Police Week and Spiritual Warfare Begins...

Asking for special prayers for Rick and me (Badge of Hope Ministries), as well as many other Christian Law Enforcement ministries who will join us in D.C. this weekend/next week for National Police Week activities.

If you don't believe in spiritual warfare, then try doing something for God. I promise that you will face one or more of these things: discouragement, illness, aggravations, fears, confusion, disagreements, setbacks, depression, loss, frustration, mental exhaustion, and SO many more. AND...I can testify! 

So, with that said, I will remind us all of these very precious and timely words:

Ephesians 6:10-18 New International Version (NIV)

The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

Amen and amen! #battleready, #armorup
