Italian Police: Muslim Migrants Threw Christians Overboard

Story: Rome (CNN). Muslims who were among migrants trying to get from Libya to Italy in a boat this week threw 12 fellow passengers overboard -- killing them -- because the 12 were Christians, Italian police said Thursday. 

Prayer:  Father in heaven: even as the apostle Paul faced “danger at sea” (2 Cor. 11:26), these Christ followers, fleeing persecution and the threat of death, tragically had their lives taken at sea, victims of religious hatred. May the Italian authorities bring to justice those responsible for their death, and may these who were faithful to you receive the crown of life. In the name of Messiah Jesus,

Amen.
