Prepping for the Pentagon

post date: September 22, 2008

This week’s travel schedule takes us in an entirely new direction. Tomorrow morning Marlene and I are flying to Washington, DC where I will be speaking at the Pentagon Prayer Breakfast on Wednesday morning. This is such an unusual invitation that it deserves a bit of explanation.

In May 2007 Moody Publishers released my book on spiritual warfare called Stealth Attack. The book is all about spiritual warfare in an age of terror. I doubt that I would have written it before 9/11. Stealth Attack contains many references to current events, drawing parallels between the tactics of the terrorists and the way Satan attacks believers. Soon after the book came out, the PR department at Moody Publishers sent a copy to the head chaplain at the Pentagon. He read it, liked it, and ordered more copies. All of that happened within a few weeks of the book’s publication. In February of this year, the chaplain contacted Moody to see if I would come to the Pentagon to speak to the weekly prayer breakfast.

And that’s why we’re heading to Washington tomorrow. I’m speaking on Wednesday morning at the Pentagon and then to another group on Thursday morning. And there may be one or two other events as well.

We count it great honor to speak to the men and women who serve our country through their work at the Pentagon. God willing, we plan to record the message and turn it into a podcast next week. Plus we’ll post pictures on the weblog as soon as we can.

I ask you to pray for the Lord’s blessing, for strength, good health, clarity, wisdom, and the filling of the Holy Spirit as we travel to Washington this week.
