Help provide immediate support for persecuted Christians in Africa

A Gift For Families

June 20, 2013 by Open Doors in

family Family… a word which has been defined as many things: a group of people associated by kinship, similar features and attributes or even a group of people living together. Many times when we think of the word family, we think of our own family unit; our spouse, children, siblings, parents and grandparents. The word brings a certain association with our own family memories of both the good and bad times. Since society has defined the word family in such small context, it is often difficult to remember that we are part of a very large family‚Ķthe body of Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:26 says we Christians are one body; when one member suffers, we all suffer. When one is lifted up, we all rejoice. Some of our family members around the world are facing persecution. In countries like Nigeria, families cannot attend church together without the constant fear of being attacked. In countries like Uzbekistan, Christian families can be torn apart when a father is placed in prison for sharing the gospel. It can be disheartening to think about what is happening to our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world, but you can make a difference! The number one thing that persecuted Christians ask for is prayer. Would you also prayerfully consider taking the next step and giving a gift to support persecuted families? Our brothers and sisters who are persecuted are always so blessed to know that their Christian family members around the world are supporting and praying for them. Thank you for uniting the body of Christ in this way! Provide A Gift

  1. The Church must not be silent. We must cry out against evil. We must fast & pray. We must proclaim the Gospel of Christ. It is imperative that we answer this call. We will give an account to the LORD for our response in these days. Praying that the LORD will pour out His Spirit upon these Iraqi Christians and upon us. Praying that the Church will awaken & not be silent.

  2. Don’t expect the Government to act, this is the Churches responsibility to step up and care for these people, pray for them. and according to Proverbs 24:11-12 we are to “rescue those who are being taken away to death”. God will hold those in his Church guilty who do not pray and act on behalf of these people.

  3. we are ignoring this with or day life with work school or problems , its time to pray and give some of or money to helps those country’st there people that are dying from hongry and geting kill by those people… so sad ūüôĀ
