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 take up the shield of faith. My faith is in You and You alone. Apart from You, I can do nothing. With You, I can do all things. No temptation that comes my way can penetrate Your protecting hand. I will not be afraid, for You are going with me throughout this day. When I am tempted, I will claim my victory out loud ahead of time. There are fiery darts headed my way even now as I pray. Lord, You already know what they are and have already provided the way of escape.
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!
In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. – Ephesians 6:16
