Armor Of God

Lord,

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.

Amen.

Mercy And Strength

Lord,

Thank you for your grace,

your understanding, comfort, encouragement

in the midst of my failures and weakness.

Thank you that your voice never accuses,

nor condemns,

but draws close, strengthens, empowers,

so that I rejoice in your goodness,

your sweet kindness once again.

Fill me with faith again,

grant me strength,

give me vision and hope,

help me to persevere and be diligent,

and let me be bold and courageous

in your directives,

trusting you are with me,

your Spirit enabling and resuscitating

fresh power, ability, and skill

to fulfill your purposes for your glory.

I praise you and bless you Lord.

Amen.

Close

Lord,

thank you that you’re with me,

right by my side,

holding my hand,

walking, leading, guiding me,

you are my Good Shepherd.

Even as the storms rage around me,

I’ll keep myself here

in your presence and love,

keeping my eyes fixed on you,

I shall not fear,

and I will trust you,

letting your rod pull me closer,

your staff defeat my enemies,

you are with me

through the fire, deep waters,

the mountains and valleys,

you will not allow my feet to stumble.

Glorify your name through me Lord

no matter what I am going through,

help me to thank you,

praise you,

love you,

bless you.

You are my God,

and I know you are faitful.

I worship you.

Amen.

Protected

Lord,

I praise you for your love,

that I am loved by you,

it’s all that matters.

Chaos and turmoil

erupt around me,

my enemies speak against me,

but you uphold me

with your right hand,

you part the Red Sea

and my feet walk upon solid ground,

you hide me under your talit,

you keep me in your shadow,

you deflect the flaming arrows

returning it back on my enemies’ heads.

Your love strengthens my heart,

fills me with courage,

and I walk with my head held high,

knowing the Conquering Lion,

my Messiah and King

has me,

is for me, not against me,

delivering me from all my accusers,

rebuking my enemy,

declaring your claim over my life,

proclaiming my identity,

that I am your beloved,

I am yours

and you are mine.

Lord of Hosts,

my Refuge, my Strength,

I bless you!

Amen.

In His Hand

Abba,

thank you that you are for me,

you are with me,

you arise on my defense,

you are my avenger.

Let me stand firm in your love,

in faith in what your Son has done,

covering and cleansing me,

making me right before you.

I cast myself into your care.

I ask for your hedge of protection,

your fire wall to surround me,

your hand to cover me,

your talit to hide me.

Rebuke the enemy,

its cloud of accusations,

let the truth of the cross,

the blood of Yeshua

overcome every arrow

and speak a better word.

Release your angelic protection,

that my feet may not stumble,

and I would not shrink back from your call to follow you.

In your Son, I’m beloved,

and have everything I need to do your will.

Help me to walk firmly, unhesitating

in the paths you lead me on,

knowing you provide, you enable,

you empower, you give without reserve

all that I need,

your love and support overabounding,

your grace sufficient,

let me be faithful to you,

that I would fulfill your purpose

in my generation,

not by my strength,

but leaning in, depending on you,

and may you receive all the glory!

May heaven resound with my testimonies

of you on this side and into all eternity.

I praise you!

Amen.

I Will Praise

Lord,

I praise you in all my circumstances,

thankful that this can be my offering

when the enemy overwhelms

and life gets dark,

I’m blessed to praise you.

It’s a chance to exercise my faith

on this side of heaven,

such a simple act

where there’s sorrow, frustration, and pain,

where my eyes are still veiled,

and I only dimly perceive your Spirit,

I’m blessed to praise you.

Thank you that it’s what I’m made for,

the eternal preoccupation of my spirit,

to gaze upon your beauty,

worship you in truth and Spirit,

and wait upon your presence.

The enemy lies with distractions and anxieties,

tasks that push and press.

He’s a liar and deceiver,

and I cast these thoughts that overwhelm

into your care,

and I praise you.

