Beloved Prayers: A Martyrs’ Cross Prayer Book for the Persecuted
At first glance, this little prayer book: A Martyrs’ Cross Prayer Book for the Persecuted may look like a book of prayers to pray for the persecuted body of Jesus. And if that’s what you thought, you’re correct–it is. However, it is also a prayer book intended for all who hear the call to “Come Away,” to seek the presence and communion of the King of the Universe.
Prayer is the home of the burning heart. Here we find that we are known, seen, understood, allowed, and called. We are called to intimacy and intercession, but it doesn’t end there, prayer upends the whole of our lives, in the best of ways. Our work is simply to do our part: to come. We come before our Father in heaven with intent, and we learn to call this prayer.
This book, Beloved Prayers: A Martyrs’ Cross Prayer Book for the Persecuted has been created to come alongside followers of Jesus wherever this finds you. You are not alone. Through our prayers and living faithfully together the message of Jesus continues to spread a great light. So, come away…
