Full Armor of God

Father, I come to You this morning and I put on the full armor of God.
HELMET OF SALVATION: Father this morning I put on the helmet of salvation to guard my mind today. Guard what I think, hear, see and speak and I subject every thought to the Lordship of Jesus. Help me to take every thought captive to make it obedient to Christ. I declare today that I have the mind of Christ according to Your Word.
BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS: I put on the breastplate of righteousness to guard my heart, my will and my emotions. It is not my righteousness, but the righteousness of Christ through what He did on the cross. Today I am honored to live out His righteousness that He places within me. Father, protect me from reacting to circumstances and people emotionally. Let me respond with the spirit of Christ, and not out of my emotions.
BELT OF TRUTH: Father, I put on the belt of truth. Jesus You are the Truth-satan you are a liar. Today I choose to believe the truth about who God is and who I am in Christ. I am a son/daughter of God, joint heirs with Christ. I have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus. I have been filled with the Holy Spirit and today I will live a victorious life according to the Word of God which is Truth. Father, today give me the discernment to know the difference between right and wrong, truth and error.
PREPARE MY FEET TO RUN WITH THE GOSPEL OF PEACE: Lord, today wherever my feet take me I will represent the good news of Jesus. I will use my life to be an expression of Your deep and inner peace. Your Word says “beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.” Today I will bring the good news of Jesus and the power of what He did on the cross to a dying and hurting world.
SHIELD OF FAITH: Father, today I take up the shield of faith which will, according to Your Word extinguish the flaming arrows of the enemy. The shield will not only stop the flaming arrows, but as I choose to stay behind the shield in humility I will be protected from every assault that comes against me. Today I declare with my mouth that YOU, O Lord are the only true and living God and my faith is in YOU and YOU alone.
SWORD OF THE SPIRIT: Lord, today I take up the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. It is alive and active and sharper than any two-edged sword. Today I choose to apply the Word of God and its wisdom to every situation I face. I will hide Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You. From Your Word I will seek wisdom, discernment and direction as I seek to do Your will. Your Word will be the weapon I deploy to defeat the schemes of the enemy.
Lord, I thank You for giving me the full armor of God which will protect me today. As I put on the armor I seal this act in confidence in Christ and His finished work. I plead The Blood of Jesus over everyone You can read in my heart, from the crown of their head to the tips of their toes and Lord I ask to place a hedge of protection around myself, my family and all my brothers and sisters in Christ and my friends on and out of Facebook…Lord, I ask that by Your Spirit You guard and protect me so that I can accomplish all that You asked me to do. Lord, I consider it a privilege to love and serve You and I declare with my mouth that there is none like YOU. I love YOU with all my heart; YOU are a good Father. May my life be pleasing to YOU. I worship YOU in spirit and in truth.
