Putting on the Armor Prayer

Lord God Jehovah, Captain of Lord’s Host, I come before You today to prepare for battle. Under Your supervision, I have come to put on the whole Armor of God.

The Belt of Truth: Thank you, my Lord, for showing me the truth about yourself. Thank you for reminding me that You are the only God, the Creator of heaven and earth, the King of the universe, my Father who loves me, and my Shepherd who leads me. You are my wisdom, my counselor, my hope, and my strength. You are everything I need each day.

The Breastplate of Righteousness: Thank you for showing me the truth about myself – that on my own I could never be good enough to live in your presence. Thank you for taking my sins to the cross and offering me your righteous life. Lord, show me any sin that I need to confess right now, so that nothing will hinder me from being filled to overflowing with your Spirit. Thank you for forgiving me and for filling me with your righteous life.

The Sandals of Peace: Thank you for the peace you give me when I trust you and follow you. Show me how to help others find that peace.

The Shield of Faith: Thank you for helping me have faith in you. I choose to count on everything you have shown me about yourself and everything you have promised me in your Word.

The Helmet of Salvation: Thank you for promising me salvation, both for today’s battles and for all eternity.

The Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God: Thank you for the scriptures you have given me to memorize. Please show me which one(s) you want me to use to cut through deceptions and gain your victory in any battle I may face today.

Now Lord, I am ready for battle. You have equipped me to fully engage our enemy. You are my Jehovah-Nissi, my banner of Victory. You Lord, are before me, behind me, and on every side of me, to constantly remind me that the victory is the Lord’s. I shall declare it and walk in it today. AMEN!
