I hope I am not overthinking this, but with almost 50 percent of England professing to be atheistic and anti-Christ, it is not a stretch of the imagination to realize that evil does exist in the world today more than at any time in the past.
We are entering into dangerous times. Saying daily or even hourly prayers of protection not only makes sense, but it vital to our spiritual, mental, and physical health. The most potent prayer, which can be said almost continually is the Jesus Prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us. OR
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, through the prayers of the Most Pure Mother of God, have mercy on us and save us.
Prayer of Protection
Heavenly Father, I humbly beseech Thee, please
protect and deliver me from every evil past,
present, and to come.
Protect and deliver me from vain thoughts and evil
Heavenly Father, I earnestly entreat Thee, please
send Thy Holy Angels to protect and deliver me
from all demons, certain persons, and certain
circumstances that would seek to either disgrace,
dishonor, or slander me, or separate me from my
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and His Holy
Heavenly Father, please protect and deliver me
from every evil eye, every jealous eye, and
every suspicious glance of the eye.
I ask this through the intercession of the Most
Pure, Blessed, and Ever-Virgin Mary, Saint (my
patron saint's name), and in the name of Thy
Son, our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ.
