Praying In The Armour Of God: Day 7

29th July

Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armour so you will be able to resist the enemy in time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.

Ephesians 6:13

Friends, as we reach our last day, let this not be a week long thing only, but rather make it part of your everyday prayer life, so that after you are wearing all of God’s armour, you will still be standing strong against the enemy. Pray in the Spirit at all times, asking God to give you the words to pray. Pray for yourself. Pray for others. And pray for all believers everywhere.

..and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.…..”

Lord, I pray that You would remind me of the promises in Your word. Help me to speak them out with my mouth. Help me to live them out in my life. Let Your word come quickly to mind when I am in need of victory. I pray that Your word will purge out the lies and filth that the enemy tempts me with. I pray that when I read Your word, I will remember all that I read, meditate on it and let it fill my very being with truth. May Your word be my lamp and light. May I live by Your word and the promises found in them. Lead me, guide me and teach me. In Your Name Jesus.

Amen

Praying In The Armour Of God: Day 6

28th July

Put on all of God’s armour so that you will be able to stand firm against all the strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

Ephesians 6:11-12

What is really going on behind the scenes..? Friends, we are in a spiritual battle. Yet just as Paul said, often our enemy does not come in the form of flesh and blood, but is found in the unseen spiritual world. Yet we are not left as helpless sheep against our wolf-like enemy. We are fully protected by the blood of Jesus and have been equipped with the tools and armoury to withstand the enemy’s strategies. For the next week we will be structuring our devotionals as prayers so that we can guard ourselves against the enemy and his divisive tactics. As you pray the armour of God over your lives, we pray that you will begin to find victory in Him. That fear is swept away and the truth of who you are in Christ we lead you forwards…..

Put on salvation as your helmet.…..”

Lord, I pray that I will stand firm and secure in my salvation. I pray that my mind will be guarded from evil thoughts. Thoughts to harm me and not to prosper me, which is contrary to what You want for me, will not enter my mind. I pray that You will help me fix my thoughts on eternal things, not on natural things which are carnal. I pray that You will fill my mind with Your thoughts and Your plans for me. Help me to discern what is carnal thinking and deal it with accordingly. Let me rest in my salvation. Amen

In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.…..”

Lord, I pray that as I hold up the shield of faith, the banner of my salvation, every arrow of discouragement, of fear, of depression, of anxiety and anything else, will be extinguished in the Name of Jesus. I pray that nothing will be able to penetrate the shield of faith and the shield of my salvation. That the fiery arrows of hatred and bitterness will be extinguished before they even get to me, in the Name of Jesus.

For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared…..”

Lord, as I go out today, I carry the Good News of the King. May I remember that wherever I go, it’s Your Kingdom territory. I am Your ambassador. I am Your light in the dark places. Equip me to be the salt in conversation. May I speak love and peace to all I meet. May I take Kingdom ground wherever I step, breaking the chains of the enemy, in the Name of Jesus Christ. May boldly share Your Good News so all I meet without fear of man, or what people will say. In Jesus’ Name.

“….and the body armour of God’s righteousness…..”

Lord, this day I choose to reject shame, guilt and condemnation. Guard my heart with Your truth. I thank You that through the power of Your grace I am forgiven and empowered to live righteously before You. I thank You that Jesus became my righteousness for me. Thank You that I do not need to tirelessly live a lifestyle of trying to be righteous because You have done it for me. Protect me, in Jesus’ Name from believing in anything less than what you think of me.

“….Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth…..”

Lord, this day I recognise the lies of the enemy. I recognise that what he tells me about myself, about You and about my circumstances are all lies. I understand his native language is lies. So I choose to reject the lies in the Name of Jesus and stand in the truth of all God says about me. May I be filled with the promises found in Your word. I am a beloved child of God, part of the bride and army of Christ. I am part of a royal priesthood. I am the head and not the tail. God so loved me that He gave His Only Son for me. I am His!
