Jesus - Armor

Jesus - Armor

"Put on the full armor of God." Eph. 6:11

Father,

When
The "world" pursues and
The "flesh" chases,
Pounding and pounding,
My soul is sealed with Jesus' Spirit --
An Armor impenetrable.

When
Devil-craft and Devil-trade,
Hawk and peddle,
Jesus-Faith stands fast in my soul --
An Armor impenetrable.

When
Darkness crawls
To sink into my heart,
Fathoms deep into the murky,
Jesus, my  Breastplate, steels --
An Armor impenetrable.

Father,

Jesus?

My Sandals to put on for the wrestling,
My Shield to shelter from Evil's hurling,
My  Sword to guard from heart stealing.

Truly,
Jesus is the soul's Armor.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
