9 Powerful Prayers for Cleansing and Protection

When we feel like we are in a spiritual battle in life, seeking the Lord’s protection can offer relief. These powerful prayers for cleansing and protection will remind you that God is always in control.

Dear Lord, please wash me thoroughly from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. Father, I aim to be like You, but sin has kept me far from You. I pray that You cleanse me of my sin and forgive me for where I have missed the mark. Cleanse me spiritually, emotionally and physically so that I can be a better ambassador for Christ. Lord, I pray for less of me and more of You so that I can be pure in Your eyes. Amen.
Psalm 51:2

God of Love, I confess my sins because Your word tells me that You are faithful and righteous to forgive me of my sins and to cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Purify me with hyssop (like that which the ancient Hebrews did), and I shall be clean; wash me and I shall be whiter than snow. Remove every ungodly thought, motivation or intention that resides within me. Cleanse me so that I can be made righteous. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
1 John 1:9 & Psalm 51:7

Oh Lord, create in me a clean heart, and renew a steadfast spirit within me! Hear the cries of my heart right now, for the uncleanliness that surrounds me is what the enemy has sought to use against me to kill and destroy me. I declare, that by Your sovereign power and the faith that I have in You, I will be made clean for I am Yours and You came so that I may have life in You more abundantly. Amen.
Psalm 51:10

Hallelujah, what a Savior! For it is on this day that atonement shall be made for me to cleanse me; I proclaim that I will be clean from all my sins before You Eternal Father. You sent Your only begotten Son so that through Him, I would not perish but would be saved by the washing of my sins through the blood of Jesus Christ. I am unworthy of this, but I thank You for allowing Jesus to be my advocate and for showing me great grace. Amen.
Leviticus 16:30

Mighty Warrior, You are my hiding place. You will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. Thank You for cleansing me so that I may be delivered and protected by You. Thank You for being my refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. I look to You in my times of trouble because I know that there is no greater protector, there is also no one who stands undefeated like You Jehovah-Nissi. Father, You reign in victory! Amen.
Psalm 32:7 & Psalm 46:1

Holy Father, I pray for Your divine protection; let it be evident in every area of my life. I declare that no weapon formed against me will prosper and I will refute every tongue that accuses me. This is the heritage of being Your servant, and this is my vindication from You. Thank You in advance for ensuring that I will not be harmed by the adversary who prowls around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may kill or destroy. Amen.
Isaiah 54:17 & 1 Peter 5:8

Heavenly Father, You are my protection for You have given me the shield of Your salvation; Your right hand has held me up, Your gentleness has made me great. You enlarged the path under me, so my feet did not sleep! Lord, You even deal with my enemies. I have pursued my enemies and have overtaken them; neither did I turn back until they were destroyed. You make sure that no plan (or a person’s intention) to harm me comes to fruition. Amen.
Psalm 18:35

Eternal God, I magnify Your Name because You are my Awesome Defender and You are the Undefeated Victor! Your word tells me that You will fight for me; I need only to be still. How amazing it is that You allow me to be still in times of battle? How wonderful it is that You allow me to take a seat whilst You go before me and allow me to receive the victory here on earth! Amen.
Exodus 14:14

Beautiful One, all of creation bows before Your great name. I bow before You Lord because even as I grow old, even when I get grey hairs, You are my God, You are He who will sustain me. You have made me, and You will carry me; You will sustain me and rescue me because of Your nature. Through You I am saved, cleansed and protected, I thank You for who You are. Amen.
Isaiah 46:4
