Father, you are mighty. Lend me your strength. Clothe me in your armor. Protect me from evil schemes. Be with me and empower me in my struggles against authorities and powers. Enable me to stand firm on solid ground. Surround my inmost being with Truth. Protect my heart with the breastplate of righteousness, so that it may remain tender and life-giving. Prepare me to advance peace with your good news. Fortify my faith as a shield against the evil one for me and those I love. Recall to my mind your word and guide my hand to handle correctly the sword of the Spirit. Place on my head the helmet of salvation. May my thoughts be your thoughts. Keep me alert and vigilant in prayer. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
From Ephesians 6:10-18
