A Collect for Protection
Almighty Lord, who watches over your people from on high, overshadow us and grant us refuge from the trouble and wrongs of this world. Be our shield and salvation, and open our lips to shout your praise in thanks and joy at your protection and might, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
'You who live in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shadow of the Almighty, will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust."' - Ps. 91:1-2
