Bible Verses to Pray for Protection and Against Fear

The most important thing to remember is that God answers prayers according to His word.  Praying for Protection is easy once you know what scriptures to pray and where to find them.  You also need to identify the root of the problem.  Why are you in need of protection?  Is it that you are afraid of something or someone? Are you in need of protection from a spiritual attack?  Is it that you are in need of protection to keep you safe from unemployment?  Finding out the source will help you to determine what you need to pray.

Usually we seek a hedge of protection when there is fear, a lack of feeling secure or intimidation.  The following scriptures will help you to identify the root and you will see which bible verses you need to pray.

Remember, God honors his word.  So, all you need to do is pray the scriptures as they appear.

For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior: I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for you.”
