As I have been meditating, studying and memorizing Eph. 6:10-18 I have given much thought as to how one puts on the armor of God. While I think the key is to consciously recognize your position in Christ and to operate, renewing your mind in the Word and being filled with the Spirit – I also believe it is alway proper and good to pray God’s Word back to him. Here is a document I found where someone gathered the prayers of several men who routinely arm themselves through prayer. It’s not at all a bad idea to through prayer place each piece of armor in its place.
