This Sunday is Palm Sunday and as we prepare our hearts for Holy Week, Ken and Deb welcome Keep Believing's Ray Pritchard, who will point us to the scriptural accounts and people that are part of this final week of Jesus' earthly life. Ray will talk about his resource, Faces around the Cross, with snapshots into Jesus' journey to the cross and the glorious resurrection. Let's slow down for a closer look at the unfathomable love Jesus demonstrated for us while we were still sinners.
As Christians around the world prepare to celebrate Holy Week, what are some of the concerns and prayer requests for brothers and sisters in Christ who are living in restricted nations? Todd Nettleton from Voice of the Martyrs joins Ken and Deb to share the latest news from the persecuted church along with specific ways we can be praying and encourage those who face daily challenges, persecution, and for some, giving their life because of their faith in Jesus.
Dr. Ray Pritchard (D.Min., Talbot School of Theology) serves as president of Keep Believing Ministries. He has ministered extensively overseas in China, Bolivia, Columbia, Paraguay, Belize, Haiti, Nigeria, Switzerland, Russia, India and Nepal. He is a frequent conference speaker and guest on Christian radio and television talk shows. For 26 years he pastored churches in Los Angeles, Dallas and Chicago.
