Pray for Christians in India

I was alerted of this urgent prayer need via my good friends and heroes...Brent and Virginia Earwicker...missionaries in Uganda, Africa. Please pray for Christians in Urissa, India. They have suffered severe persecution as an anti-Christian rampage has attacked pastors, killed believers, burned churches, and raped young Christian women.

I thought selfishly for a moment, as I looked at my sweet baby girls sleeping so comfortably in their fluffy beds, that I would rather not know of such horror going on around the world. Shame on me. Thanks, Brent, for the wake up call. He says in his blog,

I had been reading in Hebrews 13 just that day and found the verse that commanded, “Remember the prisoners as if chained with them—those who are mistreated—since you yourselves are in the body also.” My wife whacked her baby toe against the coffee table yesterday and the pain instantly shot throughout her body, causing her to writhe in agony on the sofa for a number of minutes. Her entire being felt that shock wave from one of the smallest appendages on her petite frame. I believe we should respond to the tribulation of our relatives in a similar fashion: praying fervently for the pain relief of our Body.

Please join with me and pray fervently for these dear brothers and sisters! Our prayers are powerful!
