God Hear My Prayer God in heaven hear my prayer,keep me in thy loving care.Be my guide in all I do,Bless all those who love me too.Amen. —Traditional Child's Prayer for Protection Angel of God, my Guardian dear,To whom God's love commits me here;Ever this day, be at my sideTo light and guardTo rule and guide. —Traditional Hurry to Pray (Adapted from Philippians 4:6-7) I won't fret and I won't worryInstead I'll hurry to pray.I'll turn my problems into petitionsAnd lift my hands in praise.I'll say goodbye to all my fears,His presence sets me freeAlthough I may not understandI feel God's peace in me. —Mary Fairchild The Lord Bless You and Keep You (Numbers 6:24-26, New International Reader's Version) "May the Lord bless you and take good care of you.May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you.May the Lord look on you with favor and give you peace." A Prayer for Guidance and Protection (Adapted from Psalm 25, Good News Translation) To you, O Lord, I offer my prayer;In you, my God, I trust.Save me from the shame of defeat;Don't let my enemies gloat over me! Defeat does not come to those who trust in you,But to those who are quick to rebel against you. Teach me your ways, O Lord;Make them known to me. Teach me to live according to your truth,For you are my God, who saves me.I always trust in you. I look to the Lord for help at all times,And he rescues me from danger. Protect me and save me;Keep me from defeat.I come to you for safety. You Alone Are My Safe Place (Adapted from Psalm 91) Lord, Most High,You are my shelterAnd I rest in your shadow. You alone are my safe place.I trust in you, my God. You will rescue meFrom every trapAnd protect me from disease. You will cover me with feathersAnd shelter me with your wings. Your faithful promisesAre my armor and protection. I am not afraid of the nightOr the dangers that come by day. I am not afraid of the darkOr disaster that strikes in the light. No evil will touch meNo evil will conquer meBecause God is my refuge. No plague will come near my homeBecause the Lord Most High is my shelter. He sends his angelsTo protect me wherever I go. The Lord says,"I will rescue those who love me.I will protect those who trust in my name." When I call, he answers.He is with me in trouble. He will rescue meHe will save me.
