Prayer to be protected from adversity

Philip Kosloski - published on 10/27/21

Ask God to protect you and your family from adversity, so that you may serve him with freedom.

While adversity can often be a good thing, sometimes it can negatively impact us or our family, depending on how we handle it.

We are weak human beings, and when we experience difficulties, we should cry out to God for strength.

Here is a short prayer asking God to protect us from adversity, so that we can remain in his service.

Almighty and merciful God,
graciously keep from us all adversity,
so that, unhindered in mind and body alike,
we may pursue in freedom of heart
the things that are yours.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever
