Strengthen me in you,
let me be empowered
knowing your Spirit dwells within me.
Teach me, show me, help me
to put on and stand in the full armor of God.
When the darkness presses in,
and the schemes, wiles, and deceits of the evil one.
Grant me success and victory,
standing firm with an overcoming spirit,
immovable and absolutely ready,
filled with power, love, and a sound mind.
Grant me an upright heart as my breastplate,
truth, courage, and integrity to bind around my waist,
feet quick to run with the good news,
hoisting up a shield of faith,
to extinguish the fiery arrows of the enemy.
Let me put on the helmet of salvation
wield the sword of your Spirit,
thinking upon your beautiful works,
testifying of your Truth.
Fill me with a spirit of prayer,
alert, active, discerning, persevering,
passionate in my requests,
so that your presence may be with me,
your power at work all around,
and that heaven may come upon earth.
I praise you and bless you Lord.
