10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.

11 Put on the full armour of God,

so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes

No soldier goes into battle wearing just a helmet, or just taking a sword.  Paul compels us to put on the FULL armour – belt, breastplate, shoes, shield, helmet and sword, and then pray for each other.  Take some time today to read these verses in full and pray for your fellow believers, for strength, courage, wisdom and patience.
