Join us in today’s devotion and prayer-
Read the Psalm in your favorite version or in the following KJV and then join us in praying below:
91 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation. (KJV)
Thank you O Lord for the promises you have given to your servants: those of us who are called after the name of your Son Jesus.
You have promised that whoever dwells in your shelter and shadow will be delivered from the snare of the fowler and from deadly pestilence; that you will cover them under your wings and they will find refuge. We claim those promises.
You have also said that you would protect us from the terrors of the night, and the arrows that fly by day but none will come near us; that a thousand may fall at our sides and ten thousand at our right hands. Because we have made the Lord our dwelling place— you have said that you will command your angels concerning us to guard us. Praise your name.
We pray for the light to shine in the darkness; for every motive and skeleton to be revealed. We ask that Sauls who oppose your people and church be turned into Pauls. We ask that Christians rise up under the banner of Jesus and take to the streets for your Kingdom and claim our cities and neighborhoods for your Son Jesus.
We come against fear and sickness in our land; against the voices of hate, violence, and subversion. We pray for revival instead of destruction and peace instead of chaos, healing instead of sickness, justice, real justice that comes only through your Holy Spirit instead of force, freedom instead of tyranny.
Let those under the direction of false philosophies, evil political systems, and religions be released from the binding of the evil one and find the truth in your Son Jesus and the Good News of your eternal kingdom.
Let your kingdom go forth in the midst of the battle and let your Word and Gospel be preached in every nation and tongue including among those who are persecuting and killing Christians. Bind up the prince over Islam and the spirit of the anti-Christ; let tens of millions be converted and become part of your kingdom before that great day when your Son comes again. Let you spirit be released upon all peoples, nations, and tongues in Jesus name.
In Jesus name, Amen.
