Week of September 18-20: Read Ephesians 6:10-20
The Christian and the church are in a spiritual battle. We need the resources of God listed in this passage to be able to withstand the enemy and carry out the commission Christ gave us to preach the gospel in the world. Each day, pray for yourself, someone else, and Grace Community Church. This week, think of the temptations our congregation faces and pray that we will stay focused on the spiritual realities outlined in this passage.
