Ephesians 6:16, “above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.”

Lift up praise and thanksgiving to God. Raise a rallying cry, “SHIELDS UP!” We call all believers in the nations and in our nation to advance and not retreat. Rise up with the shield of faith and quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. Through the power of the blood of Jesus, bind kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron (Psalm 149). Bind wickedness instigated from Satan, the father of lies, which have infiltrated hearts and minds in our world today, especially in the war for the identity of our children. The covenant blessing for believers begins in God’s promise to Abraham for blessing land and seed. Pray for a mighty deliverance for us and our children, and plead the blood of Jesus. Declare freedom and a total breakthrough for all who are oppressed and build a hedge of prayer around our children and our culture. Let the King of Glory come in!

May the Church increase and advance with boldness as we watch and pray until the Lord returns. Declare harvest glory over the nations. Pray, “Come Holy Spirit, we need You! Descend on us and our children with showers of Your promised blessing upon our land and upon our seed.”

Genesis 15:1, “After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, ‘Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.’”

Ephesians 6:10-18, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.”

Psalm 33:20, “Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield.”

Psalm 84:11, “For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.”

Psalm 91:4, 11, “He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.”
