I am a Man of God. I am strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.
I wear the whole armor of God, so that I may be able to stand against the plans of my enemy, the devil.
For I do not merely fight against flesh and blood, but I war against the rulers and authorities, against the cosmic powers that preside over this present darkness and spiritual forces of evil that dwell in heavenly places.
Therefore, I take up the whole armor of God, that I may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having prepared myself well, to stand firm.
My waist is tightened with the belt of truth. My chest, secured with the breastplate of righteousness. The shoes that will carry my feet forward are the gospel of peace.
I Stand Ready.
Facing my advisary, I take up the shield of faith, with which I can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; I wear the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit with courage and intention.
To this end, I keep alert with all perseverance, making requests before God for all my brothers and sisters who are also in the fight.
I pray to God that the words given to me will be spoken with both courage and love. Proclaiming the mystery of the gospel as a warrior who is engaged in battle, I will declare the truth fearlessly and without reservation.
God has chosen my path. There is no other way.
|Stay True. Stay Ready.|