I praise you for your salvation,

your mighty healing and deliverance,

your lovingkindness, mercy, and care,

your guidance, counsel, and leading.

I praise you for your timing,

your perfect will and ways,

your holiness, your mystery,

revealing yourself to the world,

to me.

I praise you Abba, Son, and Ruach,

I’m secure, I’m safe, I’m well content

in the fellowship of your beautiful presence.

Amen.

Simplicity & Intimacy

Lord,

thank you for your Word,

thank you for your Spirit.

Bring me back into simplicity,

learning to rest,

waiting on you

in simple devotion

and childlike faith.

Let me trust in your living Word,

your gracious guidance,

obeying with a wholehearted yes,

believing the goodness of your commands.

Help me to stand firm in faith,

knowing my steps are secure in you,

for your grace is sufficient,

you provide all I need for the day.

Release your revelation and resource,

divine appointments and angelic help,

strengthen my spirit, give me faith,

that my inner man would be strong,

rooted and grounded in your love,

full of hope and joy,

and I live true from the inside out,

Kiss me with your presence,

be my vision, my goal,

my great reward,

and let me love the process

because you are with me,

and the fullness of my joy,

purpose, peace, and life

is you alone.

Help me to cast the cares of this world on you,

so that I may keep first things first…

You.

You’ve already given all your heart to me.

I love you and bless you Lord.

Amen.

Content

Lord,

thank you that your eyes have seen,

your presence gone forth,

your Spirit secured,

the boundaries of my day

and my path through it.

I trust you will provide for all my needs,

as you give me breath to breathe,

and grace to live,

thank you for your love, peace, and strength

infusing me

to walk with you

and know you today.

I praise you that no matter what circumstances

or challenges may come across my path,

I have your spirit of power, love, and a sound mind,

your love unchanging, grounding, and covering me,

and your Spirit of wisdom and revelation

guiding me to level paths,

leveling mountains, raising up valleys.

I am content,

knowing I have every advantage

because you have my back,

you know me best,

you usher me into the paths and works

you’ve planned for me.

Have your way in me Lord,

you are the author and perfecter of my faith,

and I entrust my life to you.

Safe Savior,

thank you that your mercies, grace, and love

are new every morning.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Sweet Companionship

Lord,

You have shown me the Father,

gentle, generous, gracious, and kind,

good, wise, and perfect,

disciplining me for my good,

keeping me within pleasant boundaries

that are good for my soul.

You are my Provider,

meeting all my needs,

you are my Comforter,

you will never leave me nor forsake me.

You have given me everything I need,

every spiritual blessing

to walk in holiness and perfection in your eyes.

Help me to joyfully fellowship with you

in your suffering,

as you walked a stranger in this world.

Let me let go of my familiarity with the world,

to be your friend,

that my attachments to this world would fade away

in the light of your beautiful face,

and help me to just be still and walk

with you in the garden,

knowing there’s no other place I’d rather be

than with you as your companion.

I still my heart,

focusing my inward gaze upon you,

and I praise you and bless your Name.

Amen.

Sojourners

Lord,

help me to embrace the tension of being in this world

yet living for eternity.

Increase my faith,

let them be pillars within me,

to stand in your spiritual truths,

in the midst of culture’s temptations and my flesh.

Help me to examine my heart again and again

to clearly see and understand what I am truly living for.

Sift up my own deception,

expose my blind spots

where I am living for temporal comfort and gain.

I repent to you where the lines have gotten muddied in me,

and I ask you to cleanse my heart,

renew a right spirit,

grant me your perspective and incentive,

restore joy, peace, and hope

and help me to be steadfast in you.

Let me be ok in the struggle,

with the wrestle,

understanding that this is your call,

to live in your Spirit,

at odds with a world running the other way.

Help me to be wise and save souls,

obeying your voice,

following your instructions,

conducting myself honorably,

submitting my heart to your Word,

that the fruit of the Spirit

would bear witness to this world

of your Light.

Help me Lord,

you are worthy.

Amen.
