What is on your heart? Scripture is pretty clear that where our treasure is, we will also find our heart. Where we spend our money and our resources is directly connected to what means the most to us.

But what about things that money can’t buy? What about people? What about intangible things that require your attention? What about an important cause that simply cannot and will not be fixed without someone fighting for it?

We live in a world that sometimes seems to be falling apart. If it seems that way, that might be because it is. Sin is an ugly thing and sin never builds up. It never produces life and never makes things better.

The more sin seems to plague our world, the more defenseless we sometimes feel. However, as Scripture says,

“…our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against a dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12

It’s pretty undeniable that we don’t have enough money or resources to fix our broken world. Issues that tear families and communities and nations apart seem overwhelming and hopeless. But don’t doubt the most important and powerful weapon of all.

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

So when conflict arises, fight back with prayer. When your marriage is struggling, fight for it in prayer. When your children are going through a difficult season, fight for them in prayer. When everything around you seems to be falling apart and there seems to be no solution, even in the darkest time, let us rejoice in the Lord and pray without ceasing.
