Prayer of protection

Sometimes when in deep despair or turmoil, the standard affirmative prayer can feel a little lacking. I ‘m not saying that affirmative prayer IS lacking, but it has been my experience at times that the standard 5-step (or 6 or 7 step) Spiritual Mind Treatment can feel a little prescribed in times of deepest fear and great despair.

Enter Joseph Murphy. His writings and lectures are filled with demonstrations of prayer that intercedes in a way that not only produced great results time and again, but that feel a little more targeted (to me anyway).Refuge (feather)

If you, like me, feel that there is some room for more “oomph” to the prayers we feel compelled to offer when awoken in the middle of the night with a nagging feeling; or when concerned with the immediate safety and security of a loved one that is far away from us, I offer this (only slightly) edited prayer from the archives of Joseph Murphy.

“(person’s name) is known in Divine Mind. S/he’s in the secret place of the Most High and s/he abides in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord – God is (person’s name) refuge and fortress – in God I place my trust. I know with certainty that (person’s name) is surrounded by the sacred circle of God’s eternal love, and the whole armor of God surrounds her/him and s/he is watched over by the overshadowing Presence of God. (person’s name) is immunized and filled to overflowing with the Divine!”

Similarly, we can use this prayer for ourselves, as follows:

“I Am known in Divine Mind. I Am in the secret place of the Most High and I abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord – God is my refuge and fortress – in God I place my trust. I know with certainty that I Am is surrounded by the sacred circle of God’s eternal love, and the whole armor of God surrounds me. I Am watched over by the overshadowing Presence of God; immunized and filled to overflowing with the Divine!”

Whether we are praying for our children, grandchildren, other family or friends – this is a powerful prayer of protection. Use it as often as you need.

Blessings – and so it is.
