It seems every which way I turn I am hearing of family, friends, co-workers that are under attack...Spiritual Attack! I know that my family is not the only one under attack.
Several years ago my Sunday school class went through a study on the Armor of God. I learned so much from this study. Put my armor on everyday for a while ...then like other things tend to get relaxed and then the next thing you know you are not putting on the armor.I am currently reading a book that has "Armor of God Prayer" listed has a prayer to pray each morning to start your day.
With everything going on around us ...like the economy, financial scares, our children making decision that are not christian, our health, diseases, not to mention all the things going on out in the big big world...I wanted to share this prayer with you.
"Armor of God Prayer"
"Lord, I put on the belt of truth. Thank You that You provide us with the truth and that the truth has set me free. Next, I put on the breastplate of righteousness, which I know I have protecting me because Jesus is in my heart. Then I fit my feet with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace, and I pray that I will walk in peace today and take every opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with those I meet. I take up the shield of faith to guard my heart against all the flaming arrows of the evil one. I put on the helmet of salvation to protect my mind. Then, fully clothed in my spiritual armor, I take up the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God and the only true weapon I have to fight the raging battle that surrounds me." Ephesians 6:10-18
I have this taped on my bathroom mirror ....where I can see it each morning as a reminder to make sure that I clothed myself in spiritual armor each day.
I have learned so much in these last months ....one of things that I have learned is we are under attack everyday and we must be prepared to face these flaming arrows..what better way than with the Armor of God!
