So any person who knows what is right to do but does not do it, to him it is sin. (James 4:17 AMP)
This Sunday is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. A day of united prayer for Christians around the world who suffer because they are Christian. Many Christians around the world whose belief in, and worship of, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob suffer religious persecution while much of the world is silent.
Increasingly, Christians are being penalized for practicing their faith, or for refusing to convert to other religions. Persecution of Christians includes public beheadings, torture often resulting in death, and mass killings. Other followers of Christ are maligned, discredited, abused, imprisoned, discriminated against, and driven from their homes and families.
This Sunday the world will not be silent—this Sunday we will pray! Join with your prayers and raise your voices. Speak reversal to nations and powers where persecution exists. Ask God to comfort and rescue our Christian brothers and sisters.
