Praying the Armor of God

In the name of Jesus, we put on the armor of God.  We ask that we be filled with the Holy Spirit, that He would remind us to put on the armor and teach us how to use it.

In the name of Jesus, we put on the belt of truth – may the Holy Spirit fill us with wisdom and discernment that we may recognize the lies of Satan and the lies of men, and replace those lies with Your truth.  May all that we think, say, feel and do be based on Your truth. 

 In the name of Jesus, we put on the breastplate of righteousness, the blood of Christ.  Thank You Jesus for living for us and dying for us.  Thank You for shedding Your blood that we may one day stand before God in white robes of righteousness.  May the Holy Spirit fill us with love that we may love You with all our heart and soul, mind and strength; that we might love others as Jesus loves people, and love ourselves as You love us.  May all that we think, say, feel and do pass through and pass on Your love. 

 In the name of Jesus, we shoe our feet with the gospel of peace.  We ask that the Holy Spirit remind us to put on our shoes, do all that we can do and then stand firm.  May He prepare us and make us ready to give an answer for what we believe.  When You open the door to an open soul, may our mouths open with the words You want said to them.  May we be filled with and controlled by Your peace. 

 In the name of Jesus, we put on the helmet of salvation and ask the Holy Spirit to fill us with the mind of Christ.  May He help us to cast down our imaginations and bring every thought captive to Christ. 

 In the name of Jesus, we wield our shield of faith.  May the Holy Spirit increase our measure of faith.  May all that we think, say, feel and do be based on faith, not fact or feeling. 

 In the name of Jesus, we brandish the sword of Your word.  May the Holy Spirit fill us with Your Word, help us to hide Your word in our hearts and remind us to meditate on Your word day and night that we may be sure to obey it.  May all that we think, say, feel and do be based on and checked against Your word. 

 Remind us to pray at all times in the Spirit.  Help us to be alert with all perseverance.  Teach us to start fighting back.  In Jesus’ name.
