Faith's mother, Myah, has had to close down her email and her FaceBook account because trolls from reddit.com have attacked her viciously.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Ephesians 6:12 NAS
More on the issue of exactly who the enemy is, here.
Join me in prayer:
Heavenly Father, we stand in awe that so many wonders pour forth from your hand that we take them for granted. That two haploid cells should join and result in a new human being, made in your image, to love and to be loved, is a marvel too great to comprehend. Yet it is commonplace and everyday.
We confess that we fail to see the marvels of your handiwork as we ought. We lose sight of the wonders that surround us daily. We lose sight of the loving touch of your hand in everything around us.
Lord, we thank you for Myah and Faith. We thank you for the love you have made manifest in them. We thank you that we have learned of them, that we have been blessed by them. We thank you for the joy and peace and love that shines forth from them into our lives.
We ask protection for Myah and Faith from the attacks of the Father of Lies. We ask that you make your presence known to Myah in a very real way, that she will so bask in the radiance of your love that the attacks of the evil one can not reach her heart. We ask that you allow her to feel only the love and gratitude of those of us you have blessed with open eyes to see the wonder and joy you make manifest in them.
We ask that you re-open the doors of communication between us and Myah, that we may share fellowship with her, uplift her, and be uplifted by her.
We ask that you show us how to pray for those who are walking in such darkness that they can not see your hand at work in Myah and Faith. We ask that you give each of them an awakening, as you awakened each of us. We ask that the blessing you have given us -- of the ability to see your love and joy and blessing in Myah and Faith and in our own lives -- be bestowed upon them as well. Just as each of us has had that moment when we grasped, in our own feeble way, the reality of you and your love and the love of your Son, we beg of you that each person who has attacked or criticized Myah will have that moment as well, that they will be open to you, that they will become your instruments of peace and love and joy.
We ask, Father God, that the spirits that are at work in their lives be bound and frustrated, unable to use them to spread lies and hatred. We ask that your blessed Son cast out those spirits, in his holy Name, and send them to a place where they have no power to hurt or torment Myah, Faith, or anybody else.
We ask that the trolls repent, confess, and begin to walk in the light of your perfect love.
In the precious name of Jesus we pray, amen.
