I am not one who uses written prayers very often. But I wrote this many years ago as a tool to help me and others to focus on putting on the armor of God
Perhaps you would use this in response to my previous blog to help you “put on the armor or God” in your morning prayers.
This isn’t a substitute for your own prayer but a jumping off point a starter prayer. I hope it is a help and a blessing. Maybe you could print it out and put it on the fridge or on your mirror or in your Bible
DAILY ARMOR PRAYER
To the best of my ability with the power of God’s Spirit within me, I intend to enthrone Christ as Lord in my life this day.
Lord I take on the MIND OF CHRIST, as commanded in Philippians 2:5, that is to be an obedient servant seeking only to please God.
I take on the BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, may I be faithful in heart, motives, and emotions.
I take on the BELT OF TRUTH, may your integrity within me keep everything else in my life in place.
I take on the SHOES OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE, may the message of Christ be the force that carries me through the day.
Lord when attacked today by the evil one, I will hold up the SHIELD OF FAITH, knowing that you have already won the victory for every battle that I will fight today.
Finally Lord, I give you free reign to use the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, in my life today. I understand that it is powerful, to cut and to heal. I promise to practice and become familiar with it so that you may use it effectively in my life.
Thank you Lord, for loving me enough, to always equip me for the task of being your soldier, your sheep, and your sheltered child. I love you because you loved me first. Now, by the power and the name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, God Almighty, I pray. Amen.
Be strong in The Lord in his mighty power
