Battle against Evil.

Finally, draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power.

Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil.
For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens.

Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground.

So stand fast with your loins girded in truth, clothed with righteousness as a breastplate,

and your feet shod in readiness for the gospel of peace.

In all circumstances, hold faith as a shield, to quench all [the] flaming arrows of the evil one.

And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Constant Prayer.

With all prayer and supplication, pray at every opportunity in the Spirit. To that end, be watchful with all perseverance and supplication for all the holy ones

and also for me, that speech may be given me to open my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel

for which I am an ambassador in chains, so that I may have the courage to speak as I must.

A Final Message.

So that you also may have news of me and of what I am doing, Tychicus, my beloved brother and trustworthy minister in the Lord, will tell you everything.

I am sending him to you for this very purpose, so that you may know about us and that he may encourage your hearts.

Peace be to the brothers, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

bed time prayer

Carson's prayer tonight:

Dear God, thank you for loving us.  Thank you for the sun and warm pool.
Lord thank you for America.  Thank you for my mom in Guatemala who gave me up because she could not feed me.  Thank you for my mommy who adopted me and gives me a lot of love.  I love you and oh thank you my soft bed.  Good night Jesus.

1 Peter 3:13-15

Usually no one will hurt you for wanting to do good. But even if they should, you're to be envied, for God will reward you for it. Quietly trust yourself to Christ your Lord and if anybody asks why you believe as you do, be ready to tell him, and do it in a gentle and respectful way."
