The world is not always a beautiful and happy place. Instead, it is filled with evil, sin, anger and sadness. No matter how hard we may try, we are forced to face the darkness that fills the Earth.
We may see the world as a place to fear and avoid. We are scared to let our children, family and friends go out and experience life without our protection. However, we know this is unrealistic. We know that we cannot control the world, and that we cannot protect our loved ones from everything. We are unable to always protect ourselves.
This is when we must turn to the Lord. We know that God is the ultimate protector. We must surrender our fears to God so that He is able to place His shield over us.
If you are in need of protection, recite these prayers and feel comfort knowing that the Lord is walking by your side.
