Praying for America Day 8

'Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength. Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the tactics of the Devil. For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens. This is why you must take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having prepared everything, to take your stand. Stand, therefore, with truth like a belt around your waist, righteousness like armor on your chest, and your feet sandaled with readiness for the gospel of peace. In every situation take the shield of faith, and with it you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is God's Word. Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert in this with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.'
Ephesians 6: 10 - 18

Did you notice that there is NO defensive armor for the back described in this passage? If a soldier without back armor doesn't keep his face to the enemy, he will be killed. Coincidence? I think not.

Lord, I thank You for the spiritual armory You give to Your children. I thank You that You're there, all the time, fighting beside us. Let us never lose sight of the fact that we are in a spiritual war. Please give us the courage, faith, determination and discernment to face each new battle. Help us to live each day in the confidence of the victory Your Son provided for us. Don't let us retreat or falter, but help us to always press on, remembering that 'if God is for us, who can stand against us?'
