One With Them: 1 Corinthians 12:26
Request your wristbands.

Our brothers and sisters will no longer suffer alone and forgotten. Through the power of prayer, you and I will be ONE WITH THEM.

The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted ChurchSunday, November 13th, 2011is on its way.

Will you join me, and millions of other believers, in prayer on that day? Together, we will ask God to strengthen countless Christians who are living under tyranny… to bless those who risk their lives because they have decided to follow Jesus (watch the video).

Perhaps you can talk to your pastor, or small group, to see if your church body could participate. Or you and your loved ones can simply spend a special time in prayer on that day, focusing on persecuted believers around the world.

Either way, I want to provide everything you and your church need for this event, for free, at

  • Real stories to reflect upon and share, video interviews of persecuted Christians, and more will be at your fingertips.

  • Also available will be six free studies based on my and David Hegg’s new book, The Privilege of Persecution; these would be great for a small group study or to use for family devotions.

  • If you haven’t yet done so, you can still request your two free rubber barbwire wristbands, and order some for others. They are a great reminder to pray, to get people talking about what faithfulness to Christ can cost in some nations, and to open doors to spiritual conversations.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
