Stand up for those who have no voice in hostile and restricted nations across the globe by kneeling in prayer. It is difficult and chilling to fathom that 100 million Christians suffer around the world for simply taking Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Many face rejection, abandonment, and attack by their own families. Many are forced to leave their homes and villages. Many live in hiding and/or on the run. They meet secretly at night or underground. Numerous believers are imprisoned in labor camps, in isolation, even in metal shipping containers. They are blasphemed, tortured, killed—every day.
Prayer makes a difference! It strikes the winning blow. I’ve prayed for imprisoned pastors across the world, and then rejoiced when they are freed. I’ve prayed for God to reveal Himself through dreams & visions, TV, radio and internet broadcasts, and He is doing this all across the Middle East, Asia and Africa. It is exciting and joyful. It is easy for you to be a part of that as well.
Take a few moments to pray for our suffering fellow believers. Learn more at www.persecution.com and/or www.OpenDoorsUSA.org. You’ll read true stories, find recent prayer needs and can sign-up for free stuff like news magazines, weekly & monthly prayer guides, even books. Let this be just the beginning of a commitment to pray for those who share our same faith, but are under much harsher circumstances.
“Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.” Heb. 13:3
