Today, more than ever, Christians around the world are suffering for being obedient to the faith.
Wherever he can, the devil stirs up hatred and trouble for those who actively shine the light of Jesus Christ and the knowledge of the gospel in a dark place.
If you want to live a godly life in Christ Jesus you will suffer persecution, so remember those in prison as if chained with them (Hebrews 13:3).
Stand with your brothers and sisters in Christ through prayer.
Every year, approximately 175,000 Christians are martyred for their faith, and countless others endure torture, discrimination and hardship. We are blessed to live in a country without such persecution, but we should not forget about those less fortunate. Not only can we stay aware of their situation, but in many cases we can help ease their suffering. And in all cases, we can pray for them!
