Heavenly Father, I praise and worship you because you are God. I am honored to be
your servant and I take my stand today against the devil and his schemes against
me, my family and my ministry. Father, as I take up each piece of the armour, please
secure it in place on me.
I take up the shield of faith and extend it over myself. It extinguishes all the
fiery darts of the evil one. I put on the helmet of salvation, which protects my
mind from the enemy’s attacks. I have the mind of Christ. I put on the breastplate
of righteousness, which covers my body with the righteousness of God. In Christ,
every foothold of evil has been washed away and I am clothed in righteousness! I
gird my loins with the belt of truth. Your word, O God, is truth. Father, sanctify
me according to your word and remind me through the Holy Spirit of the truth that
destroys the lies of sin. I shod my feet with the preparation of the Gospel of peace.
I have peace with God through the blood of Jesus. I have favour with God and with
man. I walk in my inheritance as an adopted son of God and have authority over evil
in Jesus’ name. I will use the Sword of the Spirit by speaking the Word of God as
it applies to whatever situation I may face today. Father, please remind me of your
Word through the Holy Spirit.
I will continue to pray in the Spirit throughout the day, and intercede for all Christians
as the Holy Spirit prompts me. I believe that the Holy Spirit is interceding on my
behalf according to my prayers.
Thank you, Father, for the whole armour of God. Please surround me with your hedge
of protection as I move forward on the spiritual battlefield today. I praise and
worship you now and forever, Amen.”
