You may have seen the news that, just last Sunday, a suicide bomber walked into a church in Indonesia, triggering a blast that injured at least 30 people.
Such is the painful reality for persecuted Christians — they are targeted even as they worship.
That’s why I keep wearing my wristband and I hope you are too.
In addition to wearing a wristband, your prayers for brothers and sisters in these closed nations are critical.
Let us know if you will join millions of believers for a special time of corporate prayer on November 13th, The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.
Visit onewiththem.com and go to the International Day of Prayer page to download materials that will inspire you, your friends and church to intercede on behalf of persecuted Christians. Free resources include a pastor’s guide and six weeks of lessons, testimonies, bulletin inserts, music and powerful videos.
It is time to pray.
Yours for Remembering the Persecuted,
