Ephesians 6:10-20

10Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength.11Put on the full armorof God so that you can stand against the tacticsof the Devil.12For our battle is not against fleshand blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities,against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evilin the heavens.13This is why you must take up the full armorof God, so that you may be able to resistin the evil day, and having prepared everything, to take your stand.14Stand,therefore,
with truthlike a belt around your waist,
righteousnesslike armor on your chest,
15and your feet sandaled with readiness
for the gospel of peace.
16In every situation take the shieldof faith,
and with it you will be able to extinguish
all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
17Take the helmetof salvation,
and the swordof the Spirit,
which is God’s word.

18Prayat all times in the Spiritwith every prayer and request, and stay alertin this with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.19Pray also for me, that the message may be given to me when I open my mouth to make known with boldnessthe mystery of the gospel.20For this I am an ambassadorin chains. Pray that I might be bold enough in Him to speak as I should.
