1. A Prayer for Armor Against the Weapons of Satan for Our World Leaders
Slide 1 of 5
Abba, Father—I declare your goodness, protection and mercy over me today. I choose to stand on the promises of your word that no weapon formed against me will prosper. I am praying the same for every leader worldwide today.Help them to stand against the attacks of the enemy. In the name of Jesus, I demand the enemy to flee from their presence. Satan, you will no longer have any further control over them as they serve the Lord God Almighty whether they know it or not. I pray for a hedge of protection around each one of them and their families with Your warrior angels, Father God.
Lord Jesus, please grant each leader discernment to recognize and identify all spiritual attacks in their offices and positions of authority. Help each leader renew their minds and center their thoughts on You. With the full armor of the Lord Jesus Christ, extinguish the fiery arrows from the evil one.
Dress each leader with the belt of truth to defend against lies and deception and the breastplate of righteousness to safeguard their hearts. Armor each leader with the gospel of peace on their feet to be ready to take your light wherever they are serving. Help each one walk in the peace and freedom of your Spirit and not be overcome with fear or anxiety. I pray for a shield of faith in front of each leader to extinguish all the darts and threats hurled by the enemy.
I believe in your power to protect me and our leaders. Help each one to choose to trust in you. I pray each is covered with the helmet of salvation, which covers their minds and thoughts.
Finally, I lift up the sword of the Spirit, your very Word, the one offensive weapon given to us for battle, which has the power to demolish strongholds. Alive, active, and sharper than any double-edged sword and I wield it not only for my family but for every leader.
Lead them to Your word, lead with Your sovereignty, lead them into Your kingdom. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
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 sword of the Spirit which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions, with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
