Praying for God's Protection
Note: These prayers are NOT meant to be shortcuts or to replace a close and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. HE is our ultimate protection and hiding ourselves under His wing is the position we should always remain in. We should keep short accounts with sin in our lives, confessing and repenting, keeping a clean slate so as not to give the enemy any foothold in our lives. If you have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour of your life, might I invite you to do so now. Please go to This page to read more on this subject. I am a Christian and my life is in His hands. My Faith is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness. Read more at "What is salvation and why do I need to be saved ?".
Do this once through out your home.
Note: When addressing the enemy, speak aloud. You don't need to do this in a loud voice, even a whisper is fine, but the enemy is not all knowing. Please pray these prayers in faith believing and not as a chant or as if reading a memorized shopping list.
Go through your house with any oil, it doesn't have to be anything special, olive oil, vegetable oil, baby oil are all great. Put a small dot of oil on top and the sides of every access way into your home, windows and doors and interior entryways into every room of your house, including basement and attic. (You only need to do this from the inside!) If you have a garage, do not forget to anoint this building as well. Pray this. "I pray for the protection of the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ over this room/window/entryway."
Go through your house, asking the Lord to show you any object or item that gives you pause, that makes you wonder if it is to be prayed over. Questionable statues, posters, books, movies, CDs, souvenirs brought back from vacation, knickknacks, jewelry, that sort of thing. Ask the Lord if you should anoint it, praying the prayer above over it, or just dump it out of your house. Don't spend hours wondering over objects, ask the Lord to speak to you clearly and quickly and trust Him that he will show you what if anything must be removed or anointed. Please NOTE: Only do this over objects you actually own. You do not have the right to remove or destroy another person's property. If something truly gives you spiritual "willies," speak to the person calmly, without accusation and ask them if you can pray a prayer of blessing over it or remove it from the home.
Bible Verses of God's Protection In Times of Danger - Click on this link for promises of God's protection over yourself and your loved ones. Personalize these as you pray, for example: Psalm 91: Replace the word "he who dwells" with "Robert who dwells" or whomever you are called to cover in prayer.
A word of caution about praying for angelic protection. Keep in mind that Satan himself is a fallen angel and that most bible scholars agree that many angels chose to rebel along with Satan. Always ask God to send you HIS angelic protection in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and make sure to research carefully anyone who offers courses on 'angels' and 'angelic> spirit guides' or 'angel protectors'. Many new-age practioners do not understand the difference between fallen angels and God's heavenly guard. If you are researching online, always look for the website's statement of faith or 'about us' page. If they do not clearly state that there is no other way to Heaven and no other way to God except through unconditional and total surrender to Jesus Christ, stay clear of those teachings. Any website that says there are many ways to God or to 'enlightenment' stay clear. Stay away from any books or so called agencies or ministries that assert that Jesus is only one of many spiritual 'teachers'. Although they may use language that seems 'Christian' on the surface, you will find most such books, teachings and websites deny Jesus' deity and rightful authority as the ONLY way, the ONLY truth and the ONLY light. Avoid any web site or book that places more emphasis on the created (Angels) than the creator, Yahweh, the only true and living God.
Pray them in this order.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command a hedge of protection to be around my home and property today and I ask that warrior angels sent by the one true God would be placed to stand guard at any holes that might be in that hedge. *Holes in the hedge can be caused by yet to be dealt with sin, trauma or wounding in the lives of the people who dwell in the home.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command any free, unbound, or wandering spirits to get out beyond that hedge of protection now.
In the name of Jesus Christ, I ask that warrior angels be placed at the doorways and access points to my home and property today that would keep out any free, unbound or wandering spirits that would try to access my home and property today. Jesus, send warrior angels that would bind and separate from their functions any demons attached to any individuals entering my home and property today. * An access point could be cable TV, internet, telephone or other communication devices in the home, power hookup, water supply or heat source.
Father God, I ask for a spiritual umbrella of protection over me and a spiritual hedge of protection around me. I place the full armour of God on me, and I ask that the light of the Lord Jesus shine through me this day.
Note: I strongly recommend praying Ephesians 6 daily over yourself and meditating on the scripture often.
Eph 6: 13-17 Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
If you are plagued by nightmares, restless nights sleeping and a sense of uneasiness in your bedroom, pray this before going to bed each night.
Father God, I ask that you would send warrior angels at the bedposts of my bed. (Alternatively, the corners of your bed if you don't have a bedpost) and I declare that YOU are the Lord of my nights.
Praying for Children/spouse
1. Father God, please place a barrier of protection around each one of my children right now and Lord Jesus, I ask that you would come today, at any time necessary, to deal with any and all spirit beings which might attempt to harass my children/spouse.
2. Pray Ephesians 6 over your children and spouse.

I ask this prayer in the name of Jesus AMEN.
