Psalms 91 is the prayer of the British Ninety First Battalion, and during the First World War, at every morning parade, they recited that Psalm – as a prayer. Throughout that terrible war, not one was killed due to enemy action. The Lord DOES protect those who trust in Him!
Psalms 91:1-4 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High, who live under the shadow of the Lord, those who say : He is my refuge and strength, in Him I put my trust.
