Should serve as a sobering reminder of how blessed we are to not have this sort of persecution. On the other hand, I am not sure that being so un-persecuted has been that healthy for us either. Prayer is definitely in order for those who face death every day for the Gospel witness.

As difficult as it would be to endure, a little persecution would probably do the American church a lot of good. It's difficult to know what to hope for.
