide the strength you need to overcome any obstacles.

Use these words to start/guide your conversation with God. Any time is a good time to pray!
