The persecuted church in other lands is brought to our attention at church, through magazines and at mission conferences. We are called on by them to pray daily and lift their burdens to the Lord on a regular basis. Paul reminded the churches to remember him in his chains and to pray for him. But it did not deter him from ministry. Listed in chapter four Paul numbers several people who continue to minister with him in dangerous situations even though he is in prison. Still today we read and hear of those who are in prison for their beliefs and they call on us to pray for them and for their co-workers in the faith on a daily basis.
