It’s been crazy, guys. For a couple of nights, I have had dreams of me being held in an interment camp for my faith. The feeling of not being free to go where I wanted to go was one of the worst feelings I have felt, and the fear that I or my family may die produced a sad hopelessness in me.
I woke up from them in the middle of the night, asking Jesus to remove the dream from me. Then, I realized the importance of praying for those who are actually in those types of camps—being beaten, leaving family behind, digging their own graves.
“Remember those who are in chains, as if imprisoned with them, and those who are ill treated, since you are also in the body.”
(Hebrews 13:3, MEV)
Our own brothers and sisters all over this planet do not have nearly as much as we have here in the US. May we enjoy this freedom while it lasts, be ready to start fighting battles for our faith when need be, and pray for those who have been doing so for some time, now.
