Praying for protection should be a normal exercise for faithful Christians. While God is present in our lives everyday, we must ask him to regularly protect us from evil that exists on Earth. Evil can present itself as a mean neighbor, an unfair boss, annoying bill collectors, or worse. The Devil works his way into our lives and forces us to commit sin against our will, lie to loved ones, and not show the patience that God wishes us to possess.
God can easily dispatch his angels to protect you and your family. All he asks is for your faith and prayer to Him on a regular basis. In addition to going to church, he asks that you find other ways to meet up with fellow Christians. There are many great Christian websites that help you find people with equal undying and loyal faith. When Christians pray together in large groups, God hears us all the better.
Meet with friends and loved ones to kneel before God and ask his forgiveness for sins. He will reward you with the protection that you need and deserve. Pastors and Priests alike all agree that consistent faith and prayer is the best way to show your loyalty and reverence to Him in heaven.
