“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of the evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:11-12 NIV
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for supplying us with YOUR amazing armor. As we protect ourselves from an unseen virus each day with face masks and protection help us remember each day to additionally suit up spiritually to face and challenge the evils of this world with your confidence and grace. Protect us further with your legions of angels from the dark forces that are unseen to us and our families. Teach us in our spirit the importance of the helmet of salvation, sword of the spirit, belt of truth, and breastplate of righteousness.
Lord, clothe our leaders, their advisors, and Christian leaders in this country daily with your armor. Allow them to see spiritually with an undeniable truth the spiritual warfare that is taking place and cover them from head to toe with your protection and strength to keep fighting the good fight and pressing on like your faithful soldiers. As the evil one lurks to take them down, I ask that you slay him quickly to abolish his evil ways and desires that only come to kill, steal, and destroy the lives of others. Thank you for protecting and covering our righteous ones with the blood of Christ.
We ask and pray all these things in the Holy name of Jesus!
Amen and Amen
