Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your
stand against the devil鈥檚 schemes. For our struggle is not
against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against
the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and
against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the
day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground,
and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm
then with the belt of truth buckled around your waist,
with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with
your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the
Gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield
of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming
arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and
the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. And
pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers
and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep
on praying for all the Lord鈥檚 people.
Acknowledge that you鈥檙e in a spiritual battle. Then,
claim the protection God has given you by praying
through the different pieces of armor described in
Ephesians 6.
Thank You, Lord, for my salvation. I receive it in a new
and fresh way from You, and I declare that nothing can
separate me from the love of Christ and the place I have in
Your Kingdom. I wear Your righteousness today against all
condemnation and corruption. Cover me with Your
