“Lord, keep me strong in Your strength and might. Clothe me in the full armor
that You have so graciously provided for Your children so that I may stand
against the spiritual forces that wage war against me and Your church. Father,
I want to be found standing and withstanding in the day of evil. Help me,
Father, as I engage in this battle that has taken our world over, that has come
against Your church, and that tries to bring down each of us with its fury.
Attach the belt of truth, Father, that Your truth may secure and protect my
heart. Fill me with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, and self-control, that my emotions may be held firmly in check.
Father, attach the breastplate of righteousness, protecting my heart. May I be
filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the
glory and praise of God.
Father, put on me the shoes of readiness to share the Gospel of peace. Lord,
enable me to be prepared to give an account for the hope that is in me for my
Father, equip me with the shield of faith to extinguish all the flaming darts of
the Evil One.
Father, equip me with the helmet of salvation that will protect my mind, that
I may not doubt my salvation. May my mind be protected so that I think upon
those things that are honorable, pure, lovely, commendable, and excellent.
Keep me in Your word — alert, persevering, and making supplication for all the
saints, that we all will boldly proclaim the Good News of the Gospel. May all of
this be to Your glory and praise. Amen
