Persecuted Christian Week - 2nd weekend of every month

Although thousands of miles may stand between us, our persecuted brothers and sisters are as much our family as our own flesh and blood - and we are called to bear their burdens with them. When we care for those suffering for the sake of Christ, we are caring for Christ himself. Please join together daily reciting the Companions Prayer

Give justice to the weak and the fatherless;

       Maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.

Rescue the weak and the needy;

       Deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

            Psalm 82 3-4

The Jeff Cavins Show: "The Fear Behind Closed Doors" 

Taped audio show: After the Crucifixion, the disciples shut themselves up in the Upper Room, in fear of their lives. Jesus came among them and said, “Peace be with you.”  As we experience fear and uncertainty these few weeks, we ultimately must realize that everything will be OK if we put ourselves in God’s hands.
