For the Lord's Day

Speak, Lord, for Thy servant heareth.
Grant us ears to hear, 
Eyes to see, Wills to obey, 
Hearts to love; 
Then declare what Thou wilt, 
Reveal what Thou wilt, 
Command what Thou wilt, 
Demand what Thou wilt. 
Christina Rossetti, (1830-1894)

For the Lord's Day

“If we refuse to take up our cross and submit to suffering and rejection at the hands of men, we forfeit our fellowship with Christ and have ceased to follow him. But if we lose our lives in his service and carry our cross, we shall find our lives again in the fellowship of the cross with Christ…. To bear the cross proves to be the only way of triumphing over suffering. This is true of all who follow Christ, because it was true for him.”  – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Persecuted Church

For the past year I have been following the case of Gao Zhisheng a Christian Human Rights attorney taken by the ChiCom police. Please pray for him as he has not been seen since February 4, 2009. You can learn more at this link.
