thank you so much for the explanations on the armor of God. I've heard of this before and read it in scripture, but didn't quite understand it.
This prayer is awsome and i've utilized it before, however, sometimes when i pray i tend to think mine are less important or they just don't work or i'm not being heard. I know this is not true. Anyway, I am grateful for finding this site and the people who are here.


"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."

Thanks Shelly for telling me where the favorites are, found it right off.

Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. (One Day at a Time)

"If U can't fly then run, if U can't run then walk, if U can't walk then crawl, but whatever U do U have 2 keep moving forward." And remember "Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever."

HOW TO RETRIEVE ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU HAVE SAVED ON SPARKPEOPLE:

1. (if you have a small monitor you need to go at the bottom of your monitor and take your mouse and drag it to that bar, move the page so that you can see all the things that appear on the right hand side of the sparkpeople's web site)
Look at the right hand side of the web site.(all the way to the right) There are boxes right? The first box has your trophy, and your points, look below until you se a box that has your spark favorites in it. It is the 6th box from the top box. You will find your spark favorites between, the quick lings box and the activity status box.

You can save recipes, threads (posts) articles, and maybe more on this web site, I am not sure. If anyone needs additional help PLEASE contact me, I would love to help you.

Pam, Shelly means to recite the verses each morning, praying over each of those areas in your life as you do. One friend of mine actually mimics putting on a helmet, a breastplate, sheathing a sword and so on as she recites the verses. Use a photo of yourself and cutouts of the armor and lay them on the photo, like paperdolls, as you recite the verses. Whatever it takes to make the verses real, alive, part of your life, go for it.

Thanks, Shelly, for sharing this.

I'm confused, I don't see a prayer to pray that you keep mentiioning.

Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. (One Day at a Time)

"If U can't fly then run, if U can't run then walk, if U can't walk then crawl, but whatever U do U have 2 keep moving forward." And remember "Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever."

Thanks for this, I have saved it, but how do I find it now that it is saved?

THE ARMOR OF GOD

Ephesians 6:10-18

Be strong in his word and in his mightily power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devilís schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against rulers, against authorities, against the powers of the dark world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in heavenly places. Therefore put on the full armor of God. So, when the evil day comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after having done everything to stand. Stand firm them with the belt of truth tightened around your waist, with the breast plate of righteousness in place, and your feet fitted with the gospel of peace. In addition to all this take up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit which is the word of God. Pray in the spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers & requests.

Please save this message. Keep it and say this powerful prayer every day, then watch your life change. For these spiritual words are more important than food, water, vitamins, or clothes. Yet just as you shelter and protect your body with clothes so should you put on these spiritual clothes every day. These things I have learned about saying the armor of God. These things I know to be true.

As you say the words in the armor of God remember:

The belt of truth

Represents what is true in God's word (the bible) all the things that God gives us that the bible talks about. Tighten the belt of truth means, believing what is really true, not the lies the devil tells you about a situation, or when the devil tries to make you feel bad.

The breast plate of righteousness

This protects our heart, our being, our identity. The devil loves to attack who we are. Think about it, doesn't the devil tell you that; you are a bad mom, daughter, and or wife/husband? He knows that it hurts us so much. He has been doing it for so long we think they are our own thoughts. God has told me that they are the devilís thoughts that he whispers to us. When you are attacked God wants you to remember the real way God sees you. He wants you to remember the truth. He loves you, and has already forgiven you.

Feet fitted with the gospel of peace

Don't lose the peace God gives you each day. Most times it is stolen before we realize it was there. The devil tries to rob, steal, and destroy all that we love, all the things we need to live a happy life. One of the things the devil tries harder than anything else is to take away our peace. You know how a fighter gets into a stance before a fight? Visualize this as you say these words, and your feet fitted with the gospel of peace.

Take up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

The devil uses people to hurt us. Words, hurtful actions, anger from other people, anything that pierces your heart, just like an arrow- when you take up (hold up) the shield of faith, you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows that come out of a person's mouth, and body as the result of from their actions.

Take the helmet of salvation

Hamlets are used for your head. God tells us to put on the helmet of salvation to protect our thoughts. It is our thoughts that lead us to sin. We think about something or someone who has hurt us and we do or say mean things. The devil attacks our thoughts so that we will sin against God. When we sin against God we tend to remove ourselves from Him.


Take the sword of the spirit which is the word of God

When you visualize yourself lifting up this sword, as you say these words know that God's words contain POWER, so feel that spiritual power you now posses from God's protection. The sword of the spirit is the words in the bible. The meaning of the bible, God's spoken words in it, it has the ability the cut straight through the devil and destroy HIM!!!!

Pray in the spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers & requests

It says with all occasions with all kinds of prayers & requests. It doesn't say; pray when you think your life is threatened. It doesn't say, pray only when you might get fired. It says, with ALL kinds of prayers & requests. That means God wants you to pray about that bad hair day after you get out of the shower, the traffic jam on your way to work, and that vending machine that keeps calling your name throughout your work day. When you get home and your kid has gotten on your last nerve.... and then during that night you realize that your husband/wife or kid still has not done.... yet, even though they have told you 20 times they would do it. Ya, that IS what, pray in the spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers & requests, means.

Saying this prayer has changed my life. The devil used to attack me so bad at times it was truly unbelievable at times. My mom was the one who told me to start saying it. I started to say it, but not all the time. Sometimes 6-8 months would pass and I had not said it. I was still being attacked by the devil in a bad way. My mom told me I had to say it every day. I asked her, God knows that I want protection, why do I have to keep asking him? You see, God WILL protect us, but he only asks us to make an effort to say the armor of God each day. It only takes less than a minute. God has been giving me this extra spiritual power of truth, righteousness, peace, shield of faith, salvation, the sword of the spirit. Can you imagine how much money a person would make if they bottled these things up and sold it on an info commercial? Godís power is NOT for sale. He died and gave it to us already. It is ours for the taking. So, why did it take me so long to receive so many wonderful things that ultimately changed my life?
