Last night I was at the local mormon church listening to a false prophet, one of the mormon “General Authorities”. As I looked around at all of the eager faces, listening raptly to a man proclaiming a false gospel and a false Christ I was heartbroken and oppressed. I didn’t find it uplifting, I found it horrifying.
An hour into the “Fireside”, I was feeling very burdened and discouraged when my blackberry buzzed. At that time of night, it was unlikely to be a work related email so I slipped it out of my pocket and read an email from my wife. It simply said:
I'm covered and Praying.
I love You, Eva
What a comfort and joy to know that in the midst of a sea of lost people being deceived, my wife was at home, thinking about me, chastely covering her head and in prayer. What a great comfort for a husband to have a wife who prays for him! I still was heartbroken for those around me but having prayer support at home strengthened me.
