Suiting Up for the Day-a daily prayer

This daily prayer is the result of my research as well as the thoughts of  friends and family. It is taken from the “Armor of God” passage in Ephesians.

Dear Lord, 

Make me alert to the warfare around me. Help me discern what is good and what is evil.

Bless me this morning as I put on your armor to face the day.

 Helmet of Salvation– Protect my thinking from evil.  Fill my mind with thoughts transformed by Your Spirit. Fill my mind with joy and thanksgiving.

 Breastplate  of Righteousness–  Protect my emotions from evil. Protect my heart and keep it  tender towards You and your Spirit, and towards the people You bring into my life.

 Belt of Truth– Give me eyes to see Your truth today and help me use that truth as I seek to make decisions for You.

 Boots of the Gospel of Peace– Prepare me to face whatever comes today. Protect me physically and give me wisdom  as I seek to walk in Your way. Give me boldness in my witness to You.

 Shield of Faith -Today  I choose to take up my shield of faith. I choose you God, and Your way, no matter what this day brings.

 Sword of the Spirit– Remind me of your word all day. Bring to my mind and lips whatever Scripture will deliver the strongest blow to the enemy. As I read your word imprint it on my heart.

 This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it!

 In Christ’s precious name,  

Amen

  1. Robin, thank you for this! I, too, find it hard to know how to pray the armor. This will help. I would love to read your writing, so I subscribed! I’m mulling around starting a blog. I, too, love to write and need to find a way to make myself do it. Love keeping up with you and your family on Facebook.
