Be prepared. You're up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it's all over but the shouting you'll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You'll need them throughout your life. God's Word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other's spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.~Ephesians 6: 13–18 The Message
Elisabeth Elliot's Devotional has been in my sidebar for a few years now. I enjoy popping in to read there every few days. It was because of that link that a blogger let me know that in recent days Elisabeth and her husband Lars Gren have been in a car accident. Elisabeth is doing well; however, Mr. Gren has extensive injuries. Please join us, and so many others, in praying for this Godly couple who both have been so faithful to do the Lord's work.
