WORDS OF CHEER ON THE BATTLEFRONT: Soldier of Christ, is the battle going against you? Does defeat seem inevitable? Are you about to throw in the towel and give up the fight? Never, child of God, never! Raise up your hands to heaven and cry for help! Yes, prayer, Christian friend, prayer, prayer is our strength in the awesome fight against the principalities in high places. Yes, prayer, prayer of a contrite heart availeth much, so on our knees, our knees, we go. Soldier of Christ, is the enemy closing in on you? Are his fiery darts threatening you from all angles? Are his bullets whistling past you from all angles? Does it appear as if you’ll soon be vanquished? You look all around you—there seems no hope of escape; You are caught up in enemy territory. You look left and right; backward and forward – All seem to have deserted you! You cry, shout, wail, yell on top of your voice. Silence, deep silence, seems to be the only response! You are despairing, despairing, despairing! You begin to wonder where the Commander-in-Chief the Lord of Lords He in whom you have placed all your hope is to be found. Stand firm, stand firm ! Resign not, resign not!
