Back by popular demand is what I use as my “Armor of God” Prayer. This week’s blog post combines the verse, message, and prayer in one. I received the prayer from a guest speaker at a “Purpose Driven Life” small group of Church of the Highlands during the fall of 2004 . It has been a beautiful tool for protection against the enemy each day. I recommend that you consider printing it to use as a portion of your daily prayer time. I promise it will change your life if you put on the Armor of God consistently! I am so thankful our Jehovah Nissi is our Banner of Victory over the Devil! Our Savior has won the war, but we still have a battle to participate while we are in our earthly bodies!
Heavenly Father, I desire to be obedient by being strong in the Lord and the power of your might. I recognize that it is essential to put on the armor that you have provided, and I do so now with gratitude, praise, and by faith as effective spiritual protection against the spiritual forces of darkness.
I confidently take the BELT OF TRUTH–I take Jesus who is the TRUTH as my strength and protection and ask wisdom and discernment to believe, live, speak, and know only the truth.
Thank you for the BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. By faith I appropriate the righteousness of Jesus Christ and ask you, Jesus, to walk in Your holiness in my life today.
Thank you, Lord, for the SHOES OF PEACE. I desire that my feet should stand on the solid rock of peace and that as I walk in obedience to you, the God of peace promises to walk with me.
Eagerly, Lord, I lift up the SHIELD OF FAITH. By faith, I trust in you to be a complete and perfect shield.
I recognize that my mind is a target of Satan’s deceiving ways, and I take the HELMET OF SALVATION, recognizing that the Lord Jesus Christ is my salvation. I shield my head with Him and invite His mind to be in me.
With joy I take hold of the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, which is the Word of God, affirming that it is the infallible Word of God. Enable me to use Your Word not only to defend me from Satan but to claim it’s promises.
Thank You, dear Lord for PRAYER. Help me to keep this armor well oiled with prayer. I desire to pray at all times with depth and intensity as the Holy Spirit leads me. Grant me a burden for others in God’s family and enable me to see their needs and assist them through prayer as the enemy attacks them.
All these things I ask in the mighty name of
Jesus Christ my Lord,
STAY PROTECTED WITH THE ARMOR OF GOD!
