You might well say “what is the point as I can’t do anything” but at least you then know how to pray intelligently – but it does get overwhelming and our prayers can become groans but God understands and hears our groans. There are times when we have to leave the fighting to Gabriel and Michael.
• Small (but eternal) picture: our kids are increasingly exposed to temptations seemingly approved by community and increasingly mandated by bad government – “Safe Schools” and “Respectful Relationships” now rebadged yet again as “Inclusive Education”; increasing control over what we teach in our homes – even “around the kitchen table” which is where the previous Chair of the AHRC wanted to get – and schools.
