Summary: As we finish up our series on spiritual warfare, we encounter A powerful call to prayer. While not identified with a specific piece of armor, prayer proves to be an effective weapon in our spiritual battle. Paul even devotes more time to prayer than any of the other pieces of armor which demonstrates the importance of prayer for success against the enemy we face.

As we continue looking at the pieces of spiritual armor that God has provided for us in our spiritual battle against the forces of evil, we will be taking a look at the helmet of salvation. The helmet protects from deadly strikes to the head. Paul calls us to take up the helmet of salvation and place it on our heads to protect us presently with the reality of who we are in Christ. We are delivered from the power of Satan and have the power of Christ available to us. Are we daily wearing the protection salvation brings?

As we delve back into spiritual warfare this week, we encounter the second piece of armor, the breastplate of righteousness. The breastplate serves to protect vital parts of the body from weaponry meant to destroy us. Spiritually, this protection comes in the form of righteousness. Our righteous protection is Christ's righteousness that enables us to make right choices and live lives pleasing to him.
