Pray for All Persecuted This Holiday

Sergey Ponomarev/New York Times

As we celebrate the holidays, let’s remember that this is one of those savage epochs when some families must choose between their faith and their lives. It is an echo of when Nero burned Christians alive, or when self-described Christians unleashed pogroms against Jews.

This article has some sobering truths about the religious persecution happening worldwide right now. And not just against Christians, but also Yazidis, Mandeans, Bahai, and Muslims. Christ have mercy. We should also be thankful for World Relief, whose work is mentioned positively in this article.

"Chains shall he break, for the slave is our brother, and in His name all oppression shall cease."
