Scriptures from Ephesians 6:13-17
I put on the Armor of God. I put on the Helmet of Salvation that protects my mind from the enemy. I put on the Breastplate of Righteousness, which protects my heart from the enemy. I put on the Belt of Truth. The truth is that Jesus is the only way to heaven. I put on the Shoes of Peace, so that I can go tell others the good news about Jesus. I pick up the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Bible. I hold us the Shield of Faith, which stops the fiery darts of the devil. I know that I am a victor and not a victim, and I love you Lord Jesus with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my strength. In Jesus' name, Amen.
