Prowl Trilogy has been on my desk and it kept calling out to me all week.So I picked it up this morning and finished it tonight.I was reminded I have the power to overcome,I am loved and all need to do is call out to Jesus,that His name is power against the darkness.Prowl is like a modern day Frank Peretti book.I knew since I read This Present Darkness/Piercing the Darkness that there is a spiritual war going on around us but it took a backseat in my mind.Thanks for reminding me to stop sitting on the sidelines and get back in the war.
