Prayer for Protection is a poem written by Unity minister James Dillet Freeman for all soldiers during World War II.  It was also carried into space by astronaut Buzz Aldrin on the first manned moon landing in 1969.

Individuals and churches use this beloved prayer as a reminder that wherever we go, God is.  Often the words “and all is well” are added to the end.

I did not grow up with “canned prayers” but I find the words of the Prayer for Protection extremely helpful and comforting, especially during times when words just won’t come.  If you are not familiar with the Prayer for Protection visit one of the links below and get acquainted.
