Do you remember last week, when I told you about getting to hear Darcie Gill, our special guest speaker at church? I remembered something else I wanted to tell you!
Darcie told me the story of a pastor who lives in a country where Christians aren’t allowed to tell other people about Jesus. But that didn’t stop this pastor. He kept telling people how much God loved them. He got arrested and put in prison. And the guards were terrible to him. They beat him up time after time. He was hurt badly and needed a doctor. But the guards didn’t care. As far as they were concerned, the pastor was a criminal because he told people about Jesus.
When Christians found out what was happening to the pastor, they wrote thousands of letters to him! And God used the letters to lead the prison guards to get the doctors and medicine the pastor needed.
Darcie said she knew of countless cases where God used letters people sent for wonderful things. Who knows what God might do with the letters you write.
“Dear God, please help me to remember to pray for Christians who aren’t free to worship You and serve You. And, please help me help them anyway You want me to. Thank You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
