a deep uneasiness

The past couple of weeks I've had a very deep uneasiness in my soul.

It of course is God stirring me.

I feel haunted by the knowledge of fellow believers being tortured and killed because of their beliefs. The reports of the atrocities seem to increase each day.

Twice I woke up crying for them - begging the Lord to intervene and shake the very walls of the prisons that surround them.  It takes me into a time of prayer and deep into a feeling of helplessness to change anything - to make any difference in this regard.  So I have to assume it's prayer that God is calling me to.

But I'm not sure, is there something physically I am to do Lord?   Is it just a reminder to pray continuously?

It feels wrong to be here surrounded by endless possibilities and wealth, while their children are being taken away, couples are being separated and abused and eventually killed.

Even now I can hardly write because of the sorrow I feel for them.

I do believe when the Lord allows us to suffer for His name sake it is an honor,  still I wish there was a way I could help them.

Please pray for the millions of people living in terror around the world.  May they feel the Creator of the Universe close to them today... and may we constantly ask - "what can I do Lord?"
