Spiritual Warfare: 'God Defends and Protects His Own'

God's Power for Our Battles — Tuesday, September 6, 2022

But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name be joyful in You. For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield.
— Psalm 5:11-12 NKJV

Today's Prayer

Lord, You are the One I trust. You are my Creator, my Savior, my Lord, and my Master. I shout for JOY at the sound of Your Name and because You defend those who pledge their allegiance to You and Your Son Jesus. Thank You for blessing me, and for Your constant favor. Please continue to surround me with Your mighty shield of divine protection. You are my defense against the attacks from the world that I must withstand. Thank You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
