Bible Reading: Psalm 91: 1-16

Memory VerseThese are evil times, so make every minute count. Ephesians 5:16 (CEV)

Credit to the works of Daddy Alao Abiodun. Tips to prevent kidnapping include:

  1. Pray to avoid being a victim: God’s refuge appears to be the only way out in terms of spiritual protection. For the victims and their families and friends, the consequences are even more frightful, and that is why one must pray to avoid being a victim. Daily pray Proverbs 18:10.
  • Stop routine movements: Driving or walking through the same route will make it easy for suspecting abductors to gather information about you and can make it easy for them to track you down when they are ready to strike. Find other routes you can use when driving from home to work and back.
  • Don’t discuss your family with strangers: Whatever issues you have with your family must not be discussed with strangers. This is to maintain safety as it has been reported previously that kidnappers also gather information from those in one’s neighborhood.
  • Do proper checks before employing workers: Before you employ your new house keeper, driver or any other employee, please do a proper background check about that person. Know the family members and let the person give the name of a guarantor that can stand in for him or her. This should be done because some people who are kidnappers may pretend to be seeking employment with you.
  • Maintain a moderate lifestyle: Check your lifestyle. If you have been living loud, try to be moderate. Looking expensive all the time can make you a target of kidnappers.
  • Don’t discuss money publicly: To avoid being a victim of kidnappers, another area you must check is receiving phone calls that involve discussing money, especially huge sums. When you discuss such amounts of money in public, you send signals to kidnappers that you are rich and that can pencil you down as a victim.
  • Know your neighbours: To avoid living close to a potential kidnapper, get to know that person living close to you well. Find out if the person is living alone or not and the kind of job that person does for a living.

8. Do not accept rides from strangers: Once you get into a stranger’s car, you are at their mercy. They could either incapacitate you or hold you hostage and you might not have an opportunity to defend yourself.

9. Don’t get too close to a stranger: Try not to share valuable information with people that you don’t know. That stranger may be a kidnapper in disguise so avoid any stranger that tries to move close to you unnecessarily. Try not to share valuable information with those you don’t know. That stranger may be a kidnapper in disguise so avoid strictly any stranger that tries to move close to you unnecessarily.

Quote:  Wisdom is profitable to direct. 

Prophetic Decree:  We pitch the altar of the Lord against the altar of kidnappers, in Jesus name.

Prayer Focus

1. I confuse all the evil trailers of my destiny, in Jesus name.

2. I refuse to be a kidnapped victim, in Jesus name.

3. O Lord, keep me safe under your saving arms, in Jesus name.

4. I command total blindness upon all kidnappers trailing me or what is mine, in Jesus name.

5. O Lord, by your hand of power and fire, please bring all those in the web of kidnappers out, in Jesus name.
