Ye shall be witness unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea,
and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Every Wednesday night we pray for different countries that are considered “restricted” or “closed” nations. In many of these countries the individuals there have their freedoms either stripped away from them or they are so oppressed that they cannot worship God freely. As Christians here in the U.S., I believe we have two major responsibilities when it comes to this area of the persecuted church.
First, we need to thank God for our freedom to worship as we wish, and with that we need to take advantage of it. Our lack of assembling together for worship, lack of Bible reading, lack of prayer, and failure to witness on a regular basis are all evidence of ingratitude for the freedoms that God has given us.
Second, we need to be proactive in what we do for the persecuted church. It begins with prayer. Prayer is not a second option. It should always be our first option. We can also get involved in some physical or financial way. There are plenty of things that you can do for the Lord in these regions of the world. There is everything from signing petitions, donating money, or making items available for use in these parts of the world. For more information find www.persecution.net or .com.
