A COMPANION TO THE "A BETTER STORY" MESSAGE SERIES

DAY FOURTEEN

PRAY AND PUT ON, PART 2

“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes… Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.” (Ephesians 6:11, 14–18 NIV)
The more we feel the call to be one of those workers and the more opportunities God puts in our lives to share the gospel, the more ready we need to be.

PRAYER

Lord, we know that there are unseen forces working against the advancement of your kingdom. As your people, we need your guidance and protection. May we put on the things you’ve lovingly and faithfully given to us, and may we stand firm. Help us to be ready with the gospel. This week as I start to reach out to some people that I know, I pray that you will work through those efforts to soften their hearts and pique interest in knowing you.
