2014-11-12: Persecuted Church.

Give thanks and praise to God for the role of the persecuted church in spreading the Gospel and proving genuine faith. “In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith – of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire – may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory, and honor when Jesus is revealed” (1 Pet 1:6-7).  Pray for more men and women who will turn from persecuting believers to joining them in worship.
