Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.
Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace and take up the shield of faith to extinguish the flaming darts of the evil one.
In our constant fight against spiritual forces of evil, we are at a severe disadvantage if not for the armor of God.
We are currently in a spiritual battle against the devil, and he is an unrelenting enemy. He will do as much damage as possible, fighting to the very end.
