Yesterday our church observed the International Day of Prayer (IDOP) by gathering with a few other churches from the community and praying for the persecuted church throughout the world. Specifically, we prayed for Turkey, Iran, and North Korea. In these places, Christians, who are quite scarce, can't worship publicly without consequence. They preach the Gospel knowing it may cost them their life. They preach the Gospel knowing it could cause them torture and assault. Despite the hatred that is shown towards Christians in those countries, Christians still seek to spread the Gospel of Christ.
