(Voice of the Persecuted) Praying the Word Over the Persecuted is a new project offered by Voice of the Persecuted to unite the body of Christ in prayer for our suffering brothers and sister.

That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NLT) also see (KJV)

Please pray that our persecuted family will fix their gaze on the unseen things of Christ.

Lord Jesus, we pray for your persecuted bride, our persecuted brothers and sisters. We pray that their eyes will be fixed on you and the unseen reality of eternity. May your light flood their hearts and their whole being be filled with you. We pray they will find encouragement that comes only from being united with you and your word. My God and King, we pray this in your name. Amen and Amen!!!

    When growing up some 70+ years ago in the Midwest, Christian persecution was hard to contemplate. We had it easy. Persecution in our minds, in America at least, was what we read about in the Bible pertaining to first century Christians. Or maybe we had a missionary to Africa speak at our Sunday School class and she addressed the persecution “over there.” Well, America, time to wake up. Christian and increasingly anti-Jewish persecution examples are front and center as the USA has become a 50-50 split nation. This balance is tilted by a super liberal media that no longer claims neutrality and which bolsters super liberal ideologies. That alone cant be good; we know what Abe Lincoln, another midwesterner, said about division. We can’t stand. So it may be a rocky road ahead of us as political divisions reach into churches and families and everyone being ‘forced’ to take a side now, whether you want to or not. This split at it’s spiritual core is a secular vs. Godly belief system. It’s between those who look to and put their trust in God for all things and secularists who believe it is their own choice to decide all, not just for themselves, but for all (for their own ‘good’). The Bible has many warnings about this arrogance AND the constant tension between believers and unbelievers, in a marriage, in business and yes between and among nations. Ancient Israel in the Bible is a good example; it progressed or failed depending on the righteousness level of the Kings and Priests! In America and most of the Western nations, thus split stems from a presumptious all knowing government class that must have power by any means to make the correct decisions for the benefit of the less informed, less prepared, and the less capable. Look at California and NYC for examples. Sugary drinks and their plastic straws are out! In San Francisco they are outlawing common plastic water bottles in the airpirt. If you want water, you must buy from them socially aware, sustainably sourced, healthier water. When we accept these little things, watch out as more consequential decrees are made. And free government stuff for everyone that will bring any nation and the people to their knees! It is already happening. As one 80 year old grandma said, she worked very hard to raise her family and most of her grandkids too on a low income. She couldn’t possibly go to college. But now that it will be free for all, she says wryly, “Now I can!”
