Spiritual Warfare: 'Satan Looks for Sheep All Alone'

God's Power for Our Battles — Tuesday, November 15, 2022

Christ carried our sins in his body on the cross so we would stop living for sin and start living for what is right. And you are healed because of his wounds. You were like sheep that wandered away, but now you have come back to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
— 1 Peter 2:24-25 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, forgive me for being so discouraged with religion that I stopped going to church. Remind me that the church is the bride of Christ and that You died for it. Help me to see church as a hospital for those in need of You rather than a social club for a select few. Deliver me from Satan—who is looking for folks who don’t have the collective support of other imperfect believers. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
