The Blood of the Martyrs is the Seed…

“The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church.” — Tertullian

I will write more on this topic later, but for now, pray. I was shaken and sickened as I read through the latest issue of “Voice of the Martyrs” magazine, which came today. Well, I’m sure you know how I feel if you’ve ever taken the time to find out the situations of believers around the world . . . beaten, tortured, raped, jailed, kidnapped, killed.

Pray. Pray for me as I wait for God’s next instruction. Pray for yourself that you might be driven to as strong a sense of urgency about spreading the priceless treasure of the Gospel as our persecuted brothers and sisters. Pray for God’s church in the West, that it might be shaken out of its sleep and selfish complacency. And most of all, pray that the blood of the martyrs will not have been spilled in vain, that the Gospel will go out with even more power than ever before as the Enemy tries to rein it in with terror and anguish.

“. . . and you are holding on to My name and did not deny your faith in Me. . .”

  1. Laura, God is already using you!

    I am grateful to God for a daughter like you!

    My daughter whom I love, bless you in Jesus' name . . .

  2. Laura.. thanks for the church advice.

    I whole heartedly agree with your prayer… I we (Americans) Christians would really and truely come to know how to follow Christ ..die and suffer for truth of the Gospel.
