Here in the United States, we have freedom of religion, but we need to be alert to protect this precious right. We won’t have our freedom forever if we don’t defend it.
However, in many parts of the world, Christians are persecuted for their faith every day. Proclaiming Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior can lead to death. Reading the Bible or worshipping the Lord bring danger.
Today, November 9, is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. According to Voice of the Martyrs,
Christians are encouraged to pray for continued boldness and courage for believers as they share the gospel and for hearts to be softened to the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Pray not only for persecuted Christians, but for the persecutors as well.
