The Armor of God

So today, I had an idea for a blog post. And my idea is how to put on God's awesome Armor, because we can't live without it. To put it on- we pray this:

"Dear Lord, as I get out of bed today, I know I'm stepping onto a battlefield. But I also know You've given me everything I need to stand firm. So in the power of Your Holy Spirit, I put on the armor of God:

"First, I place the helmet of salvation on my head. Protect my mind and imagination. Guard my eyes, allowing no sin to creep in. Focus my thoughts on the the things of God. Let the breastplate of righteousness keep my heart and emotions safe. I pray that I won't be governed by my feelings, but by truth. Wrap Your Word around me like a belt. And safeguard me from error. I put on the sandals of peace to  guide my steps. Plant my feet in Your truth. Empower me to stand firm against attack. 


"Next, I take up the shield of faith. Protect me from Satan's fiery arrows. Place me shoulder to shoulder with Your army to oppose the Devil's schemes. Finally, I take up the sword of the Spirit, Your Word. Help me to read the Bible in a fresh, exciting way so I will always be ready to deflect attacks and pierce hearts with Your truth.


"I Know I'll face assaults today, Lord. But You've empowered me to stand firm. Give me strength for the battle today."

Without God's armor, you're as vulnerable as a soldier who goes into battle wearing only a bathing suit. Get dressed for success!   

Thanks for reading! Oh, and here is the link to the website, where I got this prayer from. :) Don't forget to put on the wonderful armor of God.

  5. I taught the Armor of God to my Sunday School class this past fall. There is a really awesome song to go along with the Bible teaching. Apparently there are a few, but ours had the refrain that went..."put on the armor, the armor, the armor of God (repeat)" Loved it!
    Thank you very much for sharing this prayer. It is wonderful.
