While we enjoy the opportunity to choose Jesus, the Christ, as Lord of our lives, Christians in many other countries of the world do not enjoy that blessing; they are persecuted for being Christians. In some cases the persecution means torture and forced labor; for others, confessing Jesus as Lord means their home and/or church building is burned. In some cases, terrorism and/or slavery is the price Christians must pay. In some cases, brothers and sisters in the Lord are executed for their commitment. In this 21st century since Jesus walked on this earth, Christians are suffering, bleeding, even dying for their faith. We are told by those close to persecuted Christians, that they often ask for our prayer. We hope you join us in responding positively to that request.
