I love animals, so as I was driving to work one day about 7 years ago, I could hear gunshots.
I immediately thought of the deer in the area and their protection. So I prayed for the deer, that God would “hide them from the hunters”.
My love for the deer is not only their beauty, but they have taught me a lot. The LORD has used them as object lessons in dreams and visions. Deer are the overcomers / remnant warriors.
Think about it, almost all areas of the world have a type of deer, so they have had to become adaptable over time and learned to survive despite what has been around them. There are not many animals like that. BUT, OVERCOMERS ARE!
So, God said, “You need to pray that for yourself, that I hide you from the hunters.”
At that time, there wasn’t all the events going on that are presently going on in the world, so I was puzzled by what He had told me.
When I shared His comment to me with others, they also had no clue of what The LORD was talking about.
So I went to The LORD in prayer and then began reading about David hiding from Saul, as Saul was the “hunter” and David was his prey.
Then He had me read Jeremiah, who was so persecuted by his own people. I was getting the picture. So as I went into scripture, The LORD began showing me specific scripture to use and told me to adapt it for my use as persecution would be increasing for everyone.
Many nations have gone through persecution for years, however with the enemy’s increased attacks against all things of God, there is a greater need for us as the body of Christ to RISE UP, and not only pray for ourselves, but for others in other nations, as well as to pray more fervently for our President in the USA and leaders across the world.
As I said I’ve adapted it, which means I’ve left out chapter and verse numbers, changed verb tenses, added pronouns and names, so I can read the scripture as a prayer to The LORD.
I’ve recently had to add more scripture to it, as I do periodically, so here goes.
LORD, HIDE US [President Trump, his family and the Godly ones protecting them and their families, me, my physical and spiritual family, [my BELOVED and his/ her family], loved ones, prayer partners, animals/ pets, the innocents, and Christians everywhere] FROM THE HUNTERS —
[use those people groups applicable for your situation and if led, continue inserting their names below]
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I [We] declare of The LORD: He alone is my [our] refuge, my [our] place of safety; He is my [our] God, and I am [We are] trusting Him. For He will rescue you [me/us] from every trap and protect you [me/us] from the fatal plague. He will shield you [me/us] with His wings. He will shelter you [me/us] with His feathers. His faithful promises are your [my/our] armor and protections.
Do [ I/We will] not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor fear the dangers of the day, nor dread the plague that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your [my/our] side, though ten thousand are dying around you [me/us], these evils will not touch you [me/us], But you [I/We ] will see it with your [my/our] eyes; you [I/We] will see how the wicked are punished.
If you [I/We will] make The LORD your [my/our] refuge, if you [I/We will] make the MOST HIGH your [my/our] shelter, no evil will conquer you [me/us]; no plague will come near your [my/our] dwelling. For He orders His [Holy] angels to protect you [me/us] wherever you [I/We] go. They will hold you [me/us] with their hands to keep you [me/us] from striking your [my/our] foot on a stone. You [I/We] will trample down lions and poisonous snakes; you [I/We] will crush fierce lions and serpents under your [my/our] feet!
The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love Me. I will protect those who trust in My Name.
When they call on Me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue them and honor them. I will satisfy them with a long life and give them My Salvation.”
Hear my [our] Voice[s], O God, in my[our] complaint; guard and preserve my [our] life [lives] from the terror of the enemy. Hide me [us] from the secret counsel and conspiracy of the ungodly, from the scheming of evildoers, Who whet their tongues like a sword, who aim venomous words like arrows, Who shoot from ambush at the blameless man [or woman]; suddenly do they shoot at him [or her], without self-reproach or fear. They encourage themselves in an evil purpose, they talk of laying snares secretly; they say, Who will discover us? They think out acts of injustice and say, We have accomplished a well-devised thing! For the inward thought of each one [is unsearchable] and his [and her] heart[s] is [are] deep.
