In the United States, we often take for granted our right to practice the religion of our choosing. But throughout history, and even today in many countries, religious freedom is unimportant. Many Christians around the world are still persecuted for simply choosing their faith. Take a moment to meditate on the quality of a life lived in constant fear that others will hurt you because of your religion.
Dear Jesus, please help those who are religiously persecuted to maintain their faith and help them to know and feel your love for them.
