As we come to the end of our Armor of God studies, we realize two important points. In order to be effective as Christians wearing the Armor of God, we must be strong in the Lord Eph 6:10 and develop a prayer life before the Lord. Eph 6:18.
God’s children can turn to their Father in prayer.

It is possible to approach God in prayer because of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice

Prayer reflects a longing for God
Ps 42:1-2; Jer 29:12-13 Also see: Ps 130:5-6; 145:18-19; Pr 8:17; Isa 26:9; 33:2; La 3:25
Lord Jesus, I believe you are the son of God, and you died for my sins and rose again from the dead, I trust you for cleansing and forgiveness, and you have received me as a Child of God. If there is any resentment or unforgiveness for anyone, I lay it at your feet and ask you to forgive me. I ask your forgiveness for being involved in other religions, witchcraft, or the occult seeking other gods. I acknowledge this as sin and loose myself right now in Jesus name. And now, Lord Jesus, I come to and yield my body, mind, and spirit to you. I give you my all. Come into my heart and be my personal Saviour. I surrender my tongue to you to be an instrument of righteousness to worship you in a new language. By faith, I receive it now, Lord in Jesus name. Amen.
