“Strengthen what remains. . . ” Revelation 3:2.
Sunday, November 5 was the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. A number of recent studies have shown that Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world. More than 90,000 Christians were killed for their faith in 2016, most in Africa and Asia.
Prayer is the number one request of persecuted Christians, and they are asking us to join them in prayer for strength and perseverance so that, despite difficult trials, Christians will continue to shine for Jesus and share the gospel in the most dangerous places.
