“God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right,for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.” (Matthew 5:10, NLT)

“The Book of Acts records early church history. After the stoning of Stephen, the first Christian martyr, the eighth chapter begins, “On that day a great persecution broke out against the church” (verse 1, NIV). Jesus told his followers to expect persecution. In John 15:20, He says, “If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also” (NIV). Since Christians don’t experience persecution much in the Western world, we sometimes think it doesn’t exist.

Prayer: Father, knowing You is life and peace. Please give strength and courage today to believers and Christian workers as they share the Gospel. Bring much fruit as a result of their faithfulness to obey and follow You no matter the cost. Amen.”
