In 1 Peter chapter 4 and verse 13 the Apostle Peter exhorts us to, “rejoice to the extent that we become partakers of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, that we also may be glad with exceeding joy.”
Now one of the ways that we partake of Christ’s sufferings is to begin to pray for fellow believers in other countries who are suffering unspeakable hardship because of their faith in Christ. For example, in North Korea, it is reported that our brothers and sisters in the Lord are being imprisoned, they are abused, beaten, raped and starved for the stated crime of being a Christian.
The Bible tells us that when their deliverance comes, because of our prayer, we will be glad with them with exceeding joy.
Remember, it’s time to pray!
