Staying with the Stuff
As you read this quote, I hope it inspires you to not only pray for Scott and Billy as they travel, but also for their wives, Meg and Joanna, and their children, Tim, Ben, Elsie, Lucy, Sophie and Chloe.
"But why was this frustration of sickness allowed? One cannot always discern the reason for these things, but two are plain to us: (1) We learned that when one member of the party was thrusting out into Satan's territory, it was also necessary to put a prayer guard over those who stayed at home. We were all praying for John and his party as they pressed into the demon-plagues territory of Goomoo. Those prayers cleared the party's way (they were much blessed there) so Satan, in furious spite, struck at the unprotected home base. Both those who go down to battle and those who stay by the stuff need prayer-coverage. We have never forgotten this lesson." -Isobel Kuhn, In the Arena
Pray for these precious women and children as their men thrust out into Satan's territory. If you will stand guard over these who stay home- please leave a comment!
