First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is being reported all over the world. God, whom I serve in my spirit in preaching the gospel of his Son, is my witness how constantly I remember you in my prayers at all times; and I pray that now at last by God’s will the way may be opened for me to come to you. Romans 1:8-10
We live in very interesting times in the world. We hear of events almost in real time as they occur. Never in the history of mankind are was connected as we are today. Tragically we hear of churches burning and Christians being persecuted in near real time as well.
Perhaps you know or have heard of Believers in restricted lands. They need our prayers desperately. They need to know that we in the comfortable West care about them. It literally can mean life and death to them.
