Pray for the Persecuted

We’re hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. (2 Corinthians 4:8-9)

Today is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. Millions of Christians worldwide are praying for our brothers and sisters who are in dangerous and difficult circumstances due to their faith.

We’re all in this together. As Paul said, when one part of the body suffers, “all the parts suffer.” (1 Corinthians 12:26)

Pray through it with all your heart.
