It is time for all Christians to face this onslaught on their knees. This is what we are called to do while we still have some freedom, limited as it now has become. Tomorrow, Sunday is extremely crucial for all Christians. Don’t just read this and say, ‘tch tch.’ We MUST all take part, beginning immediately. Pastors please take note: Christians, alert your pastors. Commentator-popular radio host Jerry Newcombe gives wise counsel we must act upon for our very survival.
Pray for the Persecuted Church
By Jerry Newcombe
Sunday, November 13, 2011 has been designated as the International Day of Prayer for the persecuted church.
It is anticipated that congregations across the globe will be praying for those who suffer for the “crime” of believing in Jesus.
Worldwide, about 200 million Christians are at risk, simply for being Christians. This is true in the dominant Muslim countries and the remnant Communist countries, e.g., China, North Korea, Vietnam, Cuba.
An annual, organized day of prayer, to remember those so persecuted has been going on since 1996. Usually, it’s the second Sunday of November. Thousands of churches and organizations, as well as countless individuals, have participated in this international ritual.
