🌸

Put on every piece of God’s armour so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm (Ephesians 6:13; NLT).

🌸

1. May I find my feet, Lord,
As a Christian,
Wearing shoes of peace
To spread your word.

2. May I stand my ground, Lord,
In your armour,
Trusting in your righteousness
And truth.

3. May I take your shield, Lord,
For protection,
Counting on your strength
To guard my faith.

4. May I wear your helmet
Of salvation,
And bear your sword –
Until I see your face.

Be faithful

Be faithful, even to the point of death,
and I will give you life as your victor’s crown
(Revelation 2:10; NIV).

1. Be faithful
In the little things
The Lord entrusts to you.
Then he will give you
Greater tasks
He wishes you to do.

2. Be faithful
To the lowly place
The Lord asks you to take.
Then he will raise you higher
At the banquet,
For his sake.
