A PRAYER FOR GOD’S HELP AND PROTECTION

Psalm 64  { From the: Good News Bible, Today’s Version } Inspirational Reading:

I’m in trouble, God–Listen to my prayer!   I am afraid of my enemies–Save my life!  PROTECT ME FROM THE PLOTS OF THE WICKED, FROM MOBS OF EVIL PEOPLE.  They sharpen their tongues like swords and aim cruel words like arrows. THEY ARE QUICK TO SPREAD THEIR SHAMELESS LIES; they destroy good people with “COWARDLY SLANDER”.  They encourage each other in their EVIL PLOTS; they talk about where they will place their traps.  “No one can see them,” they say.  They make evil plans and say, “WE HAVE PLANNED A PERFECT CRIME.”

THE HUMAN HEART AND MIND ARE A MYSTERY.  BUT GOD SHOOTS HIS ARROWS AT THEM AND SUDDENLY THEY ARE WOUNDED.  He will destroy them because of those words; all who see them will shake their heads. They will all be afraid; they will think about what God has done and tell about his deeds.  ALL RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE WILL REJOICE BECAUSE OF WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE.  THEY WILL FIND SAFETY IN HIM; ALL GOOD PEOPLE WILL PRAISE HIM.

Remember, “as we continue to SOW or praises up to God, He will continue to send his blessings as a harvest for us to REAP.

{ Isaiah 60: 6 }

GREAT CARAVANS OF CAMELS WILL COME, FROM MIDIAN AND EPHAH.  THEY WILL COME FROM SHEBA, BRINGING GOLD AND INCENSE.  ( PEOPLE WILL TELL THE GOOD NEWS OF WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE! )  PRAISE GOD.

GOD OUR PROTECTOR:

INSPIRATIONAL READING:

PSALM  91  { KING JAMES VERSION }

He that dwells in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the almighty.  I will say of the Lord, he is my refuge and my fortress, my God; in him I will trust.  Surely he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the noisome pestilence.  He will cover you with his feathers and under his wings shall you trust: His truth will be your shield and buckler.

You should not be afraid of the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flies by day; nor for the pestilence that walk in darkness; nor for the destruction that waste at noonday. ” A THOUSAND SHALL FALL AT YOUR SIDE AND TEN THOUSAND AT YOUR RIGHT HAND;” BUT IT WILL NOT COME NEAR YOU”.

Only with your eyes shall you behold and see the reward of the wicked.  Because you have made the Lord, which is your refuge, even the most high, your habitation; there shall no evil befall you, neither will any “plague” come near your dwelling.  For he will give his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.  They will bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone. 

YOU WILL TREAD UPON THE LION AND THE ADDER (” a poisonous serpent” or a” sly treacherous person” ): THE YOUNG LION AND THE DRAGON YOU WILL TRAMPLE UNDER YOUR FEET.  Because he has set his love upon me, ”THEREFORE WILL I DELIVER HIM”.  I WILL SET HIM ON HIGH BECAUSE HE HAS KNOWN MY NAME..

He will call upon me and I will answer him: I WILL BE WITH HIM IN TROUBLE; I  WILL DELIVER HIM AND HONOR HIM, WITH LONG LIFE WILL I SATISFY HIM AND SHOW HIM MY SALVATION.

SECOND VERSION FROM :

THE GOOD NEWS BIBLE: “TODAY’S ENGLISH VERSION” { PSALM 91 }

Whoever goes to the Lord for safety, whoever remains under the protection of the Almighty, can say to him, “you are my defender and protector, You are my God; in you I trust.”  He will keep you safe from all hidden dangers and from all deadly diseases.  He will cover you with his wings; you will be safe in his care; his faithfulness will protect and defend you. 

You need not fear any dangers at night or sudden attacks during the day or the plagues that strike in the dark or the evils that kill in daylight.  A THOUSAND MAY FALL DEAD BESIDE YOU, TEN THOUSAND ALL AROUND YOU, BUT YOU WILL NOT BE HARMED.  You will look and see how the wicked are punished.  You have made the Lord your defender, The “Most High” your protector and so no disaster will strike you, NO VIOLENCE WILL COME NEAR YOUR HOME. 

( God will put his angels in charge of you ) to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands, to keep you from hurting your feet on the stones.  You will trample down lions and snakes, fierce lions and poisonous snakes.  God says, “I WILL SAVE THOSE WHO LOVE ME AND WILL PROTECT THOSE WHO ACKNOWLEDGE ME AS LORD.  When they call to me, I will answer them; when they are in trouble, I will be with them.  I will rescue them and honor them.  I will reward them with long life; I WILL SAVE THEM.”
