Pray for persecuted Christians


Reading through Matthew 24: 9 this morning, Jesus reminds his disciples that a day is coming when they will be persecuted for his name's sake.

With our busy life in America--complete with American Idol, news about Lebron James, a sour economy, movies, leisure--we often forget the desperate plight of Christ followers in other parts of the world.

One of the ways I fight my tendencies for self-absorption is by learning about God's work in other parts of the world. I commend to you Mission Network News, a great website that will help you become a more global Christian.

Also, the link below highlights a disturbing article about Hindus in India and their government backed plans to reconvert to Hinduism by 2011, those who have confessed Jesus as their Lord!

When you are through reading, please pray that the word of God might increase with power throughout India and in all places where Christ followers are under attack!
