Military/Law Enforcement/Firefighters Prayer

Declare Psalm 91 Over Our Troops, Law Enforcement and Firefighters

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my god, in whom I trust. Surely he will save you form the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.  He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge.  His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.  You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, not the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.  A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.  You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you make the Most High your dwelling- even the Lord, who is my refuge, then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.  For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.  You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.  “Because he loves me” says the Lord, I will rescue him;  I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him.  I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.”


We Pray and ask the Lord…for the protection of our police and firefighters in our state.  Pray for peace, protection and strength in their homes and marriages. (Psalms 91:1-16)

We Pray and ask the Lord…for angelic protection as they are the first responders in any crisis situation.

We Pray and ask the Lord…for their emotional well being: The mental, physical and emotional aspects are always on high alert. There is a combination of stress and anxiety always at work which can impact the mind in many ways.  Divorce can be a result and forms of escapism which are counter-productive to the mind, body, spirit and soul.

We Pray and ask the Lord…for our police and firefighters to make choices in spontaneous situations that continually arise that are filled with wisdom that will bring forth the greatest good. Wisdom is the right use and exercise of knowledge; quickness of intellect; readiness of apprehension; and dexterity in execution.

We Pray and ask the Lord… they would have compassion for the people they serve. Our police and firefighters are dealing with lives and souls that will face God some day. May they have a heart like Jesus Christ and feel what an individual may be going through at the time, and respond accordingly.

We Pray and ask the Lord…that law enforcement and firefighter personnel would come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as savior.  This is the greatest need of all as salvation is the pathway to resolve all individual problems that may arise.

We Pray and ask the Lord…they would exhibit integrity, honesty and dedication. A virtuous individual is to be highly regarded and respected. Temptations can present situations for any person to fail at some time. May they have spiritual fortitude and strength to be honest, dedicated and individuals of integrity.
