It’s easy to feel so removed from stories of persecution. But we’re intimately connected with those who give it all for Jesus. The worldwide church that we’re all part of is one body and it’s the thing God has chosen to use to change the world. We need to act and support the part of the church that is suffering. We need to answer God’s call: ‘Wake Up. Strengthen what remains and is about to die’ (Rev 3:2).
Getting up early isn’t supposed to be easy. This is about giving up some of the comfort of our lives (a few more minutes in bed) to stand with those who risk everything for Jesus. This is about prayer. And real prayers ask God to not just change the world, but change our hearts too.
We’ll be spending time in God’s word and praying for real North Korean Christians who are putting it all on the line for their faith. We know prayer has no boundaries. Our prayers can take hope across barbed wire, through locked prison doors and into even the hardest of hearts. With just a little bit of faith Jesus says we can move mountains, so let’s build our faith and let’s pray like we’ve never prayed before!
We support people who are beaten, tortured,
imprisoned, falsely accused, and hated simply for following Jesus.
