I find it hard to wrap my head around the fact that there are people going to church today who may be killed for their faith in Jesus Christ. But, that apparently is the case. Somebody will be persecuted in someway, someplace in the world for their faith.
Radio Bible Class in Grand Rapids says in their Our Daily Bread that today's the day--Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church--to lift them up in our conversations with God. Wherever there's the potential for that kind of persecution to happen, I promise that I will pray for these Christians and I will continue to do so.
