November 4th is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. I know as well as anyone that it is easy to get caught up in our own lives, what is going on directly around us, and in our own country. However, let us remember that there are many, many Christians around the world suffering not just from the natural disasters and economic situations that befall us all, but for their faith and devotion to Jesus Christ.
Consider the following short video from Gospel for Asia, and ask God how you might have you pray and get involved in aiding the persecuted church throughout the world. Even as suburban moms with little kids around our feet all day, Jesus has allowed us the privilege of fighting for others through prayer….a lesson I’m still learning and trying to improve upon.
