the whole armor of god
" Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,"-Ephesians 6:13-18 (ESV)
I have always wondered, if we put the armor on every day or once it goes on it is there to stay. We see various elements like faith, peace, righteousness, truth, salvation, the Word of God and prayer. These I believe must be exercised daily. Prayer and the Word of God in-particular.
Truly Father, I want to be suited up, prepared to fight the good fight, win the battle for I know the victory belongs to You. I want to be a man of prayer and fight on my enemies. I will not fight my enemies except in prayer with the sword of the Spirit.
