Spiritual Warfare: 'Prayer Plus Touch Plus Fasting Is Effective'

God's Power for Our Battles — Friday, November 19, 2021

One day as these men were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, "Appoint Barnabas and Saul for the special work to which I have called them." So after more fasting and prayer, the men laid their hands on them and sent them on their way.
— Acts 13:2-3 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, thank You for ALL the weapons You have provided for us to fight the daily spiritual battles we must fight. Help me to realize that it’s just POWER, but it’s the proper application of power in the right manner that can often make the difference. Help me to follow these biblical examples as I try to make a difference in the world around me each day. Help me to be innovative and creative as I apply Your principles. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
