Rocky times I have seen in my life
Trials and tribulations I have faced
Times when I am about to fail
The enemy puts doubts into my mind
Pushing me deeper into despair
How do I fight such a force?
What do I use to defend myself
Grabbing my shield
Wearing my breastplate
Buckling up my belt
Putting on my boots
Placing on my helmet
Taking a hold of my sword
I am prepared for battle
These are my armaments given to me by God
Strong in the Lord and Mighty in his Power
Taking my stand against the Devil I will fight
I pray to my Lord and Savior
Give me strength and courage to wage this war
Victorious I will be in His Love.
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
