If you are working hard to rid yourself and others of dark entities, it is important to remember to say a spiritual shield protection prayer after the dark entities have been removed.
When we begin our day, we always pray that each member of our family will be shielded with a perfect shield of protection.
There are scripture stories like when Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were protected. Nebuchadnezzar cast them into the fire but they were not harmed. I think it is likely that a spiritual shield of protection kept them safe.
…..upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats change, nor the smell of fire had passed on them. Daniel 3:27
Another scripture story about Samuel, a Lamanite who stood on the wall of the city of Zarahemla to tell the people to repent is an example of someone who was surrounded with a spiritual shield of protection most likely because a prayer for protection was offered.
But as many as there were who did not believe in the words of Samuel were angry with him; and they cast stones at him upon the wall, and also many shot arrows at him as he stood upon the wall; but the Spirit of the Lord was with him, insomuch that they could not hit him with their stones neither with their arrows. Helaman 16:2
