It is so important for us as the church of God to unite in prayer for our brethren in Christ around the world under persecution for preaching the Gospel. We need to be aware of what is happening to our brothers and sisters in the Lord to stand in the gap for them in prayer, asking the Lord for strengths, love, and faith as 1 Peter 4:12-19 (NIV) says:
"12 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoiceinasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. 14 If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 15 If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. 16 However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. 17 For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 And,
“If it is hard for the righteous to be saved,
what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?”[a]
19 So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good."
As believers in Christ, are we ready to suffer for Jesus Christ?

Amen Pastor! Indeed we need to pray for our suffering family in Christ. All over the world men and women are being tortured for preaching, teaching, and for professing faith in Jesus Christ. It's time to pray.

Wow, its like I hear each pastor, missionary, believers who lost their life as martyr for the Gospel saying what Paul said in Philippians 1:12-26, but I would like to emphasized the verse 21 that says:

Amen Pastor Siri! What you are doing is sounding the trumpet for men and women of God to rise up and be fearless! Hallelujah! Fight the good fight of faith in the power given us by the Holy Spirit! "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of Power, Love, and a Sound Mind." 2 Tim. 1:7

Please pray with me for my Dad, as he transitions from this life to the one where hope springs eternal. Pray for his comfort and his peace. I thank God for his blessed assurance that Jesus is ours, and we are His. Thank you in advance, and thank You Heavenly Father.
