Bible: Ephesians 6:12-20
6:12 For our struggle 1 is not against flesh and blood, 2 but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world rulers of this darkness, 3 against the spiritual forces 4 of evil in the heavens. 5 6:13 For this reason, take up the full armor of God so that you may be able to stand your ground 6 on the evil day, and having done everything, to stand. 6:14 Stand firm therefore, by fastening 7 the belt of truth around your waist, 8 by putting on the breastplate of righteousness, 6:15 by fitting your 9 feet with the preparation that comes from the good news 10 of peace, 11 6:16 and in all of this, 12 by taking up the shield 13 of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation 14 and the sword 15 of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 6:18 With every prayer and petition, pray 16 at all times in the Spirit, and to this end 17 be alert, with all perseverance and requests for all the saints. 6:19 Pray 18 for me also, that I may be given the message when I begin to speak 19 – that I may confidently make known 20 the mystery of the gospel, 6:20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may be able to speak boldly as I ought to speak.
