“I will never quit…If knocked down, I will get back up, every time. I will draw on every remaining ounce of strength to protect my teammates…I am never out of the fight.” (Philosophy of the U.S. Navy SEALs)
I am never out of the fight.
Although the quote relates specifically to the US Navy SEALs, it also could describe senior citizens, even a seventy-year old guy like me.
Yes, our knees may be creaky, our backs may be temperamental, our energy may be equal to that of a twenty-year old cat on a rainy day, and so forth and so on. And it’s possible some of us may end up using canes, crutches, walkers, wheelchairs, or even lie totally paralyzed on beds. But yet, as long as we can open our mouths or think thoughts, we can pray. And because of that —
We are never out of the fight.
I believe with all my heart that the Lord is searching for groups of senior citizens who believe they are never out of the fight until their hearts stop beating and who are willing to turn their backs on their pasts and devote themselves to prayer.

My prayer today:
Lord, pour out Your Spirit on senior citizens so that we set our hope in You and continue in supplications and prayers night and day for America. (Based on 1 Timothy 5:5)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
Join with me on Thursdays to fast and pray for America.
