Prayer for the Persecuted Church

Most of us reading this blog live in places where we can worship God freely. We don't have to worry about getting into trouble for going to church, reading the Bible, or praying. But for many people around the world, this isn't the case.
That's why this Sunday is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. It's a day for everyone to ask God's blessings on those who are living out the Christian faith even though it may be dangerous for them to do so.

We hope you'll take some time to pray for Christians all over the world that aren't able to express their faith freely. You can read some of their stories by visiting the Kids of Courage page from The Voice of the Martyrs. While you're there, you can also learn about people who are helping to spread the message of Christ in many places around the world.
