Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him. -Psalm 91:14-15
Most High God, what a comfort and joy it is knowing that we can rest in the shadow of the Almighty. We thank You for being our refuge at all times. Even when circumstances are fearful and dark, You are there, giving us joy, for You are a very present help in times of trouble.
We lift up Your children who are preaching the gospel in difficult and dark places. May they be reminded, that You are there with them. Give them boldness and wisdom as they share the message of the way, the truth, and the life. We ask for angelic intervention and that through signs and wonders, You would extinguish all the threats and flaming arrows of the evil one. We ask that You would deliver them from death and prison, so that everyone who opposes the Gospel will know that You are the one true God, and turn to worship You. Move in the power of Your Spirit and let the modern day Sauls of the region become the Pauls of Your kingdom in this season.
We declare Your word from Psalm 33:16-19: "No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength. A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength, it cannot save. But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine."
We look to You, and You alone for salvation and deliverance of the harvest workers of the high places. We praise You for Your protection. "You are a 'sun and shield'; bestowing favor and honor; You do not withhold from those whose walk is blameless" (Psalm 84:11). In the name of Jesus we pray, amen.
