Pray for the Persecuted: “I’ve Been Remembered”

Yes, Sunday, November 6, has been designated as “International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.”

I can’t implore you strongly enough to pray, every day, for our Brothers and Sisters in Christ, around the world, who are being persecuted for their faith in Jesus. I urge you to include these men, women, and children, and their families and churches, as part of your daily prayers.
We must, every day, heed the words of Hebrews 13:3:
“Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; [and] them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.”

Please. Every day.
Pray.
Please.
God can open doors no man can close.
God can close doors no man can open.
There is nothing He can’t do.
There is nothing too hard for Him.

How often I write, is such series’ as “Wealth Stored for the Righteous,” how blessed we are, right now … So much of our daily blessings are the result of … just where we live …

Again, I urge you, I beseech you, to pray for those who don’t enjoy the freedoms we have.
I always include a video to go with this annual observance, and, for weeks, I had planned to share a particular video. Now, as I sit here on a Friday night, home from School, before the weekend, the laundry sounding in the background … I discovered this video, from the ministry of “Open Doors.”

I found this song.
This song.

This is the only song I have played on this Friday night, and I must share it with you.

The words of Jesus.
The words of Paul.

Numbers I’ve seen, yet, here in this country, find so astounding:
The percentage of the world’s population who are living under persecution.
As I’ve written so many times:
“We don’t have a clue.”
“I don’t have a clue.”
How many people, worldwide, in other countries, “over there,” who live, every day, with the threat of imprisonment or death, just because they choose to believe in Jesus …

73% of the world’s population live under persecution … Most of them are Christians …
That is hundreds of millions.
Yes … hundreds of millions.
Every day.
That’s hundreds of millions.

The words of Jesus.
The words of Paul.
The words of this song.

The words of this song:
“I’ve been remembered by someone far away …”

“My heart sings with the knowledge that I do not stand alone … We are truly connected …”

The prayer at the end:
“We pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who share our faith … but not our freedom …”

One more time:
“We pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who share our faith … but not our freedom …”
