“For Your name’s sake, lead me and guide me. Pull me out of the net.” Psalm 31:3-4
“Whenever the ark set out, … Moses said: ‘Rise up, O LORD! Let Your enemies be scattered, and let those who hate You flee before You.'” Numbers 10:35
Everyone is beset with his own particular enemies who endeavor to obstruct, to deceive, and to destroy him. But as the way is cleared for an earthly king when he travels for a comparatively low and limited purpose, much more shall valleys be exalted and hills be made low, crooked places be made straight, and rough places plain, when He, whose throne is heaven and whose footstool is the earth, comes forth for the salvation of His devoted people.
Grant, O Lord, that all my goings and restings may have respect to Your will. Be pleased to go continually before me and to make room, causing my spiritual enemies to flee before You. You are able to confound their craft and power. Enlighten my eyes, blessed Jesus, that I may see my enemies distinctly; and strengthen my faith in You, that I may not fear them. Be the Captain of my salvation. Lead me on praying and believing and fight all my battles for me. So shall I come off conqueror through Your love, and will give to You eternal praise.
Reader, is this your prayer? Is Jesus your hope? Is God’s word your rule? Is sin the object of your fear? Is holiness your ardent, habitual desire?

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
