TEXT: Ephesians 6:10-20
Mighty God, you are powerful beyond measure! There is none who can rival Your glory. We pray that Your glory would shine brightly through us, Your church.
We thank You for telling us all that we need to know about life and godliness through Your Son, Jesus. Thank You for His life, death and victory over the enemy for us. We rest in His mighty power.
We thank You for the spiritual armor that is available to us by Your Spirit. Thank You that by such grace we can take our stand against the enemy. We know that our struggle is not against other people, but against the rulers, authorities and powers of this dark world. We recognize that there are unseen spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms and that our struggle is there.
So thank You for the armor that Paul described for us. We take it up and put it on so that we, as Your church, may take our stand against the scheming of the evil one.
We will pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. We will be alert and will keep on praying for all of Your people.
We pray that Your Word would be fearlessly spoken and the good news be proclaimed with power in this season to come. We pray that we, Your Church, would live out Your Word with power and that the mystery of the gospel would be made clear to others through our lives.
All for Your glory, we pray, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
