Miracle Monday - Praying for a Miracle

Today’s Miracle Monday post is not so much about a miracle that has happened, but a miracle we are praying for.

If you didn’t know, my parents are missionaries in South Asia. Their names and exact location cannot be published for security reasons.

They are overseas with a 2 year mission program designed for retirees. They are sent over and paid a salary for jobs that they do within our mission organization for our denomination. Along with their job responsibilities, they have involved themselves with several groups and put themselves in the position to minister to people in the country where they are currently living. It all keeps them very busy.

Recently violence and persecution toward believers has increased in the areas outside of their city, and it seems to be getting closer and closer to them. From reports we are hearing pastors have been murdered, homes and churches burned and many families displaced as they flea for their lives.

It is a serious situation. One that would not have come to my attention were it not for my parents’ presence in this area.

Right now we are praying for a miracle. For divine intervention on behalf of these believers as they follow the Father’s leading. For peace as they face horrendous atrocities. Wisdom on when to stand and fight and when to run.

Pray with me, friends. Pray for my parents and their safety. Pray for them as they minister to locals in their area who have been personally affected in these attacks.

Pray, believing.

It is so disheartening to hear that there is still such persecution in the world today for followers of Christ. Sometimes I just wish He would come and reveal Himself again RIGHT NOW. BUT, I have some family members that I don't think are coming with us, so I hope for some more time.

KEEP BELIEVING

That is just so difficult to see your parents in harm's way. And to think of all the others affected by this. Wow. Praying. ~kay~

I have very good friends who are here in the states and taking a break for a year. They also usually live in South Asia. I would love to email with you, more about it. I'll point her to your blog and your parents and the link you posted.

I can't imagine what you're feeling right now. This is very scary. I'll be praying for sure. I'll pray before I post this comment as well.
