This is the truth and the vision we must hold onto. The wicked and unjust do NOT win.
Rather...”Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.
The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
for the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
(Psa 1:1–6 ESVi)
Keep praying Martyrs’ Cross Family, we’re with you.
It’s because of this man that I have the life that I have. It’s because of this man that I have an array of friends that are all different nationalities, races, shapes, and sizes. It’s because of this man that I’m able to work in in an environment where I am seen as an equal. Where my thoughts and opinions matter. Where I am truly valued for my character and not judged because of my color. It’s because of this man that I don’t have to drink from a separate fountain or live in a colored/white only society. Thank you Martin Luther King Jr. for risking your life and answering God’s call for justice!
“There are two ways of keeping warm on a cold night. You can wear a fur coat or light a fire. Wear a fur coat and you warm only yourself. Light a fire and you warm others. We are supposed to a light fire.”-Jonathan Sacks
Remembering Martin Luther King Jr.’s fire today. How can we keep it burning?
If you know about the persecution of God’s family around the world then you probably want to pray for them. ..
If you are human then you probably forget at times and would benefit from having a community to pray with. ..
That is what The Martyrs’ Cross Family is all about. We remember the persecuted in prayer and deed. ..
Some of us are wearing the pendant around our neck, some of us are wearing it around our heart—all of us care deeply and want to pray for those suffering as well as for the persecutors. ..
On Sunday nights we send out a prayer for us all to join in, you can read it word for word or simply see it and use it as a reminder and encouragement to stop and pray. ..
We’re pausing to place our eyes on the beauty and truth of God. We’re remembering our persecuted family together. Join us and sign up (completely free) through link @themartyrscross Thank you!
