    Pray for Christians in Yemen about war food shortage and COVID

    Christians living in Yemen the country just south of Saudi Arabia request prayer as they experience persecution amidst ongoing war food shortages and COVID-19 reports International Christian Concern

    These challenges have created a significant burden of isolation both spiritually and physically The Christian population which once numbered approximately 40000 has been reduced to only a few thousand Most live unaware of each others existence and in great fear of discovery from their Muslim neighbors

    After so many years of hardship many Yemenis are spiritually hungry for answers Pastors working in Yemen report an openness to the Gospel message that encourages them for the future of the church

    Romans 1013-15 says Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved How then can they call on the One they have not believed in And how can they believe in the One of whom they have not heard And how can they hear without someone preaching to them And how can anyone preach unless they are sent As it is written How beautiful are the feet of those who bring Good News

    Sen Hawley vows support for anti-Roe v Wade Supreme nominees

    Republican Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri has vowed to make a Supreme Court nominees opposition toRoe v Wadethe litmus test for confirming him to the nations highest court The 1973 landmark ruling essentially imposed legal abortion across the country reports LifeSiteNewscom

    HAWLEY Roe is an illegitimate decision It has no basis in the constitution None None of the Constitutions specific and enumerated guarantees of privacy even begin to legitimize the taking of innocent human life

    I say today I will vote only for those Supreme Court nominees who have explicitly acknowledged that Roe v Wade was wrongly decided -- the day it was decided I mean on the record before they are nominated

    I do not want private assurances I do not seek them I want evidence that Supreme Court nominees will obey the Constitution and the law I want to see in the record clear acknowledgement that any nominee understands Roe to be the travesty that it is And if that record is not there then I will not support the nomination I dont care who does the nominating

    Hawley explicitly numberedRoe v Wadewith two other wrong and immoral decisions of the Supreme CourtDred Scott v Sandfordon withholding citizenship from black people andPlessy v Fergusonon having racially segregated public facilities

    Please pray Romans 1015 for the Christians in Morocco to continue to be the feet of those whopreach the gospel of peace who bring glad tidings of good things

    In a statement entitled Christ not Caesar is Head of Church A Biblical Case for the Church to Remain Open MacArthur wrote Compliance would be disobedience to our Lords clear commands Government officials have no right to interfere in ecclesiastical matters in a way that undermines or disregards the God-given authority of pastors and elders

    Insofar as government authorities do not attempt to assert ecclesiastical authority or issue orders that forbid our obedience to Gods law their authority is to be obeyed whether we agree with their rulings or not In other words Romans 13 and 1 Peter 2still bind the consciences of individual Christians We are to obey our civil authorities as powers that God Himself has ordained

    MacArthur continued However while civil government is invested with divine authority to rule the state neither of those texts nor any other grants civic rulers jurisdiction over the church God has established three institutions within human society the family the state and the church Each institution has a sphere of authority with jurisdictional limits that must be respected
