Let's be praying for this woman, Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, in Sudan saints! Please! This is important as many others besides her also will be put to death, essentially martyred, for having faith in Christ Jesus.
1 Peter 2:6-8 says: (6) Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. (7) Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, (8) And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed."
So many people around the world are offended at Christ being praised and worshiped. Jesus said, in Matthew 10:32-33, "(32) Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. (33) But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven."
Pray that Meriam, and the many, many others like her, will continue to keep her Christian faith in the midst of severe persecution. She was raised as a Christian, but under Muslim Sharia Law, if her father was a Muslim then she by default is also a Muslim. But it gets complicated because she married a Christian man who has U.S. citizenship. Because she refused to renounce her Christian faith in a Sudanese court, she was given the death penalty.
If the UN and Sudans leaders stand up and put enough pressure on its government, they just might me able to get the court that dished out the death penalty ruling to reverse it, especially since the woman is currently 8 months pregnant and will need to nurse the child for quite some time. Also pray for her Christian husband. He feels so helpless. Pray that God would give him such a great peace and a rest that truly surpasses all understanding. No matter what happens, I believe that when it's all said and done, God will get the glory.
There is a village in Nicaragua filled with hunger and despair and fear. A village where the children sift through the local dump looking for something – anything to eat. A village where people live in fear of dying from disease and starvation.
On Saturday April 5th, we have an opportunity to help these children and their families.
My church, New Horizon Church, in partnership with Servants With a Heart, will host a food packing event where we hope to provide 100,000 meals – enough food to feed this village for an entire year. We can’t do this without hundreds of volunteers. It’s not back-breaking work. The food consists of rice, dried vegetables, soy protein and vitamins. Easy to transport, cook and digest.

Could Assad be playing Russia and U.S. off each other to buy more time for himself as more and more people die on the grounds of Syria? But then again Assad would not want to bite the hand that feeds him, that is, the hand of Putin. Meanwhile.... The authority of the U.S. in international affairs is deeply in question right now. Some people think Obama cannot talk to America and the rest of the international players as a Commander-in-Chief. To some he seemed indecisive at first (do we use diplomacy or do we strike Syria?... if diplomacy fails then we'll use force?) Then Russia comes along and says "We are the nation that has the plan for dealing with Syria" ... "Peace talks" involving the United Nations are going on, but we all know that at some point if Syria continues to do whatever it's been doing, force will have to be implemented. ... And Israel is just watching and readying itself as its enemies gear up for what will soon be a coming war. Watch by 2014 something MAJOR will have happened, I promise you. We who are believers in Christ just need to watch and pray... watch and pray as certain events unfold.
