Most Powerful Prayer: The Warrior’s Prayer – Putting On The Armor of God

One of the best ways to protect ourselves from the fiery darts of the enemy is to put on the Armor of God, the “warrior’s uniform.” Ephesians 6 describes the Armor of God as the Helmet of Salvation, the Breastplate of Righteousness, the Sword of the Spirit, the Belt of Truth, the Shield of Faith, the Shoes of Peace, as well as Prayer. This Armor is metaphorical and spiritual because the battle being waged for our soul is just that: spiritual. More often than not, we cannot physically see the battle happening … but it is. And if we are not careful by staying protected in prayer, we will eventually begin to physically see the results of those attacks manifested in our lives. Simply put, without the Lord’s Armor, our mind, body, soul and/or environment (family, relationships, etc) can quickly become easy targets for the enemy and his minions.

The Warrior’s Prayer is an easy and powerful prayer to recite when you are feeling under pressure, defeated, exhausted, uncertain or attacked (in any way), or when you just want an added layer of protection around you. It is short enough to memorize and to pray quickly before any activity. Let us never forget how powerful prayer is. In fact, we are exhorted to “pray without ceasing” (1 Thes 5:17). Even though we cannot always see the battle the battle be waged, when we pray the devil must flee.

The Warrior’s Prayer – Putting On The Armor of God

Heavenly Father,
Your warrior prepares for battle.
Today I claim victory over Satan by
Putting on the whole Armor of God!

I put on the Girdle of Truth!
May I forever stand firm in the Truth of
Your Word so I will not be victim to Satan’s lies.

I put on the Breastplate of Righteousness!
May it guard my heart from evil so I will remain
Pure and holy, protected under the blood
of Jesus Christ.

I put on the Shoes of Peace!
May I stand firm in the Good News of the Gospel
so Your peace will shine through me and be a
Light to all I encounter.

I take the Shield of Faith!
May I be ready for Satan’s fiery darts of
doubt, denial, and deceit so I will not
be vulnerable to spiritual threats or defeat.

I put on the Helmet of Salvation!
May I keep my mind focused on You so
Satan will not have a stronghold
on my thoughts and emotions.

I take the Sword of the Spirit!
May the two-edged sword of Your Word
be ready in my hands so I can expose
the tempting yet false words of Satan.

By faith, your warrior has put on the
Whole Armor of God!
I am prepared to live this day,
with and through Jesus Christ,
our Lord,
and with complete spiritual victory!
Thanks be to God!

I pray this all in His Good and Holy Name.

Prayer Adapted from Dr. David Jeremiah’s Warrior Prayer

For Reflection

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full Armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand”Eph. 6:12-13.

  1. I thank God for the successful conduct of the end second-semester exam. I thank him for his protection towards my kids and family while I was busy and also thank him for his strength and protection throughout the period. I am most grateful for our going out and coming in. Father fight those who fight us physically and spiritually through the intercession of St Michael the archangel. Lord kindly hear our prayer request for Moses Abayase and Matthew Abayase for the job they applied for. Remember Abraham Abayase also. And direct our ways and taught. Have mercy on the entire family and grant us peace. Amen

    i just want to express my greatest gratitude & appreciation for been given the blessing to be able to find prayer through this site. Ive had a pretty long complicated & very difficult journey that i know i still have so much further to go. It has been a long & lonely road. I have carried my love, faith and belief in my God & that through him all things are possible & know that he & his angels have been with me since the very beginning. Ive been blessed to see with my own two eyes that GOD has made all things possible & I have never let lost sight of God even when I had no choice to walk beside the darkness at times in life that would lead me to look death right in the face every time because of my faith ,love and commitment to you my God & the evil that lurks around me? Can see & feel & infuriates them, a constant & beautiful light that shows according to what those who did & attempted & still attempt to continue to once and for all devour me & put my light out from me eventually. Thats what they have always expressed to me. I am not afraid because of you God that you are my courage ,strength & bravery that Ive blessed from you to carry with me that has kept & still keeping me alive today. Thank you God for all your beautiful blessings & the light that is so bright the enemy can see that i feel so been blessed to have received from you that no matter what? Has a way of always shining & continues to guide me through my most darkest journeys that will be with me until the time when you shall call me home to finally rest in your everlasting peace& love. God, I know & believe that the my prayers, faith & loyalty & commitment to you God & devotedly praying to the Psalms…91 Psalm to be exact along with the Ephesians 6 is the prayer that gas kept me alive today.. May you continue to guide & protect me in all your ways til the beautiful day when you shall call me to come home.. Amen
