15 Spiritual Warfare Scriptures to Read, Pray, and Memorize
  • Prayer + God's Word = Power

    Praying God’s words back to Him, is a powerful weapon against the forces of evil. It is Truth going out. It reminds us that God knows our way and understands what we face today. It builds our faith and our trust in God. It guards our hearts and focuses our minds back on Him. It wins the battle. 15 Spiritual Warfare Scriptures to Read, Pray, and Memorize:

  • 3. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

    "For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.

  • 6. Ephesians 6:11-17

    "Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."  -Eph 6:11-17
