Christians in the Crosshairs

burnt_churchChristian persecution continues in the Middle East and wherever Muslim theology and law are allowed to dominate public life.

Following Egypt’s “Arab Spring,” at least five dozen Christian churches have been burned, crosses torn down, and nuns humiliated by Islamic mobs. Christian homes, churches, schools and orphanages are frequently targeted to be torched.

Christian history was highlighted with extensive growth in the kingdoms east and west of the Nile River, in the first centuries after Christ. The Muslim religion violently conquered the region in the seventh century and subjugated any Jews and Christians, who may have been allowed to live. Anti-Christian persecution has been sanctioned in mosques and ignored by governments in the region, since that time.

Let us pray for our persecuted Christian brothers and sisters, who are “in the crosshairs” of Islamic fanatics. Pray for God’s protection, supernatural courage, strength and peace for them and their families.
