How to Pray Psalm 91
“For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.” (Psalm 91:11)
This prayer is a paraphrase of the Scriptural text. As we pray this prayer today, may God lift our hearts and encourage our souls as we continue to traverse through a difficult year. No matter how hopeless our circumstances seem, let us not forget our God is the God of miracles, and Commander of angel armies.
Most High God, I dwell in Your shelter and abide in Your shadow.
You, LORD, are my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.
You are faithful to deliver me from my enemies and heal me from illness.
You will cover me, and under Your wings I will find refuge; Your faithfulness will be my shield.
I will not fear the terror of the night, the calamity of each day, or the destruction and injustice rampant in the world.
Though instability rages all around me, Your peace, the peace that surpasses all understanding, will envelop and comfort me.
I proclaim, You are my refuge, LORD, and I make You, the Most High, the prominence of my heart.
No harm will over take me, no disaster will come near me, as I stand firm in Your armor.
You will command Your angels concerning me, to guard me in all my ways. They will lift me up in their hands to protect and guard me from stumbling and falling.
You battle my enemies before I need to lift a finger or say a word. I vow to live my life in submission to You daily.
Because I love You, LORD, You promise to rescue me. You will protect me, for I acknowledge Your name. I will call on You, and You will answer me.
You will be with me in trouble,
You will deliver me and honor me.
In Christ, I witness Your salvation, and will live eternally with You, LORD my God.
In Jesus’ Name,
