Two wings lift a person up from earthy concerns: simplicity and purity. Simplicity should be in intention, purity in feelings. Simplicity reaches out after God, purity catches hold and tastes. ~ Thomas A’Kempis

This morning in my prayer time I was lifting up Pastors all over the world 
and especially those who are imprisoned for their faith. I was also praying for persecuted Christians who have to gather to worship in secret for fear of being arrested.

I thought of those people who are actively trying to rid their towns of Christians 
and an image came to mind of a man in a field. 
It was very hot and dry and because of that little fires were breaking out everywhere. 
The man was trying in vain to stamp out the fires, but no sooner did he think
 he'd done it than another one would break out not far from him. 

The fire of God that ignites, illuminates and reveals the Lord's mercy, grace and love to human hearts is unstoppable. Throughout history man has tried to come against the gospel and yet the more it is opposed the faster it grows. Why?? 
Because it is supernatural and not of this world. 
It's not something that can ever be stopped. 

I find this awesome, powerful and empowering.

Dear Lord - may I always strive to be bold in my witness for you, and to never shrink back even if I'm abused or people make fun of me. Help me to always remember your great sacrifice for me and to pray regularly for the millions of Christians around the world who suffer daily just for believing in you. Help me to lift them regularly in prayer, standing strong in faith, trusting and 'believing' that you hear my prayers and will answer them.  May those believers who suffer know they're not alone - In Jesus precious Name ~ Amen
