This week we stand firm in God’s Word. We hold on to prayer and fasting to resist the evil one and flee from every temptation. @coptorthodox #coptorthodox #copticorthodox #coptic #orthodox #greatlent2019

Where can we hide? We are hemmed in. We are cornered. We fight against the world, against the Devil and then even ourselves! Where can we find rest?

Stand on His Word. Hold to your prayers. Cling to the tradition of letting go of worldly desires through fasting. Each step we take toward God will be a step closer to peace. To rest. There is nothing in this world that will provide us respite. Every attempt will come up empty.

Hold to Him. Hold to His commandments. Hold to the traditions of His Church.

You will prevail. In Him you can do all things.
