Scripture Reading: Psalms 125:1–4
“They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth forever,” Psalm 125:1.
Father God, we pray that your name be forever blessed in our lives. We ask in the name of Jesus for your blessings, mercies, amazing grace, and great deliverance. Lord, your people are crying, your people are calling on you to deliver us from everything that is oppressing, everything that is causing us not to be who we are meant to be, everything that is shortchanging us. O Lord, let our lives honour and praise you in the name of Jesus.
The Word of God assures us that we can trust in the Lord. “As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even forever. For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous;
lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity. Do good, O Lord, unto those that be good and to them that are upright in their hearts,” Psalm 125:2–4.
Let us pray today that the Lord’s protection will be round about us as the mountains are round about Jerusalem.
Father God, I pray for perpetual protection for all your children who are exposed to danger. Lord we pray for spiritual, physical, and financial protection in the name of Jesus. King of kings and Lord of lords, in your mercy we ask that you work out a deliverance from the rod of the wicked. Father, many are oppressed by the actions of the wicked; many are working under the oppression of a wicked boss who has authority over them. Lord, today we pray that you break that rod in the name of Jesus. We claim the promise in your Word in Psalm 125:3 that says the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous.
Pray with me: “Lord, God Almighty, divinely protect me perpetually as the mountains are round about Jerusalem perpetually in the name of Jesus. In your mercy and in your love, deliver me from the rod of the wicked. Let the rod of the wicked not fall upon my lot in the name of Jesus. In every area, in all that concerns me Lord, deliver me and mine from the rod of the wicked in Jesus name.”
Lord God Almighty, we humbly come before you today and ask for your spiritual, physical, and financial protection in the name of Jesus. Protect us from the actions of the wicked; from any harm that would befall us, especially from those in authority over us. And Father, in your mercy, give us the grace to think before we speak. Protect us from ourselves, O Lord, set a watch before our mouth. In your amazing love and endless mercy, Father, govern what crosses our lips. Amen.
