Identity
Author: Kylie Welch

Chapter 12
Our Armour

 asked my Lord in prayer to help me see today,
To set me free from confusion, I asked him as I prayed.
Because I trust in him you see, in his wisdom and his grace,
I know that with His helping hand, all things I can face.
Do you know what He said, when He answered my prayer?
Listen very closely, let your spiritual ears hear.
He told me about a helmet, in the world of spiritual fight,
He told me that it means salvation, and to put it on tight.
He showed me my feet, and that they are to walk in peace,
So I put on my spiritual shoes and to my great relief.
I realised that if I wear them, and take his peace with me,
No harm will befall me, because with me I know He'll be.
He showed me a breastplate, which I didn't understand,
But when I thought of his righteousness, I knew I'd take a stand.
He showed me a belt which stood for God's truth,
He said to take it with me, I'd need it to get through.
And around me was a shield, He said that it was my faith,
And if I always have it with me, Huge Mountains I can face.
He said that I could move them, if I only just believed,
So I think I will keep it, wrapped tightly around me!
And last of all my friend, this one is important,
He showed me a glowing bible, resting in my hand,
He said that if I read it, I'll know to take a stand,
Against the wiles of the devil and all of his sneaky ways,
And that God will be with me, until the end of my days!
It is the mightiest of all swords, and can break all curses!
Never let it leave your heart, memorise it's verses.
So this is His answer, to the prayer of my heart,
I think I'll read my bible, I think that it's a start.
But now I know the weapons that we need to fight this fight.
I think I'll keep these weapons on, even through the night!
