This “Warrior’s Prayer” is based upon the scripture from Ephesians 6:10-20. It is a great prayer to pray every day as you start your day. We are in a spiritual battle and when you are breaking free from sexual sin, the enemy will fight back. Make sure you are ready and prepared each day by putting on your spiritual armor. This prayer is just one way to do just that.
Written by Dr. David Jeremiah
Heavenly Father, Your warrior prepares for battle. Today I claim victory over Satan by putting on the whole armor of God!
I put on the Girdle of Truth!
May I stand firm in the truth of Your Word so I will not be a victim of Satan’s lies.
I put on the Breastplate of Righteousness!
May it guard my heart from evil so I will remain pure and holy, protected under the blood of Jesus Christ.
I put on the Shoes of Peace!
May I stand firm in the Good News of the Gospel so Your peace will shine through me and be a light to all I encounter and I take up the Shield of Faith!
May I be ready for Satan’s fiery darts of doubt, denial and deceit so I will not be vulnerable to spiritual defeat.
I put on the Helmet of Salvation!
May I keep my mind focused on You so Satan will not have a stronghold on my thoughts.
I take the Sword of the Spirit!
May the two-edged sword of Your Word be ready in my hands so I can expose the tempting words of Satan.
By faith your warrior has put on the armor of God!
I am prepared to live this day in spiritual victory! AMEN!!
What other ways do you prepare yourself to fight the spiritual battles that wage each day?
