Prayer

The armour of God

Put on the full armour of God (Ephesians 6:11; NIV).

“Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves” (Matthew 10:16; NKJV).

Stay alert! Ephesians 6:18; NLT).

Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. And do everything with love (1 Corinthians 16:13-14; NLT).


Lord,
Thank you
For your armour.

I’m putting it on right now –
So I can face the day.

May your shield
Protect my body,

Your helmet
Protect my mind,

Your breastplate
Protect my heart,

And your sword
Protect my soul.

Help me to stay alert,
Always ready to defend myself
From toxic people –

Bravely,
Wisely,
And with love.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.
