You can pray this prayer when you need protection. This prayer is inspired by Psalm 27. The world tries to convince us that the peace and prosperity of man will save us. But our soul yearns for an eternal answer. The only real security we have is in Christ Jesus.
...even when we're being bombarded by thoughts that we don't want to keep popping into our minds: we can offer up those thoughts to God in prayer and ask Him to help us identify what's really bothering us, and what we really desire, that we may be seeking in the wrong way.
Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for keeping us safe in Your hands, and close to Your heart. We're thankful for your Word which reminds us how important it is to stand guard of our home, to watch over our marriage, and to protect our hearts from the enemy. We can't do this alone, Lord. We need Your help. We need Your power and grace. We need Your strength. We need You to lead us in wisdom to safety.
