Sunday was the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. Please visit Persecution Blog to learn more about the vast numbers of Christians persecuted around the world for their faith. I subscribe to the free Voice of the Martyrs magazine. It has deepened my personal faith, while growing my love and respect for these modern day martyrs. Go here to get the free newsletter. You can also sign up for a weekly email newsletter, which gives you current prayer request from around the world.
