Dear Lord, give me I pray, a deeper understanding of the hope of my calling and the part that You would have me to play in the spiritual dimension. I pray that I may be covered daily with the spiritual armour of God, which You have provided for all Your children, knowing that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against spiritual rulers and forces of evil.
Help me to gird up my mind with the gospel of truth, and to buckle on the breastplate of righteousness as I walk in the way of peace. Help me to maintain my trust in You and protect my heart and mind with the salvation I have in Christ.
Equip me I pray, with the sword of the spirit, which is the Word of God, so that I may be able to protect myself against the deceptive teachings and doctrines of demons that lead so many astray. And I pray that in Christ I may stand fast, knowing that it is in Him alone that our victory over the world, the flesh and the devil is secure. In Jesus' name,
