Chef Greg and Shayne recently shared a prayer
they often declare and pray on their way to work each day!
The Armor of God
I put on the belt of truth… I will walk in integrity today. Falsehood and lies will be kept far from me. I will speak the truth today.
I put on the breastplate of Righteousness. My heart will be protected today. My emotions will be protected today. I will not be moved into action by my feelings but by Your will. I will not let my emotions rule. I will let the Mighty Hand of God alone rule my life and my actions.
I put on the shoes of Peace. I will walk in Your perfect peace today. I will not stir up strife against others and strife will not be stirred up against me.
I take up the shield of Faith. With it I will extinguish the fiery darts of my adversary. I will not be moved to act by my circumstances. I will trust in God and stand firm in Him.
I put on the helmet of Salvation. My mind will be protected. My thoughts will be protected today. I will tear down every thought and imagination that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.
I take up the sword of the Spirit. I will use it both offensively and defensively today. I will use it to be conviction, correction, and encouragement to my brother and I will use it to bring Truth to those who do not know You.
I stand fully dressed in my armor, ready to stand against my enemy. I am covered by The Blood and stand in the authority of the Name of Jesus Christ. I WILL NOT TAKE OFF MY ARMOR!
