Lord Jesus, I ask in Your Name, a request to keep my friends and family safe in this struggle to bring to light the dark forces of evil. As they open their eyes to the truth, let not their hearts be troubled, but give them understanding that You have told us these things must happen.
Help us to see the Enemy when he attacks so that we can recognize when he does. Give us the wisdom to know that we fight an invisible foe who is stronger than we are and we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against the powers of darkness and the rulers of evil, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers in the present age. Let us understand that we are fighting against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
Thank You, God, for providing the armor we will need today and everyday, including the breastplate of righteousness You provided, the belt of truth, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is Your Word.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
