Psalm 91: A Prayer of Protection (Updated 11/18/2023)

With today's growing concern over the spread of war and pestilence (i.e. the Coronavirus), I felt inspired - strongly compelled, in fact - to post this Psalm for readers to recite.  It has been particularly valued for centuries by Jews and Christians, alike, as a prayer of deliverance and protection; I was surprised by how it fit the pandemic situation perfectly... so ARM AND SHIELD YOURSELVES SPIRITUALLY BY PRAYING IT DAILY.


He who dwells in the secret
place of the Most High will rest in
the shadow of the Almighty. I will
say of Yahweh, “He is my refuge and
my fortress; my God, in whom
I trust.”

For he will deliver you from
the snare of the fowler and from
the deadly pestilence. He will
cover you with his feathers. Under
his wings you will take refuge.
His faithfulness is your
shield and rampart.

You shall not be afraid of
the terror by night, nor of the
arrow that flies by day, nor of
the pestilence that walks in
darkness, nor of the destruction
that wastes at noonday. A thousand
may fall at your side and ten
thousand at your right hand; but
it will not come near you. You
will only look with your eyes
and see the recompense of
the wicked.

Because you have made Yahweh
your refuge, and the Most High
your dwelling place, no evil shall
happen to you, neither shall any
plague come near your dwelling. For
he will put his angels in charge
of you to guard you in all your
ways.  They will bear you up in
their hands so that you won’t dash
your foot against a stone. You will
tread on the lion and cobra. You
will trample the young lion
and the serpent underfoot.

“Because he has set his love
on me, therefore I will deliver
him. I will set him on high because
he has known my name. He will call
on me and I will answer him. I will
be with him in trouble. I will
deliver him and honor him. I will
satisfy  him with long life and
show him my salvation.”
