Prayer of a Warrior

Lord God,

I come before You today as a warrior in Your army. I trust in Your strength and power to protect and guide me as I go into battle. I humbly ask for Your guidance and wisdom as I face the challenges ahead.

I pray that You would grant me the courage to stand firm in my faith and to be a bold witness for You. I ask for Your protection over my mind and body, and for the strength to endure any hardship that may come my way.

Furthermore, I pray for Your grace and mercy to be upon those for whom I am fighting, and that through my actions, they may come to know You as their Lord and Savior.

I put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, I may be able to stand my ground, and having done everything, to stand.

I pray all these things in the name of Jesus, who is 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,
