The Psalm 91 Prayer for a Hedge of Protection

The following Prayer is for a hedge of protection around you and your family according to Psalm 91. Psalm 91 is a prayer for Christians only. This is not a prayer to be prayed for or by non Christians as the basis of the protection is seen in Verse 14.  If you would like to know how to become a Christian, see the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  If you would like other scriptures to meditate on for protection and against fear, you can visit this page – Bible Verses for Protection

Psalm 91 NLT (New Living Translation)

1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
3 For he will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from deadly disease.
4 He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.
8 Just open your eyes,
and see how the wicked are punished. 9 If you make the Lord your refuge,
if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet! 14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
and give them my salvation.”

Hedge of ProtectionHeavenly Father, I (we) ask You to place a hedge of protection around me (us). It hides me (us) from the enemy, familiar spirits, any and all demon spirits, making it difficult, if not impossible for them to effectively track or trace me in the realm of the spirit. There shall be no perforations or penetrations to these hedges of protection according to your word in Psalm 91. I(we) know that You will answer this prayer because I (we) love You and I(we) trust in Your name only.  I pray that Your blood Lord Jesus will cover me(us) and all that You have given me(us).  That the enemy will not have access to what has been given to me(us).Thank you for your divine protection in Jesus Name, Amen.

Here are some other scriptures for you to pray and meditate on and also another Prayer For Protection:

Exodus 12:13 (New Living Translation)

But the blood on your doorposts will serve as a sign, marking the houses where you are staying. When I see the blood, I will pass over you. This plague of death will not touch you when I strike the land of Egypt.

Zechariah 2:5 (New Living Translation)

Then I, myself, will be a protective wall of fire around Jerusalem, says the Lord. And I will be the glory inside the city!’”

Job 1:7-10 (New Living Translation)

“Where have you come from?” the Lord asked Satan.   Satan answered the Lord, “I have been patrolling the earth, watching everything that’s going on.” Then the Lord asked Satan, “Have you noticed my servant Job? He is the finest man in all the earth. He is blameless—a man of complete integrity. He fears God and stays away from evil.” Satan replied to the Lord, “Yes, but Job has good reason to fear God.  You have always put a wall of protection around him and his home and his property. You have made him prosper in everything he does. Look how rich he is!

    Thank you for this prayer. I was led to this site through google. I asked that you pray a special for my children through the school year. Especially my 19yr old son whom has become addicted to synthetic drugs. I love him dearly and he's waying heavy upon my heart. Also, pray for me and my thorns that i tend to mercifully ask God to remove from my life. Thank you MOP. GOD BLESS

