07-23-17 Spiritual Armor – Praying in the Spirit

The Armor of God: Pray at All Times in the Spirit

Ephesians 6:10-20

This passage is about engaging in “spiritual warfare” against the devil. We can’t do it on our own, so God graciously and strategically gives us spiritual armor so we can be strong in the Lord, stand against the schemes of the devil and stand firm. God also gives us the gift of prayer so we can draw upon all of His resources.



  • Full armor: all is needed – Of God: gifts from God
  • Be strong in the Lord and in His Mighty power
  • Purpose: to stand against the devil’s schemes
  • *Belt of Truth *Breastplate of Righteousness (Christ’s)
  • *Feet Fitted with the Readiness of the Gospel of Peace
  • *Shield of Faith *Helmet of Salvation *Sword of the Spirit

Is prayer part of the armor of God?

Or does it underlie the whole process of spiritual warfare?

 Pray in the Spirit

  • Fellowship with the Holy Spirit
  • Help from the Holy Spirit
  • Hearing God’s Word (Sword of the Spirit – scripture)
  • For spiritual goals (Word of God – scripture)

Pray for All

  • All times
    • All kinds of prayers
  • All perseverance
    • All the saints

 Pray for the Advancement of the Mystery of the Gospel

  • God’s desire for all people to know Him
  • Appropriate words to show the glory of Christ
  • Boldness in sharing Christ
  • Valuing Christ above comfort
