Shield of Faith: Prayer for Fearless Protection
The Importance of Faith in Our Daily Lives
Faith plays a vital role in the lives of believers. It is the foundation upon which we build our relationship with God and allows us to trust Him in all aspects of our lives. The book of Hebrews speaks about faith as the “assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). This means that, although we may not physically see God working in our lives, we can have faith and trust that He is present and active.
“In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;”
In addition to giving us hope and confidence in God’s presence, faith provides protection from spiritual attacks. The Apostle Paul describes this protection as a “shield” in his letter to the Ephesians:
“And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”
As believers seeking fearless protection against fear or negativity from sinners around us it becomes more imperative for Christians worldwide to hold on tight unto their faith hoping for salvation through Christ Jesus.
A Prayer for Shielding Us with Faithful Protection
Loving Father, We come boldly before you today adorned with your outstretched arm which always bears safety. We pray Lord for your protective hand over us amidst dangers lurking around, may our hope in you bring us your promise of peace, comfort, and safety when our hearts are troubled and we held captive by the deceitful acts of sinners who prowl like lions to devour their prey.
- May we step out with unwavering faith in Your Word.
- May You direct our paths as we put all our trust in You.
- May the Holy Spirit lead us into a spirit of boldness as we face challenges that come upon us daily
- Grant us a heavenly command for divine protection corresponding with your Word over every situation that arises.
We acknowledge that without faith it is impossible to please you (Hebrews 11:6) because -Who are we aside from being mere mortals seeking repentance each day if not guided by Faith?
“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”
We place all fears into your hands Father knowing it is written clearly in1 Peter 5:8 instructing believers to “Be sober-minded; be watchful.” And also shielded from any danger lurking around just as stated in Ephesians 6:16. The Firey darts of Doubt seem scary but We are sure through Faith this shield remains impregnable. May our Faith remain strong until Christ Returns – Amen.