But God will shoot an unexpected arrow at them; and suddenly shall they be wounded. And they will be made to stumble, their own tongues turning against them; all who gaze upon them will shake their heads and flee away.
And all men [and women] shall [reverently] fear and be in awe; and they will declare the work of God, for they will wisely consider and acknowledge that it is His doing. The [uncompromisingly] righteous shall be glad in The LORD and shall trust and take refuge in Him; and all the upright in heart shall glory and offer praise. HALLELUJAH !
DELIVER US, O LORD, from evil men [and women]; preserve me [us] from violent men [and women]; They devise mischief in their hearts; continually gather together and stir up wars. They sharpen their tongues like a serpent’s; adders’ poison is under their lips. Keep me [us], O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me [us] from the violent men [and women] who have purposed to thrust aside my [our] steps. The proud have hidden a snare for me [us]; they have spread cords as a net by the wayside, they have set traps for me [us].
I [We] said to The LORD, YOU are my [our] GOD; give ear to the voice of my [our] supplications, O LORD. O GOD The LORD, the STRENGTH of my [our] salvation , YOU have covered my [our] head[s] in the day of battle.
Grant not, O LORD, the desire of the wicked; further not their wicked plot and device, lest they exalt themselves. Those who are fencing me [us] in, raise their heads; may the mischief of their own lips and the very things they desire for me [us] come upon them. Let burning coals fall upon them; let them be cast into the fire, into floods of water or deep water pits, from which they shall not rise. Let not a man [or women]; of slanderous tongue be established in the earth; let evil hunt the violent man [and woman] to overthrow him [or her] [let calamity follow his [or her] evildoings].
I [We] know and rest in confidence upon it, that The LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and will secure justice for the poor and needy [of His believing in children]. Surely the [uncompromisingly] righteous shall give thanks to YOUR name; the upright shall dwell in YOUR presence (before your very face).
Give heed to me [us], LORD; listen to [what] my [our] adversaries [are plotting to do to me [us] – and intercede].
But, O LORD of hosts, Who judges rightly and justly, Who tests the heart and the mind, let me [us] see Your vengeance on them, for to You, I [We] have revealed and committed my [our] cause [rolling it upon You.]
Therefore, thus says The LORD. “about the [unholy] men [and women] of Anathoth [Jeremiah’s hometown] [of the nations] who seek your [our] life [lives] [Jeremiah] and say, Prophesy not in the name of The LORD, that you [we] die not by our hands – Therefore, thus says The LORD of Hosts, “Behold I will punish them. Their young men will die by the sword, their sons and their daughters will die by famine; And there will be no remnant [of the conspirators] left, for I will bring evil and calamity upon the [unholy] men [and women] of Anathoth [of the nations] in the year of their punishment.”
But The LORD is with me[us] as a mighty and terrible One; therefore my [our] persecutors will stumble; and they will not overcome [me / us]. They will be utterly put to shame, for they will not deal wisely or prosper [in their schemes]; their eternal dishonor will never be forgotten. But, O LORD of hosts, You Who try the righteous, Who see the heart and the mind, let me [us] see Your vengeance on them, for to You have I revealed and committed my [our] cause.
[But now] You have set up a banner for those who fear and worshipfully revere You [to which they may flee from the bow], a standard displayed because of the truth. That Your Beloved ones may be delivered, saved with Your right hand and answer us [or me].
Sing to The LORD! Praise The LORD!!! For He has delivered the life of the poor and needy from the hands of evildoers.
Blessed be ADONAI, who did not leave us to be a prey for their teeth! We escaped like a bird from the hunter’s trap! The trap is broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of ADONAI, the maker of heaven and earth.
LORD, I [We] release Your GLORY as a hedge of protection, to keep President Trump, his family and the Godly ones protecting them and their families, me, my family, [my BELOVED and his/her family], my loved ones, and prayer partners from harm, danger, accidents, premature death, and destruction, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
