Battle 

Over the next few weeks friends and family will be facing difficult days. I will be praying for them and their situations.  

I know others may be at their side, making meals, and keeping them company, but I cannot– so I will pray.  

For comfort.

For peace.

For healing.

For them to trust God even when they don’t understand what is going on and especially when they don’t like what is going on in their lives.

These are battles I cannot fight physically on their behalf– but I can fight for them spiritually and I will- on my knees.

A saint who advances on his knees never retreats. ~Jim Elliot

Who are you battling for today?
