When we pray for those in prison for their faith, we remember that the gospel came to us in letters written from jail. When we plead for those whose churches are burned in Egypt, we remember that our hope isn’t in building religious empires but in a New Jerusalem we’ve never seen. When we weep for those crucified in Syria, we remember that our Lord isn’t a guru or a life coach, but a crucified Christ.

As we worship this week in freedom and prosperity, let’s remember in prayer our brothers and sisters in the Lord, around the world, who are suffering for Jesus’ name.
