Prayer for Protection

Almighty God, Creator of Heaven and earth,
You have dominion over all that is known and unknown,
over all that is seen and unseen;
we marvel at all the works of Your hands,
and rejoice in the beauty of all You have made.
In a spirit of confident faith, we ask You:
protect from all harm those who now turn to You in faith.
We ask Your special blessing, and Your shield of protection,
upon all who are here, upon all who are united with us in prayer this night,
and upon all our families and loved ones,
along with our property and possessions.
We also ask for Your blessing upon all our unblessed religious articles,
rosaries, medals, and other sacramentals,
that they may be a source of grace and of spiritual and physical protection.
We pray for the conversion of all sinners,
especially those who will soon leave this world to be judged by You,
and we pray for all the suffering and persecuted members of Your Church
throughout the world.
Please hear the prayers of all the saints on our behalf,
And send Your holy angels to guide us, guard us, and assist us.
We ask all this in the Name of Jesus, Your Son,
Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
