  22. READ EPHESIANS 6:13-18 AND WRITE DOWN THE DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE ARMOR OF GOD.IN YOUR PRAYERS EACH MORNING, PUT ON THE ARMOR OF GOD. SAY TO GOD, FOR INSTANCE, “FATHER, IN JESUS NAME I PUT ON THE HELMET OF SALVATION.” PUT ON ALL THE ARMOR OF GOD IN YOUR PRAYERS EACH MORNING AND THIS WILL HELP YOU TO STAND AGAINST THE TRAPS OF THE ENEMY. NOTICE ALSO THAT THE HELMET OF SALVATION COVERS YOUR HEAD AND YOUR MIND. THE MIND IS A MAJOR BATTLEGROUND WHERE THE ENEMY TRIES TO LIE TO YOU AND DECEIVE YOU. ALSO, THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IS A PIECE OF ARMOR THAT FITS OVER YOUR CHEST AND PROTECTS YOUR HEART. THE ENEMY OFTEN TRIES TO LEAD YOUR HEART INTO SIN AND RUIN YOUR RIGHT RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. READ MATTHEW 4:1-11 TO SEE HOW JESUS USES THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT OR THE WORD OF GOD TO DEFEAT SATAN.
  23. THE LORD’S PRAYER IS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW GOD WANTS US TO PRAY. IN THAT PRAYER YOU WILL SEE A PATTERN. THERE IS FIRST ADORATION, PRAISE & WORSHIP AND THEN SEEKING GOD’S WILL, ASKING FOR PERSONAL NEEDS, ASKING FOR FORGIVENESS, FORGIVING OF OTHERS, ASKING FOR GUIDANCE, PROTECTION, AND STRENGTH, AND ENDING WITH ADORATION, PRAISE & WORSHIP. (MATTHEW 6:9-13)YOU CAN FOLLOW THIS SAME PATTERN, BUT PRAY IN YOUR OWN WORDS AND WITH YOUR OWN PRAISE AND YOUR OWN PERSONAL REQUEST. ANOTHER PATTERN YOU CAN FOLLOW IS THIS: THIS IS EASY TO REMEMBER BECAUSE IT SPELLS ACTS WITH AN EXTRA S.
    • A. ADORATION (TO ADORE GOD AND PRAISE AND WORSHIP HIM)
    • C. CONFESS (TELL HIM YOUR SINS AND ASK FOR HIS FORGIVENESS)
    • T. THANKSGIVING (THANK HIM FOR HIS LOVE AND FOR WHAT HE HAS GIVEN YOU)
    • S. SUPPLICATION (ASKING HIM FOR THINGS YOU NEED AND THAT OTHERS NEED)
    • S. SCRIPTURE (SPEND TIME READING THE BIBLE)
  24. READ JOHN 14:23. REMEMBER THAT PRAYER IS A TIME OF FIGHTING THE ENEMY, FOR ASKING FOR WHAT YOU NEED, BUT ESPECIALLY FOR TALKING WITH YOUR FATHER AND GETTING TO KNOW HIM BETTER.
