As Filipinos who are used to living with your extended family, where each member looks out for the others, when you are thrust into the world on your own and you feel insecure, Who do you trust? Who can you trust? Not just another Filipino whom you have just met, who has the same feelings of insecurity as you.
There is protection in the Lord.
The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night. Psalm 121:6 We shall not be injured by heat nor cold; by a sun-stroke by day, nor a frost-bite by night. We are safe from the negative effects of natural forces – the sun and the moon if we trust in the Lord.
He is the unchanging God for He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Hebrews 13:8.
His Word does not change though all else may change.
God is not a man, that he should lie,
nor a son of man, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act?
Does he promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19
Yes, no matter how things, your situations, your environment, your employer may change Jesus never changes, you can depend on Him and His Word!
And you can depend on Him not only to keep you, but also your family back home, whether they are at work, at home, or at play. Praise the Lord., our Omnipresent God is with you at your foreign work location, as He is with your family back home.
He watches over you all the time as He does not sleep or slumber
He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; 4 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. 5 The Lord watches over you — the Lord is your shade at your right hand; 6 the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. 7 The Lord will keep you from all harm — he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. Psalm 121:3-8
Nothing can separate us from the love of God
38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
Praise the Lord, Child of God you are special. He will protect you like an eagles protects her young .

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the defense of my life; Whom shall I dread?

Though a host encamp against me, My heart will not fear; Though war arise against me, In spite of this I shall be confident. Psalm 27:1

Here’s is Paul’s Prayer
Paul’s Prayer Thanking God for Deliverance from Evil at Colossae (Colossians 1:9-14)
And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Personal prayers based on Psalms
Based upon Psalms 91:9-16
Holy God, I have made You my dwelling place, the Most High, who is my refuge and I trust that because of this no evil shall be allowed to befall me, no plague come near my home. For he will command his angels concerning me to guard me in all my ways. On their hands they will bear me up lest I strike my foot against a stone. I will tread on the lion and the adder; the young lion and the serpent I will trample underfoot. I rest upon your promise: “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.” Amen
Based upon Psalms 140:1-5
Deliver me, O Lord, from evil men; preserve me from violent men, who plan evil things in their heart and stir up wars continually. They make their tongue sharp as a serpent’s, and under their lips is the venom of asps. Selah
Guard me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from violent men, who have planned to trip up my feet. The arrogant have hidden a trap for me, and with cords they have spread a net; beside the way they have set snares for me. Selah
Based upon Ephesians 6:13-17
Dear Lord, as I put on the full armour of God, I know that when the day of evil comes, I will be able to stand my ground, and after I have done everything, I will stand. I will stand firm, with the belt of truth buckled around my waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with my feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, I will take up the shield of faith, with which I can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. I take on the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
