“The Warrior’s Prayer”


Heavenly Father, Your Warrior Prepares for Battle.

Today I claim victory over the enemy by putting on the Whole Armor of God!
1) I put on the Belt of Truth. 
May I stand firm in the truth Of your word so I will not be a victim of the enemy’s lies.
2) I put on the Breastplate of Righteousness.
May it guard my heart against evil so I will remain pure and holy, protected under the blood of Jesus Christ.
3) I put on the Sandals of Peace.
May I go out and proclaim the Good News of the Gospel so your peace will shine through me and be a light to all I encounter.
4) I take the Shield of Faith.
May I be ready to deflect the enemy fiery darts of doubt, denial, and deceit so I will not be vulnerable to spiritual defeat.
5) I put on the Helmet of Salvation.
May I keep my mind focused on you so the enemy will not have a stronghold on my thoughts.
6) I take the Sword of the Spirit.
May the two-edged sword of Your word be ready in my hands so I can use it to take authority over the enemy.
By faith, your warrior has put on the Whole Armor of God.
I am prepared to live this day in spiritual victory.
Amen.

The Almighty Defense – The Armor of God


week4_0

The Apostle Paul mentions a certain sword, shield, helmet, breastplate, belt, and shoes in Ephesians chapter six. And he refers to them as the believer’s “armor.” Paul clearly commands us to dress ourselves in this “armor” in order that we may effectively fight this spiritual battle in which we find ourselves currently employed. However, even with the presence of a clear command, many Christians today are under the impression that this “armor” is merely for little kid’s in Sunday school class, and not something that mature Christian adults are supposed to actually “put on.” In many ways, we have lost the grandeur and majesty of God’s purchased weaponry and many Christians think of God’s “armor” as plastic, dime-store religiosity. The saints of God have not been left here on earth alone, to fend for themselves. They have been given every last thing they could possibly ever need in order to thrive in life and godliness.
