Putting on the Armour of God

In the name of Jesus, I put on the whole armour of God, that I may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil; for I wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, the rulers of darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places.

Therefore I take unto myself the whole armour of God, that I may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. I stand, therefore, having my loins girt about with Truth. Your Word, Lord, which is truth, contains all the weapons of my warfare, which are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.

I have on the breastplate of righteousness, which is faith and love. My feet are shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace. In Christ Jesus I have peace and pursue peace with all men. I am a minister of reconciliation, proclaiming the good news of the Gospel.

I take the shield of faith, wherewith I am able to quench every fiery dart of the wicked, the helmet of salvation, (holding the thoughts, feelings and purpose of God’s heart), and the Sword of the spirit, which is the Word of God. In the face of all trials, tests, temptations and tribulation, I cut to pieces every snare of the enemy with the Word of the Lord.

I put on this full armour daily and keep it in place, as a true soldier of the Kingdom of Heaven, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
