Spiritual Warfare: 'Idolatry Should Trouble Us Toward Outreach'

God's Power for Our Battles — Wednesday, March 31, 2021

While Paul was waiting for Silas and Timothy in Athens, he was troubled because he saw that the city was full of idols. In the synagogue, he talked with the Jews and the Greeks who worshiped God. He also talked every day with people in the marketplace.
— Acts 17:16-17 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, every day and in many ways, I, too, see idolatry around me in this land. People put money and power and fame and position far above godliness and faithfulness to You. I have even done the same. Forgive me. Forgive the people of this land. And please bring us back to You. Remind us of Your greatness and Your power and Your love for us. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