      • Peter
        I will pray
      • Jennie
        I am praying. I lost my only son at the age of 24 almost 2 months ago due to illness and aneurism most likely caused by his drug use. My solace is that 5 days before his death I was blessed to be a witness to him receiving Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. I mourn him deeply, but know that after years and years of worry and fear for him culminating only in his earthly death, I would not be able to bear the loss without knowing that he received eternal life. I pray that your son is freed from the chains of addiction and is blessed as well as you and your family
    • Ilaine
      Just found this site. How is your son doing. I only ask because I had a similar situation. If I hear back from you and your are still having a situation I will tell you something. My God Bless and Keep you and your family. Drugs is most definitely a family matter. It hits just like cancer. One has it, everyone feels it.
  2. Erika
    I disagree with the idea that this is for christians only! So God so loved the world that he gave his one and only begotten son. That who ever, that's right whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life! Jesus loves all of us. You don't have to be Christian to love Jesus! I'm a Christian and even I know this!
    • MOP
      Hi Erika, while you might disagree with the "idea" that Psalm 91 is not for unbelievers this is a fact. Not ever scripture in the bible is for everyone. You also need to know that an unsaved person cannot pray the Armor of God (Ephesians 6:6-10 for protection) because that is for believers only too. If everything in the bible was for everyone, why be saved? What would be the incentive? Jesus did die for the world but guess what? The world won't be saved! It's all about free will. We get to choose. Life or death, the choice is ours but not everyone will choose Jesus. Here are some other facts that people generally hate hearing... Some people will actually go to hell. Revelation 20:15 Fact. Jesus is the only way to heaven, this not a suggestion. There are not several paths to salvation, only Jesus. John 14:6 Fact. There is a devil. Revelation 20:2 Fact. There is a hell. Revelation 20:14 Fact. NO, these facts are not warm and fuzzy. They are just facts! Why would God do that? You should read Romans 11:11. Even Jewish people have to be saved by Jesus. Yes, not even the chosen get a free pass. God set it up this way to spark JEALOUSY! Imagine you can cast out demons, heal the sick, work miracles, open the heavens and blessings pour out to people EVERYONE would say "how do you do that? I want to do that too!" Your response should be... Well, you need to come to Jesus, accept Him as your Lord and Savior and you get the benefits package - eternal life first and the rest of it to boot! We don't hand out the blessings and benefits while watching people go to hell. There are benefits here on earth to being saved. Not everything in the bible is for unbelievers. Why? To make them realize they need Jesus to enjoy the benefits! If someone asks you why can't you pray Psalm 91 over me? You simply tell them this is for those who have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior, I can pray for you to receive Christ right now and then you too can pray this Psalm. Would you like to do that now? It's that simple Erika. Guess what? At the end of the day it will be their choice. Free will. If you have further questions, talk to your pastor about this.

  6. Celena
    Please pray for me, Celena, and my exhusband, Neil, to get back together. I was a lost soul: I lied, had multiple affairs and didn't know how much I loved him until I came home one day and all his things were gone. I ask for forgiveness everyday for my transgressions. I am not sure if God has forgiven me. I know my ex hasn't. He said he has locked me off, and the things I am doing are being done too late, he wants to move on and has asked me to respect his wishes. But I believe my God is a God of miracles and forgiveness and compassion. He can see my heart and knows why I strayed. He also knows how sorry I am and how much he means in my life. I pray this Hedge of Prtection prayer and I also pray to St. Jude, the patron saint of impossible petitions. I pray everyday for him to heal me and forgive me and send Neil back to me. I love him and miss him. Though he is surrounded by people who are introducing him to drinking, partying and other women, my God is powerful and will protect his mind from being influenced further and will open Neil's eyes and show him that despite all, I was good to him and never took advantage of him as these people are doing. What God has put together, let no man put asunder. Believe and have faith, all. And when Neil and I are reunited in Christ's name I will come back and give my testimony. So be it, Amen!
  7. Gabe
    This Psalm, I feel, draws seekers. It resonates Jesus' truth and divinity. It is prophetic and it is evidence of His death, burial, resurrection, and, love for His church. I agree with the author of the prayer following the scripture. What has been shared here is an excellent example of the scriptures power to teach.

      Continue to believe i your marriage. Remember, that what the Lord put together no one can take apart. You have the upper hand, Go back and start remembering those things that made him fall in love with you. At times life gets in the way and we begin to put the people we love last. I believe that you will win because you have put the Lord to work for your marriage. You do the possible and let the Lord do the impossible. Be Bless Evelyn

  10. Miriam Ramirez
    Thank you very much for the prayer and for this verse. It is very powerful. I am a believer, my mother and sister who lives with my mom, but fear took over because her grandson who at one time was involved in occult activities now wants out, but it is very difficult as he needs deliverance... Thank you very much for all your help.. I did call several prayer lines for the same thing as my mother voice sounded very concerned and afraid, and i just spoke with her now and she sound much better, i told her we were praying for her.
    • MOP

  13. Steph
    Thank you for posting this. I was answering my daughter's question in reference to "Hedge of angels". I came across your page, and it's exactly what I needed!
  14. cyndy
    How dare you say this is a prayer for Christians only? David, the psalmist, a Jew wrote this. This is a prayer of the IDF in Israel also. I pray this over my non Christian friends too. Everyone needs prayers especially those who do not believe in God.
