The Armor of God

The Armor of God

The Armor of God: Pray The Warrior’s Prayer

You’ve met Jesus. He is your Savior. The next step is to come to the place of surrendering to him as Lord. The last step is to understand he is our very life. John 5:19reminds us, “Truly, truly I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing.”  Walking in God’s grace is the key to living a fruitful life. We don’t have to do it alone or without tools.

Putting on the The Armor of God is more than just playing army or a child’s dress up game. If you want increased impact, you can have it. God has given us what we need. But we have the choice whether or not to put on the Armor of God. We can take on the responsibility as we pray The Warrior’s Prayer every day.

Jesus has already won the battle. Now put on the Armor of God by praying each piece of the armor over yourself with God’s word. Our war is not against flesh and blood; you are victorious through scriptural prayers. Here’s the Warrior’s Prayer straight from

Heavenly Father,

Your Warrior prepares for battle.
Today I claim victory over Satan by putting on
the whole armor of God!

I put on the Girdle of Truth!
May I stand firm in the truth of Your word
So I will not be a victim of Satan’s life.

I put on the Breastplate of Righteousness!
May it guard my heart from evil
So I will remain pure and holy,
Protected under the Blood of Jesus Christ.

I put on the Shoes of Peace!
May I stand firm in the Good News of the Gospel
So Your peace will shine through me
And be a light to all I encounter.

I take the Shield of Faith!
May I be ready for Satan’s fiery darts of
Doubt, denial and deceit
So I will not be vulnerable to spiritual defeat.

I put on the Helmet of Salvation!
May I keep my mind focused on You
So Satan will not have a stronghold on my thoughts.

I take the Sword of the Spirit!
May the two-edged sword of Your Word
Be ready in my hands
So I can expose the tempting words of Satan.

By faith Your Warrior has put on the whole armor of God!

I am prepared to live this day in spiritual victory!

Amen
