Many of you remember the struggles of the Viet Nam War. During that war, our troops would often set up “fire bases”. These were bases where troops & artillery would be placed. They were arranged in such a way that if one fire base was attacked, usually one or two other bases could provide covering fire.
My friends, that is one of the most important ways we pray. We give covering fire for one another as we battle and struggle. We intercede for one another.
From Gene Gregory’s Sermon; Soldiers Fighting for Freedom
