21 Days of Prayer and Purpose

Day 18

Ephesians 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; 19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

Armour has such a specific purpose in its use. As Paul wrote to the church in that day, he references the necessity of protection and preparing ourselves for the battlefield. The field of battle is never a neat and pleasant place but rather a place of hurts and pains because of the struggle. Each one on the field is following the commander in chief and from Him they move on his orders.

Paul wanted to make sure that the saints understood that the whole armour of God was exactly what was needed for a successful victory. Loins, breastplate, feet, shield and helmet. Each serving a purpose and yet all so very important. Along with the covering we have, we also possess in our hands, the Word of God in the Spirit of His might.

Once prepped for the engagement of war we must pray always. Prayer must exist with the protection of the Lord. Praying in the Spirit. Watching and persevering in your desires to see the victory. We cannot lay down and quit. We must speak the Word and pray the Word. As you pray in this season, pray hard for the Word of God to have its way in the world in which we live. Pray always!
