A Prayer for Protection

This article offers you prayer for protection.

By saying a prayer you are taking a moment to consider that spiritual protection is HERE for you now, waiting to be claimed.

The bigger invitation is to take a moment to touch the reality that
LOVE and LIGHT are the only truth
you are held in LOVE and LIGHT
you are LOVE and LIGHT
there is NOTHING to protect against.

I am NOT suggesting you disregard any appropriate safety measures and hygiene measures.
I am inviting you IN ADDITION to pray for protection or rest in the knowledge that you are safe - whichever language works best for you.

In my case I have lived with sensitivity to chemicals and electricity.
I have managed my environment to allow for my body’s current reactions.

But in a moment when symptoms have arisen, I also aim to say a prayer for protection.
I hold a vision that:
"my body copes wonderfully and healthily in the environment within which I find myself".

My suggestion is to learn a line from your chosen prayer for protection by heart and repeat it often.

When you experience a moment of fear or lack of safety it is sometimes because you are reliving a time in childhood or a subsequent time of trauma.
It is natural that in such a moment you forget an emotional or spiritual resource now available to you.

If you know your one line prayer for protection well enough you are more likely to remember to say it.

Prayer for Protection based on bible verses

Below, I include bible verses for spiritual protection followed by a prayer based on those verses.

From my point of view these prayers are available to you regardless of your faith.
But I understand that you need to find the language of prayer that works best to allow you to deepen your own spiritual connection.

“Have you not put a hedge around him
and his household
and everything he has?

You have blessed the work of his hands,
so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land.”

(Job 1:10, NIV Bible)

Dearest God,

you have put a hedge around me
and my household
and around everything I have.

You bless the work of my hands.
And so, I am abundant.

Thank you. Thank you.


prayer for protection from st patrick

“I am not afraid for the terror by night;
nor for the arrow that flies by day;
Nor for the pestilence that walks in darkness;
nor for the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at my side, and ten thousand at my right hand;
but it shall not come near me.
No evil befalls me,
nor does any plague come nigh my dwelling.

For You give Your angels charge over me,
to keep me in all my ways.

They bear me up in their hands,
lest I dash my foot against a stone.”

Psalm 91 personalised Bible prayer for protection

You give your angels charge over me
to keep me in all my ways.

They lift me up in their hands
lest I dash my foot against a stone.

Thank you. AMEN

This is one of my favourite one line spiritual protection quotes:
“His angels lift me up in their hands”

A Prayer for Protection from a person – verbal abuse or physical abuse

“If anyone attacks you, it is not from Me;
whoever assails you will fall before you.

Behold, I have created the craftsman
who fans the coals into flame
and forges a weapon fit for its task;
and I have created the destroyer to wreak havoc.

“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper;
and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD,
and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.”

Isaiah 54:17, KJV Bible prayer for protection

Dearest Light,

Even if a weapon is raised against me, I practise the knowledge that I remain unscathed.

If someone accuses me unfairly, I refute their words, either out loud or in private.
I retain a clear sense of my worth in your eyes.

I receive your gift - the knowledge that I am held in your Love, protected and safe.

Thank you. AMEN

Prayer of St Patrick – a powerful prayer for protection.

We take time to centre ourselves in God

This prayer has been abridged.

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through a belief in the Threeness,
Through confession of the Oneness
Of the Creator of creation.

I arise today...
Through the strength of heaven;
Light of the sun,
Splendour of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of the wind,
Depth of the sea,
Stability of the earth,
Firmness of the rock.

I arise today
Through God’s strength to pilot me;
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak for me,
God’s hand to guard me,
God’s way to lie before me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s hosts to save me
From snares of the devil,
From temptations of vices,
From every one who desires me ill,
Afar and anear,
Alone or in a multitude....

Christ shield me today
Against poison, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding,
So that reward may come to me in abundance.

Christ with me,
Christ before me,
Christ behind me,

Christ in me,
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me,

Christ on my right,
Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down,
Christ when I sit down,

Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me,
Christ in the ear that hears me.

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through a belief in the Threeness,
Through a confession of the Oneness
Of the Creator of creation.
