Project Christmas Tree

   If one part of the body suffers, all the other parts suffer with it; if one part is praised, all the other parts share its happiness.  All of you are Christ's body, and each one is a part of it.

(1 Corinthians 12:26 GNB)

 

Celebrating the birth of our Saviour is indeed a time where the body of Christ unites as we share in the joy, the pain, the challenges and the victories of one another.   For the body to “share” is not an option, it is natural.  Praying for the Persecuted Church during  this festive season is not only a normal Biblical response but also a normal bodily function. 

 

INcontext Ministries has compiled a list of 26 names of Christians who are currently facing imprisonment and persecution.  These names represent thousands who daily display the cross of Jesus and have been placed on specially designed Prayer Cards to assist prayer partners to pray on a daily basis for these modern-day heroes of faith. 

 

The Prayer Cards have been designed in such a way that it can be displayed on a tree to serve as a reminder during this festive season that Christ is still being displayed by those who carry His cross.  The round disks (CD size) are printed on both sides in colour with information on persecuted Christians  and the countries they live in.  These 26 Cards will provide one name to pray for every day of the month, not only for the month of December but throughout the year.

 

Cost:

·         1 -5 Packs of 30 cards:            R30.00 per pack

·         5 - 10 Packs                              R25.00 per pack

A Christmas Prayer

by Robert Louis Stevenson

 

 

Loving Father,
Help us remember the birth of Jesus,
that we may share in the song of the angels,
the gladness of the shepherds,
and worship of the wise men.

May the Christmas morning
make us happy to be thy children,
and Christmas evening bring us to our beds
with grateful thoughts,
forgiving and forgiven,
for Jesus’ sake.

Amen.
