Dear Lord,

I come boldly asking for Your divine safety and protection over the nations.

I pray that You would assign strong and mighty angels to watch over the nations, cities and communities. May You encamp each one in a hedge of protection to keep safe in all their ways.

Father , thank You for the power and authority that You have given us over the devil and over every evil and demonic spirit; and with that authority, I bind Satan, every principality, and every spirit of weakness from hurting or harming those who belong to You, in any way, by the authority of the name of Jesus Christ.

No weapon formed against those who belong to You shall prosper. You instructed us to cast our cares and our worries upon You, and You would sustain us. Therefore I cast my cares and worries upon You. I am confident , that according to Your word, You shall sustain and keep safe all of my love and cares. Your word says You are faithful to keep us from all evil.

Because I trust in You to watch over my community of neighbors, friends and loved ones, I thank You for allowing Your peace to rest upon me and my every concern. Thank You and praise You for victory in Christ Jesus. Amen.
