This week we will celebrate Independence Day. Our freedom, both physical and spiritual has been bought at a huge price. Yet this freedom continues to be eroding away, especially with the Supreme Court’s ruling this past week on marriage. This is no time to let up in our praying. The weapons God has given us are not of this world. They have divine power to demolish strongholds (2 Corinthians 10:3-5). Where sin increases, grace abounds even more (Romans 5:20). Keep on praying, even though you may be on holiday, or away on vacation. Press into God. We believe we are on the verge of some huge breakthroughs in Athens. Please stay at your prayer post and not give up any ground. After all, our enemy doesn’t take a holiday!!!
