 but not  forsaken"

2 Cor. 2:7-10



Please pray

 for these faithful witnesses of His Truth and love.

"... we were burdened beyond measure, above strength, so that we despaired even of life. Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God..." 2 Corinthians 1:8-9

Persecuting Jesus: "In the Roman Circus, the small flock of Christians is huddled in the sand, kneeling around their aged pastor. We see weeping little children, whole families gathered. In the stands are tens of thousands of people, none of whose faces are visible, but they are colorfully dressed, awaiting a special entertainment. The scene is eerily lighted by flaming crosses.

    "Looking more closely, however, we see those crosses bear Christians, covered in pitch and set aflame. Their suffering, at least, will be brief. Out of the depths beneath the Circus stride lions.... The lead lion advances menacingly toward the Believers....

    "In Egypt, there has been a sharp increase in the murder of Coptic Christians. ...Christians are familiar with the Bible passage in the Book of Acts where Jesus speaks to Saul. 'Why do you persecute me?' ... Saul is on his way to Damascus.

    "How very appropriate this passage is to our own day. For it is in Damascus that Christians are being newly endangered. And when that is the case, it is not just Jesus’ followers are being persecuted, it is Jesus Himself. We have His word on that....

    "As we approach this Sunday’s International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, it is good to remember that we are citizens, too. We should pray for our brethren suffering all over the bloody crescent."
