    Pray for the Persecuted Church - July 8, 2015

    When Christians in other countries are physically attacked and injured because they refuse to deny Christ, many Christian relief organizations have doctors, nurses and other medical personnel who go into these areas to treat the injured and help them recover. They sometimes work with local hospitals and doctors to get the best possible care for those who are injured because of their faith in Christ. These teams often have to work in dangerous situations. They not only treat their injuries and pray for them, but they pay for medications, advocate on behalf of the persecuted and try to follow-up on these injured Christians.

    Esther Moses lost her arm in an attack on Christians in northern Nigeria. She writes,

    "I am grateful for all you have done for me. You took care of me, paid my hospital bill and all the medications. And you did not stop there, you also provided me with the best prosthesis. You have been praying for us and giving us courage."

    Please pray for these medical teams who treat and minister to these injured Christians. Pray for their safe access to those who need their help and for protection as they bring relief and hope to those who would otherwise have no help.

    "....on Him we have set our hope that He will continue to deliver us as you help us by your prayers." II Cor.1:10b

    Thank you for your prayers.
