Persecution Prayers

This update from Michelle Malkin on the Afgani Christian who was being tried.

ABDUL RAHMAN UPDATE: “He’s doing fine. He has to be filmed from behind during interviews, and he’s getting a new identity from the Italian government and so that the local jihadis don’t find him and cut his head off.

But other than that, he’s doing swell.

Spiegel reports on a day in the life of Afghanistan’s Christians:

The locations of services change constantly as well, and they are always held in private homes, where everything has to be prepared well in advance. The household staff must be away; neighbors mustn’t notice anything; and everyone has to have the 100 percent trust of everyone else. It is too dangerous to even have a Bible at most services, says Kabar, who knows his prayers by heart. Police have come and searched his house three times already, but failed to find anything incriminating. ‘They know I’m a Christian,’ he says. ‘But I won’t give them any reason to put me on trial.’

Do you know your Bible well enough that you could lead services without it? Do people know you’re a Christian?

Are you a cultural Christian or a convicted Christian?

Lord, we pray for the persecuted Christians around the world. Forgive us for adhering to cultural Christianity and forgetting our Christians. Let people know us by our love. In Jesus name. Amen.
