Whenever it comes to praying for my family, one of the biggest things that I pray for is protection. I pray that God would protect our baby boy while he is still growing in my womb and for my husband’s health as well. If you’ve been a GLL reader for a while then you know that my husband has type 1 diabetes. While it is manageable, it is never easy to deal with and I often worry that his blood sugar will go too high or too low while he is at work, or even scarier, while he is driving. He checks his number multiple times a day, but there is always a chance of it going to high or too low. As his wife, you can imagine how much this freaks me out!
One thing that I know is that God is always good and that He has always provided for us and kept Brian healthy. Sometimes it helps to pray scripture whenever you are praying and these 20 verses are perfect for praying whenever you need protection.
