Today is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. All over the world people are praying for Christians who are suffering for their faith in Jesus Christ. In honor of this day, I am re-posting this which was originally posted on September 21, 2012. Won’t you pray with us?
Did you know that 70% of the world’s population lives in countries with heavy restrictions on religion? Did you know that more than one hundred million Christians worldwide are currently suffering interrogations, arrest, and even death for their faith in Jesus Christ? All of this happens on a daily basis around the world while Christians in the West enjoy relative peace, security, and freedom.
First Corinthians Chapter 12 compares the church, the body of Christ, to a physical body with each member having a different function. Verse 26 says that if one member suffers, then all the members suffer with it. Open Doors is a ministry dedicated to serving persecuted Christians worldwide and they would like to invite you to share the wonderful privilege of standing in solidarity with our brothers and sisters who share our faith but not our freedom.
Please visit onewiththem.com and order a barbwire wristband today. Then be prepared to share with others who ask why you are wearing barbwire.
On behalf of suffering saints all over the world, THANK YOU.
