Putting on the Armor of God

Putting on the Armor of God

A reminder:  Putting on the armor of God.

Help me to put on this whole armor of God every day so I might be able to stand in the evil day and having done all to stand. Help me to put on the belt of truth, remembering that all I naturally deserve is suffering, failure, punishment, pain and hell, plus eternal separation from you (Rom. 7:18; Eph. 2:1-6). But praise you for your eternal grace in which you chose me, called me, cleansed me, claimed me as your son, commissioned me for special service, and now I stand before you dearly loved, deeply cared for, doted on and delighted in (Eph. 1:1-10; Col. 3:12a).

In the same way, help me to put on the breastplate of righteousness, forgiving, accepting and loving myself as you do me. And to put on the shoes of peace, forgiving others as you have forgiven me.

In addition to all of these, help me to lift up the shield of faith by praising in and for all things so I can quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

Help me to put on and keep on the helmet of salvation, remembering/believing that my salvation, significance and security all depend on and flow from you, from your character and your provision, not from my performance or others’ opinions of me and my work.

I also praise you, Lord that you have given us the sword of the Spirit: your living, powerful, transforming Word. Help me to soak in your Word, read it, to think it, pray it, live in it today. And then to pray with all prayer for all the saints continually, making intercessory prayer the foundation of all I do.

Thank you now, Lord God, for how you will answer these requests, for this is praying according to your Word and will (Eph. 6:10-18)


Prayer: “Praise you, Lord Jesus, for your presence, your power, your provision prepared for this day. May you be glorified, magnified, lifted up, exalted and honored through your working in me today. Amen.”
