Persecuted Christians

As we pray for persecuted Christians around the world, our prayers can be informed by a letter sent recently by Evangelical Christian leaders (including NAE President Leith Anderson) to U.S. President Barak Obama, encouraging him to strengthen actions to protect religious minorities in the region (particularly Northern Iraq) that is being severely impacted by the terror inflicted by radical Islamists seeking, by force, to establish an Islamic State.

  1. It is encouraging to see voices being raised across denominational and faith boundaries against the horrible and cold blooded genocide we are watching and hearing about on a daily basis in the news. The way to peace will find many obstacles in its way, but our world leaders must not give up.

    “An act of terrorism is not an ideology, nor religion.
    It is the lack of hope, of opportunity and of love.
    When there is no recourse, no other way there is only insurrection.
    Understanding, compassion and respect for all life is what will save us all.”

    ― Mahima Martel, The Insurrectionist

  2. God’s richest encouragement, blessing and strength to all fellow believers. Marcia and I are humbled to watch the strength of faith of our persecuted family around the globe recalling Hebrews 13:3 “…as though being mistreated with them…” and praying Isaiah 41:10-13 “…do not fear, I will help you.” We mark November 2nd as International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. Marcia and I utilize the websites and ministries below as part of our personal ministry for the persecuted believers and siblings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
