Spiritual Warfare: 'Our Place of Encouragement'

God's Power for Our Battles — Saturday, May 1, 2021

We must also consider how to encourage each other to show love and to do good things. We should not stop gathering together with other believers, as some of you are doing. Instead, we must continue to encourage each other even more as we see the day of the Lord coming.
— Hebrews 10:24-25 GWT

Today's Prayer

Lord, forgive me for being so lax in my church attendance. Please help me to forget if I've been mistreated there in years past, and help me instead to see it as a place of encouragement — both to get encouragement and also to give encouragement. Please help me make the church a place to show love and spur others on to do good works. And help me to realize how vital it is to my Christian walk. Keep me from using petty excuses to justify not going. Help me to be faithful. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
