Pentecostals Call for Prayer

Posted by in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

The leaders of six Pentecostal denominations met in Los Angeles this week and jointly agreed to ask those who attend their churches to pray for the persecuted church. The top elected representatives of The General Council of the Assemblies of God, International Pentecostal Holiness Church, International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, Church of God in Christ, Open Bible Churches, and Church of God came together to discuss, among other topics, the mass executions of Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya last week.

“The recent beheading of 21 Egyptian Christians is a reminder to the body of Christ that even in the 21st century Christians are being martyred,” says Dr. Mark L. Williams, Presiding Bishop of the Church of God-Cleveland,TN. “Please set aside time this Sunday and/or subsequent Sundays to pray for believers all over the world who are facing persecution, discrimination, marginalization, and even death.”
