During the Lenten season, our Monday prayers will follow the theme of Victory in Christ, specifically by praying, section-by-section, the “Whole Armor of God Prayer,” written by Charles Stanley.
Good morning Lord. Thank you for assuring me of victory today, if I will but follow Your plan. Today, I put on the sandals of the gospel of peace. I am available to You, Lord. Send me where You will. Guide me to those who need encouragement or physical help of some kind. Use me to solve conflicts whenever they may arise. Make me a calming presence in every circumstance in which You place me. I will not be hurried or rushed, for my schedule is in Your hands. I will not leave a trail of tension and apprehension. I will leave tracks of peace and stability everywhere I go. Help me to stand and walk in Your peace and to move forward in ways that bring Your peace and love to others. Help me to have the full confidence and assurance that come from knowing that I am filled with the peace that only You can give to those who are Your children.
Lord, I go now rejoicing that You have chosen me to represent You to this lost and dying world. May others see Jesus in me, may Satan and his hosts shudder as Your power is made manifest in me. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN!
Stand firm therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth and having put on the breastplate of righteousness and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace… – Ephesians 6:14
