The Prayer Of Protection: Living Fearlessly In Dangerous Times – Review
Before Jesus died, one of the greatest gifts that He gave His disciples and us, His followers, was the gift of peace:
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. – John 14:27
Jesus told us not to let our hearts be troubled or afraid because He would be sending us the Holy Spirit – a Helper and Advocate who would teach us all things and bring to remembrance all that Jesus taught while He was still with us.
But in spite of this great gift and promise – and in spite of the fact that throughout the Bible, God tells us to “Fear Not!” in some way, shape or form 365 times – many of us struggle with some form of anxiety, dread, worry, phobia and terror on a daily basis.
That’s why Joseph Prince wrote The Prayer Of Protection: Living Fearlessly In Dangerous Times.
The Prayer Of Protection and the accompanying Study Guide are designed to help us:
- Expel every trace of fear from our hearts.
- Learn what the Bible says about the divine protection of God.
- Anchor us in God’s protective love.
- Learn how to pray the prayer of protection found in Psalm 91.
- Receive encouragement from people around the world who have experienced God’s protection firsthand.
The Prayer Of Protection provides us with an exposition of Psalm 91 – one of my favorite Psalms in the Bible. It’s a Psalm that I’ve often turned to for peace, safety, and comfort during my own personal times of anxiety and fear – a Psalm that has given me a greater understanding of who God is, how He provides for us, how He loves and protects us – a Psalm that has tremendously increased my faith and confidence in the Lord.
Psalm 91 is a 16-verse Psalm that opens like this:
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.” – Psalm 91:1-2
In The Prayer Of Protection, the author walks us through each of the verses by looking at key words in the original language as well as other passages and cultural references so we understand the Psalm in depth. He also provides us with tips on how we can effectively pray and apply this Psalm in our lives as well as testimonies of people who have personally experienced the power of God’s protective hand.
Even though The Prayer Of Protection is not written as a devotional, I am finding it useful to break down the book into small, devotional readings so that I can fully study, reflect upon and apply each portion of the book.
The companion Study Guide is a great companion guide to the book. It truly helps you to study, reflect upon, remember and apply all of the truths and promises you are studying in the book!
If you are struggling with fear, anxiety, night terrors and other issues where learning how to pray for God’s protection would benefit you, then The Prayer Of Protection is for you!

The Prayer Of Protection Devotional is now available and it is everything that I hoped it would be! This readings in this beautifully illustrated pages of this 90-day devotional take us through every aspect of Psalm 91 and include word studies, supporting Scriptures, powerful testimonies, and inspirational thoughts and prayers.
You’ll find that The Prayer Of Protection Devotional is the perfect book to reflect on when anxious thoughts fill your mind, and a wonderful bedside companion and accompaniment to your Bible Journaling.
If you are striving to obey God by walking in faith, not fear, I recommend this entire series to you!
