In Jewish thought, Psalm 91 conveys the themes of God’s protection and rescue from danger.
The psalm begins with a promise to those who remain, inhabit, and abide (H3427, yashab) in the hiding place or shelter (H5643 sether) of the Most High God. They will “stay permanently” (Strong’s H3885 lun) in the shadowing protection (H6738 tsel) of El Shaddai.
Your love and faithfulness, along with Your goodness and mercy, surround me daily, so I will not fear whatever might come against me. My trust is in You, God, and I give thanks to You for Your love and protection. In Jesus’ name, Amen. Grant , O Lord, thy protection and in protection, strength.
Loving God , I pray that you will comfort me in my suffering, lend skill to the hands of my healers, and bless the means used for my cure. Give me such confidence in the power of your grace, that even when I am afraid, I may put my whole trust in you; through our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
Looking over Psalm 91 we see promise after promise of His protection for us, but verse 1 holds the secret to the promises: Dwell in the secret place , which simply means to seek Him; draw near to Him.
Pestilence means a deadly and overwhelming disease that affects an entire community. The Black Plague, a disease that killed over thirty percent of Europe’s population, was certainly a pestilence . Pestilence is also one of the four Horseman of the Apocalypse in the book of Revelation (which is part of The Bible).
The testimony is the self revelation of God . In other words, it represents God’s heart desire, which is also God’s requirement; or we may say, God’s standard. His standard reveals himself, showing us what a God He is. When this testimony comes to man, it becomes law.
Psalm 51 is one of the penitential psalms . It is traditionally said to have been composed by David as a confession to God after he sinned with Bathsheba. The psalm is a regular part of Jewish, Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Protestant liturgies.
Those who are righteous live in right-relationship with God, with people, and with and the world God created. The final verse of Psalm 92 reminds us that flourishing in old age has everything to do with God. The righteous will proclaim that “The LORD is upright” ( 92 :15).
Pray Psalm 91 to Abide in Christ 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.” The words dwell, rest, refuge, and fortress are words that mean we are to abide in the Lord.
You can either pray your prayers in your mind or speak them out loud. God is able to hear your prayers either way!
Protection from the Evil One Prayer I come to Your refuge with joy for You shelter me against the attack of the devil. Protect me, O Lord, from the craftiness of the enemy, and save me from his evil plots. Cover me with Your presence when I feel weak so that he will flee from my presence. Amen.
To help you focus, repeat the Catholic “ Miracle Prayer .” The prayer goes as follows: “ Lord Jesus, I come before Thee, just as I am, I am sorry for my sins, I repent of my sins, please forgive me. In Thy Name, I forgive all others for what they have done against me.
By praying every night , it gives you that chance to feel loved and supported every single day. That is something we all need to feel on a daily basis. When you take the time to pray at night , you’re setting yourself up for a good night’s rest. You can ask for answers in your dreams and then look for them!
Ephesians 3:14-21 For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.
