11 Powerful Christian Prayers for Protection

As children of God, we are all in need of prayer and protection by God’s hand. Here are 11 powerful Christian prayers for protection.

Driving Travel Protection Prayer
Lord, as I travel today, please travel with me. You protected Moses in the wilderness for 40 years of traveling, so please protect me as I drive today. Have mercy on me, and keep me alert and attentive. Protect all the drivers around me with Your angels. Make me aware of when I am getting tired so that I can know I need to take a break. Keep obstacles off the road in front of me, and help me reach my destination safely. In Jesus’s name. Amen.

Protect My House Prayer
Jesus, You are so wonderful. Jesus, You are so powerful. Jesus, You are so lovely. Today please protect my house from all forms of evil. You sent two angels to guard the garden of Eden, so please send angels in front of my house to protect me from the evil one. Let my house be a house full of the presence of God. Now, I ask that all things not of Christ in my house leave. Banish them forever, and keep my family safe in Your presence. In Jesus’s name, Amen.

Protect My Troubled Mind Prayer
Lord, dislodge anything high and lofty against You in my mind. Let my mind be soaked in the blood of Jesus Christ. Purge every form of evil from my mind. Protect me from the critical and judgmental thinking of others. Help me to keep every thought captive to the obedience of Christ Jesus. Holy Spirit, as You roamed the earth, in the beginning, hover around my mind and keep guard of it throughout the day. In Jesus’s name, Amen.

Protection during Daily Routine Prayer
Father God, protect me as I do all the things I need to do today. I have a lot going on and need to move quickly to get things done. Give me Your divine wisdom in working through my schedule for my day so that I make good decisions, and stay out of harm’s way. Help me go about my day in a way that glorifies Jesus. Please show me if there is something else that You have planned for me, and if so, use me. Whisper in my ear those divine plans You have for me. Keep me away from the traps of the destroyer. In Jesus’s name, I pray. Amen.

Protection from Lies Prayer
Righteous Father, thank You that Your Word is the truth. I pray that You cover my ears with Jesus’s blood and protect me from hearing any lies today. Father, let Your Word be louder than anything the serpent has to say. If I am already believing a lie, please release me from the power of that lie, and fill me and with Your truth. In Jesus’s name, Amen.

Coat of Jesus’s Blood Prayer
God of Heaven’s Armies, I just ask that the holy precious blood of Jesus protects me from all evil. Let me wear His blood as armor to protect me from the evil that surrounds me. I pray that every enemy of the cross sees Your Son’s blood upon me and flees, in Jesus’s name. Let my strength be a message to the serpent that You are in charge. Thank You for Your blood, Jesus. In Your name, I pray. Amen.

Protect My Unborn Child Prayer
Father God, as Your Son was in Mary’s womb, You protected Him. I plead with You and ask You to protect my unborn child. Oh, Father, You protected Your Son for nine months in the womb and I ask that You protect my child while he is in my womb. Strengthen my child physically and spiritually. Help me to do the right things, get proper rest, and eat a nutritious diet that will fuel my baby’s growth. Protect Your little lamb, always and forever. In Jesus’s precious name. Amen.

Refuge in Jesus’s Pierced Hands Prayer
Oh Lord God, as You protected Noah in the Ark through the rain and stormy weather, I ask that You protect me from all the outside disturbances that are happening in my life. Lord God, I take refuge in Your nailed pierce hands. As Noah took his family into the ark, I ask that You take all of my family members into Your nail-pierced hands and keep us safe. Crush any enemy that comes knocking at our door. In Jesus’s name. Amen.

Protection of My Life during Sickness Prayer
Jesus, my Lord and Savior, I beg and plead before You to heal my weak body. Restore my health, and keep it from getting worse. Jesus, I come before You as a beggar and ask for You to protect my life from this sickness that has overcome me. You turn Your head from the proud, but give grace to those who live in humility. Everyone who reached out to You in the Bible was healed. Let my prayer reach You. Hear me, Jesus. Please, Jesus. Amen.

Protect My Thoughts Prayer
Lord Jesus, I love You so much. As I interact with others today at my job, please protect my thoughts from negativity and evil, so that I radiate love toward others and do not say harmful things to or about anyone. Radiate Your love and kindness through me, and touch everyone around me. They don’t need me, Lord, but instead they need Christ in me. Please grant me this, Lord. Amen.

Eyes of Christ During Errands Prayer
Jesus Christ, as I run errands today, let me have Your eyes, oh Christ, to protect me as I am out in public. Anoint my eyes that I may see things as You see them in Heaven, and not operate on autopilot, possibly getting hurt. Wash my eyes in Your Son’s blood so that I can see harm before it gets to me. Protect my eyes from seeing any evil today so my mind can just see You. Let me see You in all things. Let my eyes be fixed on the One who forgave my sins at the cross. In Jesus’s holy name. Amen.
