God “is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3.20).
Our Lord Jesus Christ has the victory and “our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the
rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil
in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6.12).
In praying we personally need to “put on the whole armour” and to pray for the protection so we may
stand for God’s truth and that his Kingdom will come here on earth as it is in heaven.
