Find refuge under God’s wings
This month’s latest series, Positioned in His Protection (4-sermon series), will fortify your heart with God’s promises of protection. No matter how dangerous the world gets, no matter how many reasons there are to be afraid, your heavenly Father wants you to know that you can live fear-free, safe, and secure under His wings.
Just turn on the news or open the papers and you’ll find reasons to be afraid. You’ll see senseless terrorist attacks on innocent lives, epidemics affecting entire communities, political and economic turmoil throwing people’s livelihoods into uncertainty. Is there anywhere in this dangerous world that we can find real safety and protection?
God’s Word tells us that there is. And you don’t need to move to another neighborhood, another state, or another country to get there.
Is there something holding you back from believing that you and your family are covered by God’s protection? Is there a nagging voice at the back of your mind telling you that with all your failings, there’s no way you that you can expect God to protect you?
My friend, under the old covenant, it’s true that God’s people had to earn His protection. But we are no longer living under the old covenant—we have a new and living way (see Heb. 10:20)!
If you’ve been greatly discouraged in the area of protection, please let me share this with you. Maybe you have experienced a painfully difficult or even tragic event. Maybe you’re thinking, “Pastor Prince, I claimed the promise of God’s protection before and it didn’t work.”
My dear friend, I understand. I know what it’s like to feel powerless in the face of a tragedy. I have felt the indescribable pain of losing a child. So I know that there are moments in our lives when doubt, fear, and discouragement are all too real.
Real life stories of God’s protection
Is fear telling you that divine protection is just a comforting thought to cope with the chaos that’s flooding the news?
My friend, God’s protection is real and robust. Countless believers from all over the world have written in to share how the Lord saved them from horrific accidents, natural disasters, and deadly diseases.
My team has chosen a few of these real life stories for you to read and be encouraged. I pray that faith arises in your heart as you see how the same God who watches over these precious lives is watching over you too!
Healed of White Blood Cell Infection after Hearing Psalm 91 Sermon
My mother was critically ill and was admitted to the intensive care unit [with] only a fifteen percent chance of recovering…
Protected from December 2017 Lilac Fire
In December 2017, my mom’s home was under serious threat by the Lilac Fire that consumed over 4,000 acres of land in a matter of hours. There were many tall trees and foliage all over her two-acre property, and her home was directly in the center of the flames that were closing in.
When we received news that her neighbor’s house was on fire and that the flames had also reached her property, it all looked hopeless. The barn above my mom’s property also caught fire. I fought to stay in faith as my husband and I prayed for protection over her home.
I prayed that God would cover her house with a supernatural blanket of water so that nothing would burn. We also read and prayed the powerful words of Psalm 91:10—“No harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.”
When we awoke the next morning, we weren’t sure what news we would receive. Let me tell you: God does answer prayers. Even though my mom’s two-acre property had been burned, the fire did not touch her house! I cried tears of relief and joy. It’s truly a miracle from heaven.

Unhurt in Serious Car Accident
I have always loved Psalms 91 but my love for it intensified after I read The Prayer of Protection by Pastor Joseph Prince. I love it so much that I taught it to my eleven-year-old daughter and eight-year-old son. Every night for about a year now, we pray the prayer of protection over ourselves and our family.
One day, I was driving my daughter to school when a truck ran the red light and hit our car, causing it to spin around. What was miraculous was that my daughter and I were both able to open our doors and climb out of the car. When we looked at the car, the front and back were completely damaged but nothing happened to either of our doors. My Abba gave His angels charge over us to keep us in all our ways!
When people came on the scene and saw the damage to our car, they were amazed that we weren’t hurt. My response was that God is my Daddy!
Thank you, Pastor Prince, for being the humble vessel being used to impact the world with the grace of God. I am alive today because you taught me that I am the righteousness of God in Christ, and I can have a hopeful expectation of good.

Healed of White Blood Cell Infection after Hearing Psalm 91 Sermon
My mother was critically ill and was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) where she stayed for ten days. The doctors told us she had only a fifteen percent chance of recovering, as her total leukocyte (white blood cell) count was increasing day by day. I couldn’t help remembering how my father had the same symptoms before he succumbed to septicemia.
My sister, brother, and I partook of the Holy Communion daily and prayed for our mother’s speedy recovery. I’d saved a sermon of Joseph Prince preaching Psalm 91 on my phone and played it for my mother daily. I also prayed for her protection.
We began to see an improvement in my mother’s condition. Her leukocyte count gradually came down and her temperature subsided. As the sermon was played in the ICU ward, the other patients in the ICU also started recovering to the point they did not need intensive care.
I thank God for His palpable blessing! It was so evident especially now that my mother has recovered and is back home.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for healing my mother! And I’m thankful for Joseph Prince for spreading God’s Word.

No Longer Bound by Fear, Able to Enjoy Time outside Home
For years I was bound by anxiety and fear. I feared things that had not even occurred and would see in my mind the possibilities of them occurring. This kept me from leaving the house and enjoying time with my family. I had trouble going to work unless heavily medicated. When I no longer had insurance to get my medications, I had to quit my job.
I found Pastor Prince on television one early morning a few years ago, but only caught his messages once in a while. Being a believer in Christ, I prayed but didn’t want to trouble the Lord with my issues.
A number of months ago, I began to watch Pastor Prince’s program every night. One message in particular spoke to me. He preached that “as Jesus is, so am I in this world.” There is no pain, no fear, no issues in Jesus, so there are none in me. I prayed that night telling Jesus that as He is—not anxious or fearful—so am I.
Since that night, I have not been anxious once. I am no longer bound by fear as I rest in God’s blessings. And I have been able to leave the house and spend time with my family on walks and dinners out.
God is great! I praise Him and thank Him for giving Pastor Prince the words to finally reach me, and for His Holy Spirit filling me and bringing me closer to Jesus.
