Oh Lord Jesus, help me dress this morning.
Enemies against me can strike without warning
I will start with my helmet to protect my mind
that devil can sneak in at any ol’ time
the Breastplate of Righteousness to place over my chest,
guarding heart and emotions from unwanted guests
the Shield of Faith stops temptations and darts
I rebuke you Satan, don’t even start
I am not fully clothed without the Sword of the Spirit
you can send me those lies, I will slice right through it
The Belt of Truth around my waist
protecting my will from things of distaste
the Holy Bible, I will need that, too.
when I get tempted, I will read your truth
and last but not least, I’ll put on my Shoes
Then I will be ready to spread the Good News.
