Deliver Me

My prayer based on Psalm 91

Almighty God, I resolve to live in Your shelter because it’s the only place I will find rest.
I declare this about You, Lord: You alone are my refuge, my place of safety; my surest trust.
You will rescue me from every trap and protect me from every disease.
You will cover me and shelter me with Your wings.
Your faithful promises are my armor and protection.
I will not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day.
I will not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
Though everyone else may give in and give up, I will cling to You for complete victory.
I have chosen to make the Lord my refuge, my shelter, my victory, my total protection.
You have ordered Your  angels to protect me wherever I go.
They will hold me up with their hands so I won’t stumble.
In Your power I will defeat every foe that comes against me.

You, O Lord, have said, “I will rescue those who love Me. I will protect those who trust in My name.
When they call on Me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them.
I will reward them with a long life and give them My salvation.”

I take You at Your word, my God. Deliver me!

I love turning God’s Word into prayers! Check out this post where I elaborate on this idea.

    Craig, I LOVE Psalm 91.
    Many years ago a friend of mine and I memorized it together, so I have a deep love for it. This prayer gives it fresh perspective.
