Our persecuted brothers and sisters
I have been reading a book on Christians who are persecuted around the world, I am N by The Voice of Martyrs, and it breaks my heart to hear their stories. It opened my eyes as to the need for much prayer and support for them. It puts it all into perspective for me when I find myself in situations where there's hatred. It is nothing in comparison to what these people are suffering and yet they persevere in joy and in thankfulness.
