Take time today to pray for the persecuted church. Let us remember our brothers and sisters who are suffering for the sake of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Pray for grace, strength, encouragement, protection, and new converts. Pray for the mission work being done to support the church in areas where the persecution is great. "I know your tribulation and your poverty...Do not fear what you are about to suffer...Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life." Rev2:9-10Come, Lord Jesus!
