Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 10/16/16

This week’s scripture is from Romans:

Warfare Prayer“We know that the whole creation has been groaning…” (Rom. 8:22 NRSV)

It is clearly seen in these days that the world, that nations, are locked in a titanic struggle between good and evil. It appears that the sons of light and the sons of darkness are taking their places upon the stage of the world. The children of God are under assault spiritually and physically, and in every other way, as they struggle to not be overcome by the rising tide of evil. Those who belong to evil have become bold in their boasting and blasphemies.

Yet the Lord is not unaware; He sees all that is taking place and He laughs as the nations roar and evil has its day, for His day is coming when none will be able to stand against His mighty hand and His word will cut the enemy down like grass before His righteous blade. Let us take up the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, and wield it against the dark forces that oppose us and our Lord. Let us call upon Him and pray; pray in His word; pray in power; pray in the Spirit; pray in His holy name.

May the Lord embolden you to pray, and keep praying.
