New International Version (NIV)
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,but against the rulers, against the authorities,against the powersof this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Each day we must go into battle, and we must be covered in prayer. We must stand firm against Satan’s attacks and not let him bring us down or interfere with the work that God wants us to do. Raise your swords and enter the battlefield—each day!!!
