The believer's armor

We are warned by God in His Word to wear  His 6 fold armor:

  1. Helmet of salvation:  which is meant to protect the head;
  2. Loins girt with truth:  to brace the armor tight against the body and to support other weapons such as the sword;
  3. Breastplate of righteousness: in two parts - one to cover the breast and the other to protect the back to protect the vital organs of the body;
  4. Brazen boots : to serve as protection and cover of the feet and front of the leg and to acquire strenght of the gospel of peace;
  5. Shield of faith: to protect the body  from blows and cuts and in the warfare against evil thoughts, lusts, passions and temptation;
  6. Sword of the Spirit:  the Word to destroy the enemy and bring his surrender.  It should be quote in times of temptation which will cut in pieces the snares of evil.
Although praying is not part of the armor it is in addition to the armor and a very important part of fighting against spiritual powers of evil.  Every kind of praying:  public, church, private and family and continued incessant pleadings until the prayer is answered otherwise your prayer and Christian armor will be ineffectual.
