“Be the shield against their foes…”
We have no doubt that the forces of hell will attempt to claim our children. For that reason, Lord, we ask You to protect them while they sleep and in their waking hours. Oh! Loving Father, keep them from eternal harm! Thank You for Psalm 91 that compels us to pray…
May our children dwell in Your shelter and rest in the safety of Your shadow, Oh, Most High. Reveal to them that You are the only refuge and fortress they can trust. Draw them near You and assure them that You will save them from the fowler’s snare and from all deadly pestilence. Cover them, Oh Lord and like a little chick running to its mother, let them find refuge under Your wing in times of trouble. May Your faithfulness be their shield and rampart. We put them into Your loving care knowing that a thousand may fall at their side and ten thousand at their right hand, but it will not come near to them if they make You, the Most High, their refuge. Thank You for taking care them. We know You love them and that You will answer them when they call on Your name.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped…”
