Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Dear Father, my support in battle, Help me stand, having put on my body the garments of TRUTH and the bullet-proof vest of the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF JESUS, having put on my feet the combat boots of PREPARATION IN THE GOOD NEWS OF PEACE, and besides these, having taken in hand the shield of TRUST IN GOD. (I feel like I need a gas mask of DISCERNMENT to protect me from the poison of Satan's propaganda.) Give me the wisdom that comes with the helmet of SALVATION and the zeal to take up the assault weapon of the SPIRIT, THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD. With all these in place, let me stand my ground . . . and fight! In the name of Jesus, the forger of our armor, I pray.
