We say this Prayer for Protection at the end of each Sunday service, affirming the divine within us.
The original Prayer for Protection was written by James Dillet Freeman, a Unity poet, to comfort military personnel in World War 2. Read that story here.
The original did not include the I AM statements. Those were added to emphasize the Presence that expresses through every human being and equips us with all the attributes of God. See the Twelve Powers video.
