Meaning of Psalm 91 Prayer
Psalm 91 is a protection scripture and God’s covenant for divine sanctuary. It covers every danger that a human being can possibly encounter—natural disasters, disease, illness, crime, and any threat that a person or his/her family can face. The Psalm 91 prayer is the Almighty’s way of revealing to us that whoever comes and seeks refuge in Him will be rescued from calamity and destruction.
The Psalm 91 prayer is filled with the kindness and might of God. It contains assurances that will create an environment of safety and well-being in our lives and our homes.
Psalm 91 starts with having an intimate relationship with God (verse 1). It is followed by a declaration (verse 2) which we should say out loud as it affirms our belief in our Almighty Creator and turns God’s word into a powerful weapon of defense.
Psalm 91 talks about the snares that the enemy sets to trap and harm us (verse 3). We should have a loving relationship with our Savior and listen to His voice and He will save us from all predicaments, temptations, and epidemic diseases (verse 3 and 4). God shields us and hides us in His secret place (verse 4) when we believe in His word. The enemy cannot see us. He can see only God and no one can stand against the Creator of the universe.
The night is a time of terrors-robberies, sudden attacks, unexpected incursions of enemies, pestilences, and treason. Evil forces are always more active in the nighttime (verses 5 and 6). If we are with God, we will lay down in peace and sleep quietly. During the day, we will be safe from the arrow of the angel of death and attacks on our properties and potential accidents (verses 5 and 6).
Our God is the Supreme Being, who will shield us from natural calamities and disasters. He will protect us from inclement weather conditions and insect infestations. We will have great security amid danger if we believe in our Lord and Savior. We will not be afraid and our faith will keep us grounded when everything is falling around us (verse 7). We will only see the reward of the wicked, the judgment of God upon them, which is a just punishment for their sins (verse 8). We should not look upon it with delight but be grateful to God that we have been saved by His mercy and glorify Him as the righteous judge.
God’s promises are always true, and we must have faith in them, no matter what situations we are facing. Belief in God’s supernatural power and His faithfulness to fulfill His promises is a major condition for God’s protection. We have to trust in God first, only then we will able to witness the miracle. Whatever happens around us, troubles and afflictions, nothing will befall us if we set our love upon God (verse 9). Our homes will be shielded by God’s infinite power and love (verse10). His commitment and dedication to our well-being are unparalleled.
God assigns the angels to protect His loved ones. Angels watch carefully over all the interests of the believers and secure the elected ones who dwell in God. They carefully discharge the duties imposed upon by the Almighty One. Angels are renowned for their strength and power, and they take tender care of the saints, bearing them up in life and at death carrying their souls to Abraham’s bosom. Submitting to the will of God, angels carry us up lest we fall into any calamity or distress or hurt or mischief (verses 11 and 12).
We shall be safe even when we face the fiercest, strongest, and stealthy animals. They will not touch or hurt us and we will stomp upon them if we have God on our side (verse 13). Christ trampled the great dragon, the old serpent, called the evil one under His feet when He was crucified on the cross bearing the sins of the world. We shall trample upon the evil forces with impunity by the blood of Christ (verse 13).
When we love God and cling to Him in our thoughts and deeds amidst all the distractions of daily life, He will deliver us and help us to escape from the strain and stress of the world. We should acknowledge God in all our ways and recognize His authority over our lives. He will protect us and set us in a high place (verse 14). God will answer us when we call on Him with a sincere heart. He will be with us in times of distress and afflictions. He will bring us to safety and lift our heads high. God will honor us if we humbly and faithfully serve him and honor Him in all aspects of our lives (verse 15).
The last promise of protection is that we will have a satisfying, long life. God wants us to live long and strong (verse 16). Whatever struggles we go through here on earth, Christ will help us overcome them. Our salvation is guaranteed because Christ our High Priest is at the right hand of God the Father, making intercession for us. Christ gives us hope beyond death, and we can look forward to eternal life as Christ redeemed us through His blood. Christ is our salvation, and only through Him can we gain new life and hope (verse 16).
