Offered in prayer on behalf of the brothers and sisters in Christ who, unlike those of us in the West –yet– are being hunted because of their faith. Everywhere we turn these days, evil seems to be feasting. But it is not victory, and it will not last:
When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne. They cried out with a loud voice, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brothers should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had been. (Revelation 6: 9-11)
Even so, come Lord Jesus!
