At Revelation TV we are appalled at the acts of violence directed towards Christians in Sri Lanka. Such hate-filled acts are too awful for words - so much loss of life and hundreds suffering with injury and pain.
For Cyrus Fernando, Revelation TV’s Station Manager, Sri Lanka is home to many of his extended family and he was present for a cousin's wedding a few years back, at one of the hotels where a suicide bomber exploded his bomb. Some of his family friends were in one of the Churches but escaped unhurt.
We are called to pray. God is not blind to the atrocities. He calls us to pray for those who are persecuted. Jesus said: Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.Not an easy prayer to pray, but one the Lord calls us to do so. Last year, on average, ten Christians a day were murdered for refusing to bow their knee to anyone but the Lord God.
