This Week's Scripture


"Nor shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be doomed to destruction like it." Deuteronomy 7:26

This Week's Prayer!


We invite Your Holy Spirit to dwell in these rooms, which belongs to Henry, Anthony, Zoƫ, Asa, Rose, Grace, and Elijah, and in Heidi, Angel, and Angela's room. You are Lord over heaven and earth, and we proclaim that You are Lord over their rooms as well. Flood it with Your light and life. We pray that You, Lord, will make their rooms a holy place, sanctified for Your glory. And may You also dwell in our room and in each one of our extended family and friend's rooms.

Battle!

Our family is going through a hard battle right now. No, I don't mean amongst each other. We are going through a spiritual battle. I don't know if you believe in spiritual battles or not but I am here to say they are very real. This past week I have talked to people that don't believe spiritual battles exist and then I have been connected to those this past week that do believe they exist. I am here to say spiritual battles are very real! There is an enemy that wants to kill, steal, and destroy you, your family, your children, your dreams, your relationship with God (I could go on and on).

In Ephesians 6:12 says, "For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms."

This is the spiritual battle my family is going through. However, the scripture before this one says,
"Put on all of God's armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies and tricks of the Devil."
This is what my family is doing..... putting on the whole armour of God! Warring for our family!

Years ago I came across an amazing prayer book called Prayers that avail much. There is one prayer in particular that me and Tommy have prayed this week. If you or your family or a friend are under spiritual attack feel free to click on this prayer to stop what the enemy is trying to do!

Read 2 Chronicles 16:9. It's a personal favorite of mine. When Asa trusted in the Lord, there was victory. When he trusted in his own wisdom or the help of others, he felt defeat. The Lord is going to show Himself strong on your behalf because your hearts are loyal to Him!

I too have been fighting a "Spiritual Battle" for some time now, and I read the following words of encouragement everyday and pray because God knows and answers all our prayers:

The irony of spiritual peace is that it often cannot be attained without spiritual warfare. Despite this reality, we can have great courage in battle, for God has provided us with the best of spiritual armor: salvation, righteousness, truth, the good news of peace, faith, and his Word. With these, we may conquer doubt, fear, and despair, and all the great enemies of our soul. You will be in my prayers as you fight this battle.
