So far this month, our Sunday School teacher has told us the stories of three people who have suffered because they believe in Jesus. We met Mehdi Forootan who was put in jail in Iran because of his faith in Jesus. He was in prison for one hundred and five days before he was allowed to go home. We met Nguyen Thi Lan, a woman in Vietnam, who was hurt very badly in an attack. Then she was turned away and not taken care of at the hospital. And we met Gamal Abdou Massoud, a teenager in Egypt who was sent to jail on charges no one could prove were true.
This morning, we talked more about them and their homelands. Had we remembered to pray for Mehdi, Nguyen Thi Lan, and Gamal this month? Had we remembered to pray for Iran, Vietnam, and Egypt? And had we asked God to help us be brave when it is hard to obey Him and do what He says?
We colored a picture that we can use to help us remember to pray for them. If you’d like to color one yourself, you can find it here.
