Praying on the Armor of God

Put on all the armor that God gives, so you can defend yourself against the devil’s tricks. We are not fighting against humans. We are fighting against forces and authorities and against rulers of darkness and powers in the spiritual world. So put on all the armor that God gives. Then when that evil day comes, you will be able to defend yourself. And when the battle is over, you will still be standing firm.
(Ephesians 6:11-13 CEV)

I’ve been praying on the full armor of God every morning since I first learned about it and it has made a significant impact on my life. The helmet of salvation has protected my mind and imagination. The breastplate of righteousness has kept my heart and emotions safe, guarded my eyes, and focused my thoughts steadily on the things of God. The belt of truth has safeguarded me from error, while the sandals of peace have guided my steps, planted my feet in God’s truth and empowered me to stand firm against attack. The shield of faith has protected me from the fiery arrows of the enemy, and the sword of the Spirit–God’s Word–has deflected attacks and pierced hearts with His truth. I encourage you to pray on the full armor of God, so that you, too, can stand firm against attack.

Pray on the full armor of God each day.
