Important new release
Take a second and picture a typical day in the life of your home. The morning might be rushed getting everyone out the door to school and work. You have a family dinner in the kitchen where you discuss the day and encourage each other. You share a prayer time with your kids or parents as you all head off to bed. You thank God as you put your head on the pillow for another good, safe day.
Now, take that picture and place it in Syria.
As you tell your spouse goodbye for the day, you cover them in prayer for their safety and that your family could go one more day without any threats or harm. You walk your children to school and you look around to see who might be following you. You run into a market for one or two things and rush home. As you come around the corner you see it.
ISIS has found you and they know you are a Christian.
You and your family have talked about this day for years. How will you choose to respond to the only three options ISIS gives you? Will you pay the high tax? Will you renounce Christianity within 24 hours and claim Islam? Or will you choose to die?
This scene plays out every day in homes across the Middle East. The N on the door tells the community that you are a follower of the Nazarene and are therefore a marked person.
If you’re like me, you might see the news and feel helpless as a fellow Christian. What can I do for them from the other side of the world?
That’s where the new project from David C Cook in conjunction with Voice of the Martyrs comes in.
The I am N project consists of several pieces that will educate and equip us to pray for our brothers and sisters. The main trade book shares stories of Christians who face Islamic extremism every day. Their stories can be hard to read at times but you will be inspired by their unwavering faith. Check out the first chapter here.
The I am N Devotional invites readers to deepen their own faith and commitment to Christ. Using the stories from the Middle East, scripture, and a prayer prompt, readers will learn to be actively involved in praying for Christians around the world.
We have a LifeWay exclusive 30 day prayer guide that will give you a daily prayer to lift up on behalf of our brothers and sisters.
There is also an I am N study program that will be perfect for small group use.
LifeWay is excited to present you resources that will enable all of us to help fight the terrorism that is going on in the Middle East. I believe that the power of prayer is one of the strongest weapons we have. Let’s all help to fight this war on our knees and intercede for the persecuted church.
Save the date: March 26
