A blue colored pencil on top of an intricate and colorful design half colored with the title “The Prayer for Protection: A Beloved Prayer Brought to Life”

During World War II, people of all faiths turned to prayer. To offer comfort, Unity minister James Dillet Freeman wrote the “Prayer for Protection,” which still resonates with millions today.

In just five lines, it reminds us that whatever we face, the presence of God never wavers. 

The light of God surrounds me,
The love of God enfolds me,
The power of God protects me,
The presence of God watches over me.
Wherever I am, God is.

In this booklet, Freeman recounts the story of writing the prayer. The rest of the pages explore the prayer line by line as Unity and New Thought writers reflect on their experiences with divine light, love, power, and presence.

By learning through Freeman’s own words how this special prayer came to be and how others have used it, discover the many ways it can serve you too.
