Take a few moments today to read through this passage of scripture from Psalm 91. Below the verses is a model prayer you can use to pray through this Psalm and stand on the promises provided in it. Take time today to meditate on these verses and really believe what they say during this time.
PSALM 91 - NIV “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.””
Prayer: Lord, because I dwell in the shelter of the Most High, Your word promises that I will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I confess that I do not feel restful right now. The world feels chaotic and scary but today I choose to trust Your word over the reports in the world today. Thank You for Your promises to me that I will rest in your shadow. Lord, I trust You! I make this declaration today and every day. I TRUST YOU, LORD! Thank You for being my safe place, my refuge in the midst of the chaos. Thank You that You have saved me from the traps of the enemy and I thank You for protecting me from every sickness or disease that tries to come my way. I
know that I do not have to be afraid. Even during the nighttime when things look the darkest I know that I am covered by Your love and faithfulness. Just like a mother hen covers her chicks with her feathers You surround me with Your love. Even when it seems that everyone else around me is afraid or everything else is in turmoil I know I can trust You and know that You love me and will take care of me. Because I know that I have put my trust in You and that I make Your presence my home I know that You have and will protect me from everything the enemy tries to throw at me. I know that my home is protected, my family is protected and all those that trust You also live under Your protection. Thank you for sending Your angels to surround me and to have my back. I also Thank You for giving me the authority to put the enemy in his place, which is under my feet. I operate in that authority today and stand on the promises that because I love You and most importantly because You love me I walk protected by You. I will make it known to others where my help comes from and acknowledge that You, Lord are my refuge. Thank You so much, Lord, that You hear me when I cry out to You. Thank You for answering me with love and grace and mercy. Thank you that I am not alone and that I know You are aways with me even in the difficult times. Thank You for walking beside me through this storm and I know that I will come out on the other side victorious. Thank You for saving me and for giving me all that I need to live this life. I love You! Amen!
