If churches are unwilling to fulfill the biblical imperative to pray, then individual Christians must take up the charge.
Do we need to remind ourselves that for no other reason, Christians should stand as a voice of solidarity with the persecuted church because they are brothers and sisters in Christ?
The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them.
Those espousing biblical principles need not have a head-in-the-sand mentality. We must recognize evil as evil, identify evil as evil and denounce evil as evil.
Denouncing evil is not about bitterness, vengeance or bigotry. The prophet Amos admonishes, “hate evil, love good; establish justice in the gate.”
