Putting on the Armor of God Daily Preparation

A personal covering prayer based on Ephesians 6:10–18 Always remember your strength is in the Lord and His power, not in yourself alone. It is important to prayerfully put it on your body and soul (psychological nature: intellect, will and emotions and subconscious) Please feel free to personalize it.

Prayer: Dear Father God, Paul and the disciples went through many spiritual battles while on earth. I need to be battle ready too!

Belt of Truth: it is dangerous to rush into battle without the truths of the faith in my mind and heart. Protect me from deception and remind me of Your Truth to think, speak, and act like Jesus. “Your word says to “gird myself with truth.” I pick up the Belt of Truth and secure it around the center of my being. “You are the Holy Spirit of Truth, and Your Word is Truth.” The belt of truth also encircles my loins protecting my purity.

Breastplate of Righteousness: Thank you God for taking away my robe of rebellion and sin and replacing it with Jesus’ robe of righteousness. I have been made righteous through the cleansing blood of the Lamb. I’m taking the soldier’s breast- plate and putting it on, to protect my heart and soul from the lies of the enemy. The Breastplate wraps around to protect my back, you are also my rearguard.

Shoes of the Gospel of Peace: My soldier’s boots, provide me not only with protection, but balance. If I lose Your peace Lord, I’ll know that I’m off balance. Holy Spirit fill me, and help me walk in, ‘peace that passes understanding’. Cure anxiety in myself and others around me. May my shoes take me places where I can share the gospel.” May I take peace with me wherever I go.

Shield of Faith: Dear Lord, thank you for the gift of Faith, help me believe and trust in Your plan for my life. “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God” (vs. 10:17). May my faith grow daily as I meditate on your Word. When the fiery darts (the lies, fears and doubts of the world) are shot at me, make me alert to quickly put up my shield of faith, to deflect them. Help me stay in community so that in intense warfare I can link shields with others in the Army of God.

The Helmet of Salvation:
Thank you, Lord, for the awesome gift of salvation which preserves and delivers me now and forever. Your promises sustain me in the battle. I take the helmet of Salvation to protect my mind which is a treasure that I must take care of and not allow to be defiled. I consecrate my mind to you today, so that there is no room for deception.

The Sword of the Spirit: “For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit” (Hebrews 4:12). The double-edged sword is You, the living Word, and the Bible, the written Word. You fought our enemy with Scripture Swords and won, remind me to do the same. Help me read and memorize your Word which keeps it close at hand and remind me of the specific scripture needed for each situation. Praying Always in the Spirit: “Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth...” (Ps. 149:5,6).

As I stand here fully clothed with Your protective armor, remind me to pray, sing, thank and praise You in my native language, and in the gift of Tongues, for total victory in the battles past, present and future. In Jesus’ mighty Name,
Amen.

Yielding Prayer

Dear Father God, I yield my will to You. I give You permission to go to any level within me, to heal, cleanse, and restore according to Your truth. To the best of my ability, I invite You to be my Lord, unconditionally. Please be Lord of my subconscious, as well as my conscious mind. I renounce every false teaching and attitude, and ask You to cleanse and protect me with Jesus’ Blood. I cast down every wrong imagination and everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and I bring every thought captive to the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You, Lord God in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
