Men ought always to pray, and not to faint.

A Prayer For Protection

{Based on Psalm 17}

Hear my cause, O Lord; listen to my cry for help. I have examined by heart, my prayer is honest; I’m on the level. Father, You are holy and just. You see things as they are whereas we see them as they appear to be. Your eyes can detect a bad motive or an evil heart. If You try my faith; if you put me to the test, there must be a reason. If You are testing my son, there is a reason, a good reason. Our problem at present does not involve others, it is not about what others have done to us. No one has mistreated us–our problem pertains to our faith and our personal walk with You. Can we trust You in the darkness? Can we believe in You when heaven is silent and our prayers are not being answered? I call upon You to break the silence–speak to us. In some wondrous or simple way, reaffirm Your love for us. Perhaps it would be a simple recollection of the cross and what Jesus did for us there. Although He was abused and mistreated, He did not respond in kind, He did not curse His enemies or retaliate in any form. During heavens silence, He showed Himself weak in order to save us. Father, keep the cross ever on our minds. It should be the only reminder we need of Your love for us. Please guard my son, hide him in the shadow of your wings. I am not asking for riches or honor, only for his peace of mind. Jesus was surrounded by those who hated Him. They mocked and ridiculed Him as He suffered for our sins. We are surrounded by friends who love us and our praying for us. Deliver us from our fears and fill us with Your peace. Someday LORD, and it will not be long, we will awaken and see Your face–when we do, we will see righteousness and peace and our hearts with be satisfied. In Jesus name, we pray! Amen.
