(AgapePress) - Christians in the United States are being encouraged to join in a corporate prayer effort for believers worldwide who face persecution.
Sunday, November 12, is the annual International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. Christians in America are asked to pray for more than 200 million believers who suffer for the faith in Christ. Pastors are being encouraged to incorporate sermons about the persecuted Church into their Sunday services.
Dr. Carl Moeller is president of Open Doors USA, a ministry that helps raise awareness of the persecuted Church worldwide. Moeller says it is important for Christians in free nations to remember those in persecuted countries. He reminds believers that when the Apostle Paul was in prison, he asked his fellow believers to "remember my chains." the rest
