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 nkjv

Lord Jesus, we pray for the Departments of Justice, Defense, and Homeland Security and the men and women through whom justice and protection is administered.  We ask You, oh Lord, to uphold justice and mercy in our land and to keep us safe – that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.  We declare with our mouths that Your people dwell safely in this land, and we prosper abundantly.


Father, our petition is that terrorism in the heavenlies and on earth be stopped before it happens and that the plans of the enemy will be thwarted even before they are carried out.  Jesus, You have given us the authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and NOTHING – NO THING – shall in any way harm us.  We take authority over a spirit of fear, for we have the Spirit of God.  We shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, the arrow of day, the pestilence in darkness, nor the destruction and sudden death at noonday.  We establish ourselves, our leaders, and our people in righteousness, for evil shall not come near us.

Mighty God, we petition You, according to Psalm 91, for the safety of our military personnel.  We ask heaven to turn our troops into peacekeeping force – use them as instruments of righteousness to defeat the plans of the devil.  Father, provide for and protect the families of our armed forces.  We plead the blood of Jesus over our troops and their families.  Provide a support system to undergird, uplift, and edify those who have been left to raise children by themselves.  As children of the Most High God, we enforce the triumphant victory of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Lord, let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
