“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 kingdom.
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 (Philippians 4:6).
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.”
From Mark I. Bubeck
