Everyone knows someone who is or may be going to battle, whether physical or spiritual. Psalm 91 is a source of inspiration and prayer.
I believe it is important to pray the scriptures. Several years ago I heard stories about soldiers using Psalm 91 to pray for safety and protection in battle. I was inspired to compose this prayer based on the King James Version of Psalm 91.
Below are links to several different sizes of printer friendly versions of the Soldier’s Psalm 91 Prayer and Psalm 91. Please make copies and feel free to share them. If you have them laminated, they will last longer!
Soldier’s Psalm 91 Prayer
O Lord Most High, help me to dwell in your secret place and abide under Your shadow.
Help me to believe and say out loud for everyone to hear that You are my refuge and my fortress; that You are my God; and that in You I put my trust.
O Lord God Almighty, please deliver me from hidden traps and diseases.
Father God, cover me with Your camouflage; hide me under Your wings; and let Your truth be my shield and buckler against the fiery darts—the lies—of the enemy.
Lord Jesus, help me not to be afraid of terrorists’ attacks in the night; or weapons that fly by day; or sicknesses that walk in darkness; or destruction that wastes at noonday.
O Holy God, though a thousand fall at my side, and ten thousand fall at my right hand; please let it not come close to me and my companions.
O Lord Most High, let me live to see the reward of the wicked, because You are my refuge and my home. Let no evil conquer me and let no plague come into my house or near my family.
O Lord, my Strength and my Redeemer, please set angels over me to keep me in all Your ways, to bear me up in their hands and to keep my feet from stumbling.
Father God, help me to tread upon the lion and adder and trample the young lion and the dragon under my feet.
Lord Jesus, I love you with all my heart and I know Your name. Deliver me and lift me on high to soar with the eagles. I call upon you to be with me in times of trouble to deliver and honor me because I know Your name. Please show me Your salvation and satisfy me with a long life.
I ask this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ
Based on Psalm 91 and composed into prayer by Harriet Yoder
