Good Monday morning to you! Many of us are going through difficulties, trials, and challenges. We often feel overpowered by evil, overcome by hurt and overwhelmed by the cares of life. God’s Word offers help in our time of need. In God’s Word, I’ve found strength, encouragement, and words to pray protection around myself, my family, and my friends.
The book Psalm 91:God’s Shield of Protection offers a prayer you can pray. I’m sharing it on my blog today, thanks to author Peggy Joyce Ruth’s choice to share it with us. Feel free to print the prayer out and use it as many times and in as many ways as you need. Pray for yourself, your family and your friends. Together we pray on.
All my love and prayers,
