“God, you are strong and you want me strong so I can stand up to everything the Devil throws my way. It’s a life or death fight to the finish against the evil one and all his angels. Prepare me. I’m up against far more than I can handle on my own.
Help me to take and use every weapon you have issued me: Truth, Righteousness, Peace, Faith and Salvation. May I learn to apply them.
Your word and prayer are indispensable weapons. May I come to love your word, finding it more precious than Gold and sweeter than honey. And may I learn to pray in The Spirt on all occasions, all kinds of prayers. May I pray bold and long.
Send people to encourage me so I don’t fall behind or drop out of the battle. Send someone to cheer me on in my faith. May love, faith and grace be mine who loves Jesus.
It’s in His name I pray. Amen.”
Ephesians 6:10-24 (The message version)
