The Armor of God Prayer
Referenced from Ephesians 6:10-20. I wrote this as I understand it
and applied to myself. You may apply it to yourself.
While standing, say:
I put on the whole armor of God so that I can be able to withstand
in the evil of the day and having done all, I stand having my loins
girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness,
my feet are shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace, above
all I take the shield of faith wherewith I am able to quench all the
fiery darts of the wicked. I take the helmet of salvation, and the
sword of the spirit, which is the word of God. I will pray always
with prayer and supplication in the spirit, allowing the Holy Spirit
to help me know my “needs” and to distinguish “needs” from “wants,”
persevering in prayer for all saints (ALL mankind) especially for
myself, that I may not commit the sin of omission against myself.
I am an ambassador no longer in bondage and speak boldly as I ought
to speak concerning the gospel of Christ. The Holy Spirit is my
comforter sent to me for that same purpose so I may know MY affairs
and how I should do and that the Holy Spirit may comfort my “heart
of hearts”. I pray for peace for all mankind and petition grace for
all who love our Lord and Savior in sincerity and mercy to those
who do not know Christ.
The Lord, God, Abba Father will never leave me nor forsake me
though sometimes I may “feel” or “think” it be so. Help me
distinguish between “feeling” words and “thinking” words to better
understand myself and how others and things affect me and how
I may affect them.
Lord, God reveal Yourself to me and dwell in me so strongly that
I cannot turn my back on you. May I always walk in Your light so
You support me lest I fall. With You there is no darkness but
Jehovah Jireh, I know You are my provider and You are making
provisions for my finances to meet my “needs”. The more I follow
You, the more my “needs” will be met and the more my “wants”
and “desires” may be fulfilled to Your satisfaction for me.
Jehovah Rapha, my healer, You are healing me as I speak. The
more I profess Your healing powers the more healing my body
The more I follow You, Jehovah Shammah, the more my “dreams”
will come true and I will have enough time and monies to enjoy
Your wondrous beauties of the earth. The more I follow You the
more I will have the energies to follow You with all my “heart
and soul” and all I have. I own nothing because all I have
belongs to You, my earthly possessions, my children, my family,
and my friends.
You, El Shaddai, have blessed me with the gift of singing,
writing, sewing, the dance, clowning, building websites,
teaching, creating and editing graphics, public speaking (this
is where you substitute your talents here) and I dedicate myself
and my gifts to You for they are Yours already. Keep me humble,
Lord. Bring to my awareness, should I boast, that You gave me my
gifts and You can take them away if I don’t use them for Your glory.
Bring to my remembrance, God, the difference between boasting
and professing is to whom I give the glory.
Remind me, Adonai, only You can put a price on a human being.
What is my worth compared to others? Am I worth more? No.
Is my time worth more? No. Don’t let me forget, in your eyes,
we are all equal regardless of circumstance.
I dedicate my gift of joy to You, Yahweh, for no one, no evildoer
can steal my joy because it is a gift from You. Abba Father,
You are my Lord, to You I bow down. Cleanse me and mold me into
what You desire me to be and make my desires Your desires for me.
I honor You, Jehovah Tsidkenuh, by not being ashamed of me because
You “don’t make no junk” and I am not “junk.”

Paul was in bondage in prison when he wrote the letter to the
Ephesians. I am NOT in bondage because I am a child of God.
Therefore I wrote that I am no longer in bondage.
Sometimes in today’s world, people think more with their feelings
as opposed to what they truly believe and/or think. There is a
difference. Emotions are just that, a reaction or response to
something. What we believe is what causes the emotions and/or
feelings to occur. Therefore, it is what we think/believe that
is important. Belief is backed by tested support or theory and
brought to reality by our actions. Our actions are the physical
(overt) or mental (covert) reactions or responses to our actions
or the actions of others. Responses are usually a positive
whereby reactions are usually a negative.
Not praying for ourselves is the sin of omission which can cause
the “good works” that we do the work of the devil. Think about
that one. When we continually keep doing good things and do not
take care of ourself, neglect our family, or our job, we begin
working for the devil. There has to be a balance.

Ephesians 6:10-17; 18-20
Battle against Evil.
10 Finally, draw your strength from
the Lord and from his mighty power. 11 Put on the armor of
God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics
of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not with flesh and
blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with
the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil
spirits in the heavens. 13 Therefore, put on the armor of
God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and,
having done everything, to hold your ground. 14 So stand
fast with your loins girded in truth, clothed with
righteousness as a breastplate, 15 and your feet shod in
readiness for the gospel of peace. 16 In all circumstances,
hold faith as a shield, to quench all [the] flaming arrows
of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation and
the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Constant Prayer. 18-20
18 With all prayer and supplication, pray at every
opportunity in the Spirit. To that end, be watchful with
all perseverance and supplication for all the holy ones
19 and also for me, that speech may be given me to open
my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the
gospel 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains, so that
I may have the courage to speak as I must.
