Heavenly Father, I put on the armor of God with gratitude and praise.
You have provided all I need to stand in victory against satan and his
I confidently take the belt of truth. Thank you that satan cannot
stand against the bold use of truth.
Thank You for the breastplate of righteousness. I embrace that
righteousness which is mine by faith in Jesus Christ. I know that satan
must retreat before the righteousness of God.
You have provided the solid rock of peace. I claim the peace with
God that is mine through justification. I desire the peace of God that
touches my emotions and feelings through prayer and sanctification.
Eagerly, Lord, I lift up the shield of faith against all the blazing
missiles that satan fires at me. I know that You are my shield.
I recognize that my mind is a particular target of satan’s deceiving
ways. I cover my mind with the powerful helmet of salvation.
With joy I lift the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.
I choose to live in its truth and power. Enable me to use Your Word to
defend myself from satan, and also to wield the sword well, to push
satan back, to defeat him.
Thank You, dear Lord, for prayer. Help me to keep this armor well
oiled with prayer. All these petitions I offer You through the mighty
name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
