Tomorrow is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. There is a lot of information online. I'm humbled reading and thinking about the persecuted church. I have so much--so much freedom. I read on one of the websites that the persecuted Christians are encouraged and feel others praying for them. Isn't that amazing. I don't feel worthy to pray for their suffering. Why do they suffer and I have so much freedom?? Feelings aside, the Bible says that our prayers help struggling believers (Romans 15:30-33). The Bible also makes it clear that God is sovereign; it's beyond my understanding--it's faith.
So take time today (and every day) to pray for the persecuted church. I found great resources for adults as well as children here on the IDOP official website. There is a map you can print out, prayer requests, devotions for kids, etc.
Also, a couple weeks ago our pastor mentioned Ken Boa's website as a resource for strengthening our walk with the Lord. I visited the site tonight and it is great. There are tons of archived articles, resources and Bible reading guides that you can download. I saved some and I signed up for his daily growth devotional. It will be delivered to my inbox each day!
Please share neat sites you've found that help you in your spiritual walk!
