In the Name of Jesus Christ, I humbly come before You, acknowledging Your sovereignty and power over all things. I confess my dependence on You and my need for Your protection and guidance.
I pray that You would reveal any areas in my life that are not in alignment with Your will, and I seek Your forgiveness and grace to overcome them.
I put on the full armor of God, standing firm in my faith and using Your Word, the sword of the Spirit, to defend myself against the attacks of the enemy.
I plead the Blood of Jesus over my mind, will, and emotions, trusting in Your protection and control.
I pray for blessings and protection for my family, friends, and loved ones, and I ask that You would use me as a light and witness for You in the world.
I give You thanks and praise for Your faithfulness and love. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. 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,
James 4:7 ESV
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
1 John 1:7 ESV
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
Colossians 3:12-17 ESV
Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
