Elizabeth’s Tips for “Heroes”

Elizabeth’s Tips for “Heroes”

Heroes need armor to protect them during battle.

Here are the tools that Elizabeth Theis and her church prayer warriors use to ward off the enemy’s attack while they minister to those in need:

  •  You will deal with people who have layers of hurt, pain and sometimes mental illness. Rely every moment on the Holy Spirit’s direction.
  • Stand strong on God’s Word. Do not compromise, but stand in love. Be honest about what needs you are able to meet, but speak in love.
  • Fast and pray. As you make a difference in people’s lives, Satan will attack you and your family. Encourage each other and pray to protect each other.
  • Stay on course. Back off when God says it’s time.
  • Maintain your personal quiet time with God.
  • Have a good body of people to fellowship with.
  • Complain less; praise God more.
