A Sad Reminder for Prayer

I just received an prayer request email from our church. A family has some close friends who have just formerly announced to all that they have moved from Christianity to atheism. Wow...The husband even came from a very Christian home. It reminds me that we need to constantly be on guard. We are at war in a sense. And we need to pray for our children as they grow. Satan is alive and well on planet earth!

The following is from Romans 1:16, 20-24 (the whole chapter is good!)

"I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes...

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles."

I'd even say we weren't at war "in a sense", but truly we are daily attacked by Satan. We are all involved in a spiritual warfare and we need to remember to put on the armor of God. Thanks for this reminder!
