Scripture: Ephesians 6:13-18 (NIV)
“Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”
Prayer: Jesus, how we need to put on the armor of God daily. Belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness in place, feet fitted with the readiness to share the gospel of peace, shield of faith which protects our hearts from the onslaught of the enemy, helmet of salvation to help protect your mind and thought life, and the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God. Help us to always be praying for your believers, too! Please remind us that our struggle is not against people but against rulers, authorities, and spiritual forces in the heavenlies. Jesus, help us to always be alert and teach our children and grandchildren about wearing these important war fare clothing. Thank you, Jesus, for you make us brave! You are our Champion! It’s in your powerful Name, I pray, Amen.
Decree out loud: I decree I am strong in Jesus’ mighty power. I put on His full armor with His full authority and am protected against the schemes of the enemy. I declare I will keep boldly praying for all the saints! I decree I will not wrestle against, nor will I go into a rant against people, but keep in mind our war is against rulers and demonic agendas in dark places!
