"You then... be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus... No one serving as a soldier [entangles himself] in civilian affairs - he wants to please his commanding officer... Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight."
2 Timothy 2:1, 4, 6

We all fail. The heart breaks with the though: If only I had spent more time with God... I would have had more power... 

So let us call upon the God of fire to burn our bonds of entanglements and set us free to fight the fight, to make us strong to stand, peaceful and strong, in heavenly places with Christ Jesus.

My Father, You are the One who rescues us all. Rescue the hearts of our NEEMA girls today. Open their eyes, Father, and give them godly understanding... and let Your powerful grace show them the way.
