Again, we’ve got it good.
The ability to worship, sing praises and proclaim our faith is a blessing beyond measure. Just recently, my church assembled (by the hundreds) to worship in a brand new facility with soft seating, automatic heating and adequate lighting. As one of our deacons, Alex Marshall, sang “Jesus, I Love You”, we could boldly throw our hands in the air, shout our praises and worship freely without fear of murder, punishment or persecution. We’re so blessed.
It is very important to note not all Egyptians, or followers of Islam, hate Christians. Nevertheless, this type of persecution is a lingering and serious problem around the world.
The Washington Post says national leaders, inside and outside of the government asked the United States to intervene and help Christians overseas. Last month during a congressional hearing, they asked our government do more to “investigate violence against religious minorities and to lay out a clear strategy in Iraq for their protection.”
My soul aches as I think of the pain, laments and prayers of my Christian brothers and sisters all over the world. The mothers, especially the mothers and children.
Well, if I know nothing else, I know that prayer moves the hand of God. I still believe that God moves as His people pray. Keep your theology that believes otherwise- I have no use for it.
So, with that, I’ll say, please pray for Christians in other countries.
