Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for your gift of understanding given through Your Holy Spirit that dwells in me. Forgive me for my doubts and strengthen my resolve to rely on You. Let the eyes of my understanding be enlightened that I may know the HOPE of Your Calling, Your Inheritance, Your Power, and Your Dominion in my life and also those around me. For this I bow my head and heart and ask to be empowered through Your Spirit for the battles that surround me and that I may have the greatest of confidence in Christ Jesus who dwells in my heart and mind so I can draw courage from the Love He has for me. Because of these things and what Your Word tells me, I know the enemy is not powerful, he can not read my mind. Only You God are omnipresent, omniscient, and can work miracles. Only You God are eternal. I am already seated in heavenly places with You because of my relationship with Jesus. The place to my spiritual battle is accessible, my weapons are physical, and my victory is absolutely guaranteed. I have every spiritual blessing in high places. I will put on my defenses, the armor You gave to me God: Truth, Righteousness, Peace, Faith, Salvation, and Prayer. I am equipped and I will use these tools to stand firm.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
Study Ephesians 6:10-20. A good resource is Pricilla Shirer’s, The Armor of God, Bible study. This was my first prayer strategy I was able to develop after week one. It is a valuable lesson and tool we, as Christians, need.
