Our spiritual life is so cushy here in the States. There were, are, and will be martyrs for Christ. There are currently people that are putting their lives in danger to go to church, read a bible, or share the Gospel. While we are not currently in that situation, we can make it a practice to pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ. They are apart of us because they are apart of the Church. A time may come when we are the ones that are being persecuted, and we will want prayers sent out to us.
Set aside one day a week to pray for the persecuted church.
