Father, I praise You that I dwell in the secret place of the Most High and
that I shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty (whose power no foe can withstand).
I will say of You, Lord, “The Lord is my refuge and my fortress, my
God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I confidently trust.” For then You will deliver me from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence. Then You will cover me with your pinions (feathers), and under Your wings shall I trust and
find refuge. Your truth and Your faithfulness are a shield and buckler.
I shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow (the evil
plots and slanders of the wicked) that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks the darkness, nor the destruction and
sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday.
A thousand may fall at my side, and ten thousand at my right hand, but it
shall not come near me. Only a spectator shall I be…inaccessible in the Secret Place of the Most High as
I witness the reward of the wicked.
Because I have made You, Lord, my refuge and the Most High my dwelling place,
there shall no evil befall me, nor any plague or calamity come near my tent. For You give Your angels special charge
over me, to accompany and defend and preserve me in all my ways of obedience and service. Your angels shall bear me up on
their hands, lest I dash my foot against a stone.
I shall tread upon the lion and the adder; the young lion and the serpent
shall I trample underfoot. Because I have set my love upon You, therefore will You deliver me on high, because I know and
understand Your name.
I have personal knowledge and understanding of Your Mercy, Love and Kindness.
I trust and rely on You, knowing You will never forsake me, no never. I shall call upon You and You will answer me. You will
be with me in trouble. You will deliver me and honor me. With long life will You satisfy me and show me Your salvation.
