A Prayer to Resist the Devil and Draw Closer to God
“LORD, thank You so much for always loving me and protecting me every day of my life.
Today, I humbly pray for You to bless me with the strength to resist the devil and ALL spiritual attacks from evil enemies.
Help me draw closer to You as I turn away from sin, temptation, and all distractions.
LORD, I pray You will help me put on Your FULL ARMOR to fight against the enemy’s wicked schemes and attacks.
May I always remember that I am Your child – and nothing the devil can do will ever change that!
Bless me as I put on Your belt of Truth and breastplate of righteousness (Ephesians 6:14). I hold firmly onto my faith in JESUS – who died on the cross for my sins.
Father, fit my feet with the readiness of Your Gospel of peace that is JESUS (Ephesians 6:15).
Give me strength to raise up my shield of faith as You defend me against ALL the flaming darts of the enemy! (Ephesians 6:16)
With Your helmet of salvation, block out from my mind all evil lies, as I celebrate Your perfect gift of salvation in Christ. (Ephesians 6:17)
LORD, arm me with the sword of the Spirit, Your Holy Bible. Fill me with a deeper thirst to know Your Word as Your Holy Spirit guides me. (Ephesians 6:17)
Lastly, LORD, spur in me an even greater desire to keep praying to You. I shall turn to You in all that I do, repenting for my sins as I trust you in faith and courage.
THANK YOU Father! I am grateful that You will help me resist the enemy as I draw closer to You.
In Christ, I know You are with me – so who can ever stand against me? (Romans 8:31) The victory is Yours!
Wearing Your armor, I surrender myself to Your unfailing love and greater will.
In JESUS’ mighty name I pray, AMEN!”
