Prepare for a battle
From 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting Guide
Call to Prayer
It doesn’t take much to find conflict, discord, and division all around us.
Ephesians 6:10-24 reminds us that while we are in a battle, our enemy isn’t made of flesh and bone. God has strengthened and equipped us for a spiritual battle.
Humble yourself today by confessing your inability to do this alone, knowing that Christ’s power is made perfect in our weakness. Strengthen yourself in the Lord by putting on the armor of God and asking for perseverance to stand firm against the devil’s schemes.
Ways to Pray
- Where does the enemy have a stronghold against you? Where do you need to trust God’s protection?
- If you’ve been believing the enemy’s lies more than God’s promises, confess and repent today. God is a good Father who understands and covers you with His grace.
- Ask God to show you which pieces of armor He most wants you to focus on today.
