May we raise up mighty warriors for Christ!

My prayer for my boys is that they will be trained up to be mighty warriors of Christ. Taking the gospel to the ends of the earth. I am already seeing the fruit of this prayer. Our son Ezekiel began praying for the "jungle people" over 6 months ago. And although we have no idea who these people are or where in the world they live, he prays for them without fail every night. A few weeks ago he asked if we could visit the "jungle people" to tell them about Jesus and sing Jesus songs to them. One day, I believe that the Lord will send Ezekiel out to truly share the good news of Jesus face to face with the "jungle people."

"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— 19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. " Ephesians 6
