Read: Ephesians 6:10-18 and Psalm 119:121-128
St. Paul writes several times that we are to stand strong against the devil. This is the favorite “armor of God” passage. Each part of the armor (well known to those under Roman rule) protects us from the enemy’s weapons.
Standing up for what is right can be difficult sometimes. However, when we do stand up and put fear aside in order to follow God, we find success. Just as we read yesterday about the legend surrounding St. James’ death, sometimes our bravery and faithfulness causes even our enemies to become believers.
How does this speak to you? Do you stand strong? Take some time to think about this. Then, write your own prayer.
