Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, againstspiritual 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. 14 Stand therefore,having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate ofrighteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith withwhich you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—

ACTS 12 1 Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. 2 Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3 And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter also. Now it was during the Days of Unleavened Bread. 4 So when he had arrested him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four squads of soldiers to keep him, intending to bring him before the people after Passover.5 Peter was therefore kept in prison, but constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church. 6 And when Herod was about to bring him out, that night Peter was sleeping, bound with two chains between two soldiers; and the guards before the door were keeping the prison. 7 Now behold, an angel of the Lord stood by him, and a light shone in the prison; and he struck Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, ―Arise quickly!‖ And his chains fell off his hands.

Daniel 10 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a message was revealed to Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar. The message was true, but the appointed time was long; and he understood the message, and had understanding of the vision. 2 In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three full weeks. 3 I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled. 4 Now on the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, that is, the Tigris, 5 I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, a certain man clothed in linen, whose waist was girded with gold of Uphaz! 6 His body was like beryl, his face like the appearance of lightning, his eyes like torches of fire, his arms and feet like burnished bronze in color, and the sound of his words like the voice of a multitude. 7 And I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, for the men who were with me did not see the vision; but a great terror fell upon them, so that they fled to hide themselves. 8 Therefore I was left alone when I saw this great vision, and no strength remained in me; for my vigor was turned to frailty in me, and I retained no strength. 9 Yet I heard the sound of his words; and while I heard the sound of his words I was in a deep sleep on my face, with my face to the ground.

2 Kings 6 8 Now the king of Aram was at war with Israel. After conferring with his officers, he said, ―I will set up my camp in such and such a place.‖9 The man of God sent word to the king of Israel: ―Beware of passing that place, because the Arameans are going down there.‖ 10 So the king of Israel checked on the place indicated by the man of God. Time and again Elisha warned the king, so that he was on his guard in such places. 11 This enraged the king of Aram. He summoned his officers and demanded of them, ―Tell me! Which of us is on the side of the king of Israel?‖12 ―None of us, my lord the king,‖ said one of his officers, ―but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.‖13 ―Go, find out where he is,‖ the king ordered, ―so I can send men and capture him.‖ The report came back: ―He is in Dothan.‖ 14 Then he sent horses and chariots and a strong force there. They went by night and surrounded the city.15 When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. ―Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?‖ the servant asked.16 ―Don‘t be afraid,‖ the prophet answered. ―Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.‖17 And Elisha prayed, ―Open his eyes, LORD, so that he may see.‖ Then the LORD opened the servant‘s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
