Ephesians 6:11-18

11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

Discuss how and where to pray.[edit | edit source]

Learn who we should pray for and write a prayer of your own. Read this prayer in the Adventurer Club, Sabbath School Class, or during church service.[edit | edit source]

Discuss why you pray.[edit | edit source]

We pray because we want to have a relationship with God. Sometimes we pray to praise God, to say I’m sorry, please forgive me; to tell God thank you; and to pray for others and yourself.

Take a prayer walk with the Adventurers or your family. Talk about the way you felt during the walk.[edit | edit source]
