Summary: The most persecuted people here on earth are the Christians.
HOLY SPIRIT BLESS US
Cry out for help? Turn to Jesus!
Isaiah 35: 4 “Say to those who are fearful-hearted, “Be strong, do not fear!
Behold, your God will come with vengeance, With the recompense of God;
He will come and save you.”
In Matthew 11: 28 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
There are plenty of things that we need to be thankful of about the religion of Christianity. We are so fortunate and blessed that we belong to the so called Christians.
Those who surrendered their life to Jesus Christ, those who accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior, those who walk as a brand new person because of faith and trust to Jesus Christ… I tell you, we are so blessed indeed.
Being a Christian is one of the best and greatest thing that will ever happen to a person. And being a Christian is letting Christ be the center and head of everything in your life.
It is all about allowing God Almighty to take full control of the things in our life that are out of control.
Do we consider ourselves as Christians? This is neither about religion or about denominational affiliation but this is about Christ!
Believe me, the most persecuted people here on earth are the Christians.
You can even imagine how difficult life is if you belong to Christ.
Every month I am receiving a magazine called “The Voice of the Martyrs”. Most of the head lines are the ff:
Chinese Police record their torture of Christians.
One Thousand Bibles were burned by anti-Christian forces in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia last year.
There are unexplainable occurrences that the Christians have been experience everyday. Some are living with fear and uncertainties.
Just allow me to read some of the September updates and prayer request from the Christian Law Association.
Pray that a ministry in VIRGINIA that reaches out to help homosexuals escape from their lifestyle will be given free space in the local telephone book in the same manner as free space is given to another group that advocates the homosexual lifestyle.
Pray for a public school teacher in NORTH CAROLINA who was told that teachers may not pray together at school before the start of their school day.
Pray for a Christian in GEORGIA who is asking his school board to discontinue a national secular news broadcast for students at the start of the school day because of inappropriate advertising and music content.
Pray for soul winners in NORTH CAROLINA who are challenging a local ordinance requiring that if more than 3 people plan ahead to gather on a public street for any purpose, they must obtain a permit ahead of time. Under this ordinance if 3 friends arranged to meet on a city street for any purpose, they would be violating the law if they did not first obtain a permit from the city.
Pray for a small business entrepreneur in OHIO who is being told he cannot obtain a loan from a local development corporation because his business will be distributing free religious tracts along with items for sale.
Pray for a public school cafeteria worker in MICHIGAN who was terminated after she complained about a teacher who was distributing gay activist materials to students.
Pray that a county children’s program in FLORIDA will permit a Bible club program to participate on an equal basis with other groups. In the past this group has been denied access, but a new board is now reconsidering the request. CLA has provided legal information to the committee.
Please continue to pray for Christian workers in INDIANA who have been denied the right to meet together at work on the same basis as other employees and to form affinity groups to meet and share common interests as Christians in the same way as other workers do. The company policy permits various diversity groups to meet, including a gay/lesbian group, but it will not permit Christian workers to meet together on an equal basis.
Pray for a federal worker in ILLINOIS who has been told he may not bring his Bible into a federal workplace, even to read on his own free time. This is an obvious violation of federal workplace guidelines.
Pray for an employee in NEW YORK who has been told he is not permitted to mention the name of Jesus at work, even in conversations with other workers. He has also been banned from leaving religious tracts in a break room where other employees share various types of reading material.
Please pray for students in PENNSYLVANIA who are circulating petitions requesting a moment of silence in their local school at the start of the day.
Pray for a Christian worker in ARKANSAS who wants to start an after school Bible club.
