Examin Sunday 7 September 2014

Persecution rages against our Christian brothers and sisters in Syria, Iraq, and elsewhere. They deserve, nay they are entitled, to our prayers; prayers that the hardness of their persecutors' hearts will be relieved and they will cease from their vile acts; prayers that if the persecution continues that these our brethren will have the strength to persevere to the end; and prayers that our world leaders will take note of their plight and take action to assist them. We too must do what can to assist them further, whether by giving to relief agencies or appealing to our politicians to speak out. Christ said that if we gave even a cup of cold water to one in need, we gave it to him. How then can we neglect to do our utmost for those who face martyrdom for their fidelity to his name?
