Dress me in the Spiritual Armor of Christ so that I might fight the good fight. Place the Helmet of Salvation upon my head and make my thoughts Your thoughts. I want to be Christ minded, thinking the best of everyone. Adhere the Breastplate of Righteousness tightly to my chest, for I know it will protect my heart from Satan’s fiery darts. Now for the Belt of Truth! Cinch it tightly around my waist and cause it to expose every lie the enemy sends my way. May the Sandals of Peace direct my steps and lead me in the way You would have me go. I take up my Shield of Faith. It will protect me from every advancement of the enemy. Finally Lord, I ask that you teach me to use my spiritual Sword effectively. I am so thankful for Your Living Word. I pray that with Your truth in my heart I will cut down every evil I face today and forever more. Amen.
You will find this prayer in my devotional FACING ADVERSITY: THOUGHTS OF WISDOM, PRAISE, & PROMISE. Available on Amazon the first week of December.
