See to it…

Colossians 2:8 “See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world…”

Believers in Gujarat, like Believers everywhere, are constantly beset by people who belittle their beliefs, by the spirits of this world that attempt to draw them away from Jesus. But Believers here often have to battle families, also, families who follow other religions and traditions that are generations strong and deeply opposed to Christianity. Here they are also surrounded by images and idols of the gods of this world; by the sights, sounds and smells of worship of false gods.
Pray for Believers. Pray that they will not be taken captive by philosophies and empty deceits. Pray that they will not be pulled away by the traditions that surround them. Pray that not only will they stand firm for Jesus but that they will also stand as a beacon in the spiritual darkness surrounding them.
