Our world is in trouble, and you may feel helpless and hopeless. But you are not. As a follower of Jesus, here are 3 P’s you can do that will help:

1. Pray

Yeah, I know, that sounds elementary, and it is. BUT, are you doing it? Spiritual warfare is our first and foremost assignment. Spiritual powers and principalities fight to rule over every city, state, nation, and the world itself. The Bible is clear about this, and it is our prayers that make the difference! (See Daniel chapter 10).

2. Person of Peace

Be a person of peace. Practice peace. When you are interacting with someone who is aggressive, or combative, just stay calm. The Word says:

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up strife.” Proverbs 15:1

You will be able to stay calm and be a person of peace if you are consistent in prayer.

3. Persevere

There is an old adage that says

For wickedness to prevail, let righteous people do nothing.

Jesus calls you the salt and light of the world. Do not allow yourself to get so frustrated that you throw in the towel, thinking that your efforts are not making a difference. If the Church gives up, there is no hope for the world. The Church is the only thing holding back the darkness from covering the entire earth. You must endure! You cannot quit until you either go see Him, or He comes and gets us! Stay in the spiritual fight. Keep praying, practicing peace, and persevering, until He comes.

John
