I’m excited to share with you a prayer I wrote last year. The first time I used this prayer was at a leadership event at which my dear friend, Lisa Allen, and I spoke in Albuquerque last August. We closed our event praying this prayer … 1,000 women standing together, locked hand in hand, cloaking our hearts, minds and bodies in the Armor of God.
And then last month, the Lord gave me the opportunity to share it again at our Proverbs 31 She Speaks Conference. At the close of our session, Lisa Allen, Micca Campbell, and I had the honor and privilege of anointing over 200 women as they recommitted their hearts and their callings to God. Immediately after the anointing, we stood together, hearts aligned, and clothed ourselves in God’s Armor. As the words poured forth from our mouths, the Spirit felt so thick and full … I thought, surely the Presence of the Lord is in this place.
Sweet and faithful friends, my heart desires the same for you!! You are such a gift in my life. My prayer warriors. My encouragers. My true blessings from the Lord.
So, as this prayer goes out over my blog, I’m praying fervently for God to move in our midst. I don’t know when you will arrive to find the prayer and pray it, but God does. He knows who needs to be empowered and equipped with His Ephesians 6 Armor. Please know as I type these words, I am praying for every single women God draws here … and that includes YOU. Please leave your name in the comments below so that I can jump on and pray you by name.
Praying on the Armor
Heavenly Father, today we pray on Your Armor. Father, strengthen me with Your Helmet of Salvation. I am Your blood bought baby girl, a saved child of God. You have given me the Mind of Christ so that I can STAND against the culture and the lies of the evil one.
Father, cover my heart with the Breastplate of Righteousness. Thank You that Jesus defeated the power of sin and death at the cross, and it no longer has power over me. You have forgiven me of me of my sin and clothed me with Your righteousness. I STAND on that gift!
Father, gird me with the Belt of Truth. I believe with all my heart that Your Word is truth, and it is that truth and that truth alone that sets me free. I choose to believe Your truth and reject the lies of the evil one. I STAND centered and strong against his temptations, deception, schemes and accusations.
Father, I put on the Shoes of the Gospel of Peace. Make me ready to march into any battle set before me. Fill me with Your peace. I choose to be an instrument of that peace, to always forgive and not harbor bitterness, anger and unforgiveness in my heart. I STAND ready to live out and give an account for the faith I have in You today.
Father, I hold up the Shield of Faith. I trust and believe You at Your Word that You are the King of kings, the Lord of lords, the Great I AM. You alone are the Author and Perfecter of my faith. I trust You to meet all my needs. I reject a spirit of fear and STAND in the spirit of Your power, love and a sound mind.
Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit. I load my arsenal with Your rhema words given directly from Your heart to mine. I choose to hide Your Word in my heart. I choose to believe Your truth over Satan’s lies. Pour out Your Truth and Your Spirit over my life. Fill me with all wisdom and understanding. I choose this day to STAND on Your living and active Word.
Thank You, Father, for Your mighty weapons. Thank You that You have already won this battle. Thank You that I am a victor and that greater is You who lives in me than he who lives in this world. Thank You that I can do all things through Your Son, Jesus, who strengthens me. Today I surrender my battles to You and come under Your power and Your authority. Fill me with the fullness of Your Spirit. Use me to do Your Kingdom work. Father, show me Your Shekinah glory as I march onward as a child of the LIVING GOD. I ask all this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
