Muslim- "Jesus Is Proud of You"

[225] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Algerian Christians.

As authorities in Algeria move to shut down long-established churches, a young Muslim man left a surprising note on the door of one of the sealed church buildings. The note included these words of encouragement: “To close a church is something unacceptable and is a pathetic superstition. It is for this reason that I stand with you in your noble and just fight. I applaud each Christian for being committed to their religion since being a Christian in our society requires sacrifices. You are Christians even though society scorns you, even though sometimes your family does too. I am sure that Jesus is proud of you because at times you must lay aside the things that are important to you in order to follow his path. All my respect for all of you.” Thank God that the testimonies of Algerian Christians are being witnessed by local Muslims. Pray that Algerian Christians will remain strong in faith despite the authorities’ campaign to close churches.

Jesus tell us in Matthew 5:11 how blessed are those who are persecuted because of Him. LORD I pray for the people of Algeria to continue to draw closer to Jesus and rely on Him and His strength.
