A Warrior’s Prayer

Almighty God,

I come before You today as a warrior in Your army. I put on the armor of God and ask for Your strength and protection as I go out to battle against the spiritual forces of evil.

I ask for Your wisdom to guide me in the fight, and for Your courage to give me the boldness to stand firm in the face of opposition. I ask for Your discernment to help me recognize the strategies of the enemy, and for Your power to overcome them.

I trust in Your promise that You have overcome the world and that through Your name, I too can overcome. I ask for Your provision to sustain me in this battle, and for Your presence to comfort me in times of hardship.

I pray for Your will to be done on earth as it is in heaven, and for Your kingdom to come and Your will to be done in my life, in my family, in my church, and in my nation.

I ask all these things in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Amen.

Ephesians 6:10-18 ESV

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,
