Prayer for Spiritual Armor

Heavenly Father,

We ask You today for Your truth
As a belt tight around our waists.

We put on the zeal
To announce Your good news of peace
As shoes for our feet.

We put on Your righteousness,
O Christ, as our breastplate.
And the hope of salvation
As a helmet for our head.

Father we take up faith
As a shield which is able to put out
All the fiery darts of the enemy.

And the sword of the Spirit,
Which is Your Word, O Lord.

Father may the love
With which You have loved Jesus,
Be in us and may Jesus be in us.

We ask You for the grace
Of a servant heart.
