This is Christian Meditation for A Bigger Life – a time for you to relax, refocus, and re-narrate your life. I’m Dave Cover. I want to help you with Christian meditation where you can break through all the distractions and experience God’s presence through biblically guided imagination.

Ephesians 6:11, 14-17 says: “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. …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 the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (NIV).

One way to “put on the full armor of God” is through prayer. Here’s an example of how to “take your stand against the devil’s schemes” in your life and family through prayer. Today we will meditatively pray to put on “the breastplate of righteousness.”

Father in Heaven, your word tells me to submit to you and resist the devil, and he will flee from me (James 4:7), and so I want to do that now in this prayer. I submit my whole self to you, my whole life to you, (my family to you), all my cares to you, and my entire future to you. And I take my stand right now against all the devil’s schemes in my life (and family).

I put on your “breastplate of righteousness” — Jesus’s righteousness given to me as a breastplate to guard my heart against all the devil’s deceptive shame and false bondage to sin. I know that the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ has already cleansed me of all my shame (Rm 5:9). I put off right now my old self, which is being corrupted by deceitful desires, and I put on my new, true self in Christ, created to be like Jesus in true righteousness and holiness (Eph 4:22-24). I hunger and thirst for righteousness, only by which I will be truly satisfied (Mt 5:6). I affirm that I have been washed, I have been sanctified (made holy), I have been justified (made and declared to be righteous) in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of my God (1 Cor 6:11). All the ways that I am not enough have been filled with the fullness of Christ (Col 2:10). The Holy Spirit of God is in my body right now as your holy temple (1 Cor 6:19). And I affirm that this is who I truly am in Jesus Christ.

Amen.
