The Armour of God: Prayer!
Ephesians 6:14-18 (NIV): Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
This month we are going to learn about the final piece of God’s amazing Armour: PRAYER.
There is nothing more powerful than prayer. All the pieces of God’s Armour get stronger when we make the right choices for living a God-first life!
So, let us today declare that we will:
– Speak the TRUTH by always being honest!
– Live RIGHTEOUSLY by choosing to live for God!
– Walk in PEACE by sharing our faith!
– Stand firm in our FAITH and in what we believe so that we can SHIELD ourselves from enemy attacks!
– Trust in Jesus as the cornerstone of our SALVATION!
– Spend time in God’s WORD so that through His SPIRIT, we can know the truth that sets us free!
Then, most importantly, let us PRAY every day! We can pray in our quiet time, with our families and friends. We can pray when we are happy and want to say thank you to God or when we are sad and need God’s help. We don’t need a special place and time to speak and listen to God. Prayer is a gift we’ve been given to be in conversation with our Heavenly Father whenever we want and wherever we are!
Our Father, who is in Heaven, thank You for giving us the gift of Your Armour to clothe ourselves daily. Help us to put it on so that we can stand firm in our faith, against our enemies. Let us use one of the most powerful gifts that You have given us, prayer, for the glory of Your Name and to bring people together!
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
