The Full Armor of God
Praying Power Prayer
Lord of all Power and Might,
Today I come to you to ask you to bring me wisdom for my mind, determination for my will, and uplift for my emotions.
I proclaim that I will put on your mighty armor today.
I declare that I will be strong against the enemy forces that come to attack - or
distract - me today.

Consider visiting our
Armor of God Power Prayer Proclamations Page.
every day in my personal devotions,
I physically do the movements to put on
the full armor of God.
I act like the pieces are visible and
As I put on each piece,
I say words that show my respect for God and words that will ignite my determination to follow God.
The reason I choose to do this so often is because this activity always gives me a great blessing.
This week I hope you will consider
beginning or furthering
a daily desire
to put on
The Full Armor of God.
The Shield of Faith
It is a shield of confidence that God's Word is True.
Let's pick up the Shield of Faith.
We have an entire page
dedicated to the Shield of Faith.
We invite you to visit our Shield of Faith page.
The Shield of Faith -
I pick it up to - DEFEND - myself.
Who am I defending myself from?
How do I use my shield?
We are defending ourselves from the enemy.
God gives us a powerful shield so we can be active overcomers!
We have three voices in our head:
The enemy's voice sounds like our own voice. That makes it more difficult.
The enemy's voice comes from Satan's camp, but it is not actually Satan. The voice we hear is a low-level demon.
Satan's camp accuses us.
Notice that Satan is called - the accuser of the brethren.
Satan's camp tempts us.
Satan's camp tempts us to:
Satan's camp also belittles us, confuses us, deceives us, and twists Bible verses.
Think about this -
Satan's camp tempts us to do something
accuses and belittles us if we take the bait.
we read the word of God and pray,
we become better and better
at telling the difference
between our voice, God's voice, and the enemy's voice.
Using our Shield
we are attacked by the enemy or even by natural circumstances, we use
our shield of faith to declare the truth about our situation.
When the enemy speaks words against the Bible
or when the enemy LIES to us
"I'll never get a raise in pay"
we can raise our shield of faith
and declare the truth of God's word.
There are all kinds of scriptures we could say.
"All things are possible with God!"
I encourage you to SPEAK OUT the Word of God!
The following Power Prayer is taken from our
Shield of Faith page.
God of Creation - Mighty and True,
I come before you to thank you for giving me your strong armor.
I praise You for the power and authority you give me to use for your purposes.
Today I put on the Helmet of Salvation. Thank you, Lord, for saving me from hell and providing a heavenly home for me.
Lord, You designed my helmet to protect my thoughts. I will cooperate with You this day. I will allow godly thoughts to flow through my mind this day, and I will reject ungodly thoughts.
Thank you for my Shoes of Peace.
When I allow godly peace to guide me, I feel so good inside.
I put on my Shoes of Peace. They cushion each step that I take. These shoes help to reduce the friction and irritation that can naturally come as I live in this ungodly world.
I put on the Breastplate of Righteousness.
I want to be right with You.
Lord, I invite You to speak to me about any sin that I need to confess and ask forgiveness for. I want to feel totally comfortable with You.
Thank you for your wholehearted forgiveness toward me. And thank you for this breastplate that covers my heart - which is the very inner part of me.
Wearing this breastplate reminds me that You want ME to guard my heart. You want my heart to be tender and protected from impurity. I will make decisions that will protect my heart from sinful things.
I put on the Belt of Truth.
Today I renew my dedication to Your truth.
I will live within the boundaries of Your truth. I want to follow you more closely each day. I will tighten my belt so that I can feel it restraining me and protecting me from sin.
I pick up my Shield of Faith.
I will recognize doubt darts, and I will quickly respond.
I declare that every doubt dart that is fired at me will be met with faith and trust in You, Lord, and in Your Word.
Thank You for the Sword of the Spirit.
I pick up the Sword of the Spirit, and I give voice to the Word of God. I will become more and more comfortable speaking out Scriptures.
I will remind myself that when I speak out Your Scriptures, Your power is unleashed.
Now I am dressed and ready to live a life of dedication
to You, Lord,
in my words and in my actions.
