April 17, 2022: Praying the Armor of God


Use the following guide to spiritually cover yourself with the armor of God each day.

  1. Helmet of Salvation – Protect my mind. Lord, keep my mind and eyes focused on you. Let me think right; let me view things through your eyes. (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
  2. Breastplate of Righteousness – Protect my heart. God, filter everything that comes into or out of my heart, through your righteousness. Let me be easily impressed by Your Spirit. Defend me when the enemy tries to corrupt my heart. (Proverbs 4:23)
  3. Loins Girt (Belted) with Truth – Loving Truth. Lord, Gird (or encircle) me with truth; wrap yourself around me. Let truth keep me from lies and error. Help me choose a lifestyle of honesty and integrity. Show me the truths I need to know. (John 17:17)
  4. Feet Shod with the Preparation of the Gospel of Peace – Let everywhere I walk bring peace. Lord, anoint and guide my feet to wherever you want me to go. Let everywhere my feet touch bring Your peace. (1 Peter 3:15)
  5. Shield of Faith – Quench the fiery darts of the enemy and help me when I don’t understand. Lord, you are my defense. I ask for protection from the attacks of the enemy. Hold before me and around me the shield of faith. Help me use my shield to stop any attempts to make me doubt or waiver. (Romans 10:8)
  6. The Sword of the Spirit (The Word of God) – Let me on offense with the truth. Anoint the Word in my hand, my heart and my mouth. Let your Word do a work in me. Help me realize that your Word is alive and powerful and will sustain me. When in trouble, quicken your Word to my mind to gain victory against the enemy. (Hebrews 4:12)
  7. Praying Always in the Spirit – Let me give myself daily to prayer. Lord, I want to be faithful to prayer. I ask you to help me have the mind of Christ as I pray. Help me pray with Your heart and priorities in mind. Help me draw closer to you as I am led by Your Spirit in prayer. Use me to intercede for others. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. (Romans 8:27)
