Prayer for protection from the enemy

By Pastor Rachael Saibu, Co-Founder/ Senior Pastor at TCOLG

[1] Deliver me, O Lord, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;

[2] Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.

[3] They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. Selah.

[4] Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; Preserve me from violent men, Who have purposed to make my steps stumble.

[5] The proud have hidden a snare for me, and cords; They have spread a net by the wayside; They have set traps for me. Selah

[8] Do not grant, O LORD, the desires of the wicked; Do not further his wicked scheme, Lest they be exalted. Selah

[12] I know that the LORD will maintain The cause of the afflicted, And justice for the poor. [13] Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your name; The upright shall dwell in Your presence”

Good news for the oppressed, the persecuted, the harassed, the poor and the needy, the Lord is here today on your case to help you. Problems are a part of life and can emerge suddenly from anywhere or any place, but there is always solution from God Almighty. The Problems of life should make one stronger, wiser and to draw closer to God. Remember Satan is always behind every problem of mankind, even back to Adam and Eve.

Be strong and be courageous to arise and attack your problems at the source (Satan) and God will give you victory. God that delivered David from Saul will deliver you from your enemy. He will defeat all of them and set you free from their harassment. Call upon God in prayer today and He will surely help you. You will come out of that problem better, stronger and shining. He will sustain you, He will uphold you and He will lift you up above your enemy. God is a friend that can never forsake you, draw closer to Him in prayer, be in His presence in your heart always. God loves and care about you more than anyone can. Cast your burden on Him, He will help you and bring peace to your soul. Remember Psalm 46:1 KJV says, "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” God will give you strength to go through any process, protect you and be there to deliver you.

Remember, the enemy can come against you, in so many ways. The enemy does this by attacking your finances, your job, marriage, children and health. The enemy can even attack, your spiritual life, in areas such as prayer, devotion and by disturbing the will of God for your life. Sometimes the enemy can go as far as making one forsake God by seeking help somewhere else. You can say, I will never do that, but how could Peter the rock, strong as he was deny Jesus to fall for Satan. This is telling us that none of us is able to stand on our own against Satan without the help of God, we need God’s grace to sustain us. (Read 1 Corinthians 10:11-13 NKJV).

Think about this. Jesus assured Peter in Luke 22:31-32 KJV, that He had prayed for him and that his faith faileth not, although it would be shaken to fail but would not be destroyed. It would be renewed, and Peter would become a pillar and a powerful leader. You too will overcome and become a pillar that can never be destroyed in Jesus name. God will not give you more than you can bear and your enemy will never prevail over you in Jesus name. Don’t give in to Satan, give in to God and He will give you victory in Jesus name.


What to do:

*Give your life to Jesus if you have not done so.

*Repent if you are living in sin.

*Forgive anyone that offends you and hold no grudges against anyone.

God will surely fight for you. He will keep you as the apple of his eye and hide you under the shadow of His wings (Psalm 17:8 KJV). In that situation you are going through now, I see God bringing justice for you in Jesus name.



Pray this prayer with all your heart and trust God for an answer. He will surely give you victory.

1-Oh Lord make haste to help me, rescue me from all evil planned against me. Uphold me and keep me safe from my enemy.

2-Keep me in good standing before you always and keep me as the apple of your eyes. I am weak but you are strong, strengthen my weary heart, increase my faith and let me not fail you.

3- Oh Lord, frustrate and destroy every mischief the enemy plan against me. Turn every wars they stir up against me to promotion, peace and joy.

4- Oh Lord scattered every satanic gathering against me. Let their be confusion and irreconcilable differences between my enemy that will scatter them.

5- Lord you are God that bring war to an end, take over every war they plan against me and fight on my behalf against them. Further not their mischief.

6-Every poison either in word, in thought or in action they have released against me, let the blood of Jesus neutralise all their effect in my life and destroy them.

7- Every agent of Satan on assignment against me, I command you to fall down for my sake. Fall into the very pit that you dig for me.

8- Oh Lord as I journey through this year, go ahead of me and destroy every hidden snare and every cords set for me in any part of the world. Let your consuming fire burn them to ashes.

9- Oh Lord put asunder every scheme, every nets by the wayside and every trap set for my destruction. You have promised that no weapon formed against me shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17) utterly destroy them.

10- Oh God of judgement, let all the petition of my enemy against me from anywhere or any place not be granted but to backfire against the perpetrators. You my enemy, carry your evil desire against me in Jesus name.

11- I know that the LORD will maintain my cause and grant me complete and total victory over all my enemies that surround me like bees.

12- Thank you Lord for executing justice for me. Surely, I shall give thanks to Your name. Your goodness shall follow me all the days of my life.
