Ephesians 6: 13-18
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 firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with prayer and supplication.
Lord God, we pray for your protection for Father Shaw and Mother Julie and their students in Belize and their future students in Tanganyika and throughout the world. We also pray for steadfastness that they daily take up the whole armor of God: the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of readiness given by the gospel of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit. And we, their intercessors, pledge to pray at all times in the Spirit with prayer and supplication. Amen.
