It’s interesting… the things that happen when we try to do something for God. You start to get doubts, friendships go haywire, stuff in the family happens “all of a sudden…” but it all seems connected.
Yes, my friends, the spiritual warfare has manifested itself…
…and THAT is why I need intercessors. If you are interested in joining a prayer team, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call my cell (if you have it… not posting it here). I need people that I can just call and say, “Hey… the swords are really clashing right now… can you bring down some prayer support?”
Paul said in Ephesians that “…we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].” I can tell you that I have underestimated them as of late… but I don’t plan to any more.
God… please help me to take up the WHOLE armor of God every day, so that I can stand… having done all to stand (Ephesians 6:13).
Please pray for Mike, Michelle, Lindsay, Alex, Josh, and me… “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel…” (Ephesians 6:18-19)
There’s many more prayers in the Word that are applicable to missionaries. If the LORD lays it on your heart, please find one and make it your special prayer for one of us… or all of us.
Thanks a lot and God bless!
