FF3: Forgiveness

Faith Filled Friday (F3):

Faith-Filled Friday: A Call for Mercy

"Our Christ sacrificed His life on the cross for our sins. . ." - © 2011 The Voice of the Martyrs

Faith-Filled Fridays is when we highlight either devotionals, victories, persecutions of the saints, or other aspects of the Christian faith.

Asia Bibi, a wife and mother, used these words to defend her faith against mocking co-workers who tried to make her convert to Islam. She was later convicted of blasphemy and sentenced to death.

In Pakistan, more than 150,000 Christians have signed a petition demanding justice for persecution victims, including Asia Bibi. Now you can join with The Voice of the Martyrs and our Pakistani brothers and sisters in a call for mercy. We hope to gather 1 million signatures on behalf of our sister Asia, who now sits in prison awaiting the Lahore High Court’s ruling on her appeal.

Invite your friends to visit www.CallForMercy.com and add their names to the petition as well. VOM will deliver the petition, along with the list of signers, to the Pakistani Embassy in Washington DC
