And take the helmet of deliverance;along with the sword given by the Spirit, that is, the Word of God; as you pray at all times, with all kinds of prayers and requests, in the Spirit, vigilantly and persistently, for all God’s people.
Of all the pieces of the armor of God that Sha’ul describe it is our trust in the salvation from Yeshua and our dependence on scripture that powers our prayers at all times. As Sholomo says in Proverbs a person’s prayers without trust in the Word is an abomination. We must focus on the Word so as to pray properly. Lord let me always follow Your leading and not get distracted by my own selfish desires. I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
