All of them told me of a recent increase in stress. Whether it was stress at work or with their health or with their family, they all noticed a difference since their baptism. One said, “I felt like Satan was attacking me as soon as I came up out of the water.” I believe she is right. Satan hates when we make Jesus the Lord of our lives.

But we can help by remembering to pray for them. Pray for their protection against Satan’s schemes. Pray that they would not forget Jesus’ love and grace for them even in times of stress. Your prayers really will make a difference.
