What is The Martyrs’ Cross?
It is the prayer tool pictured below that we WEAR around our necks to remember persecuted followers of Jesus, and their persecutors—around the world—in prayer and loving action.
Some people call it jewelry, and that’s alright, but to us—it’s more. To us, it’s a WAY. The Martyrs’ Cross is a message we wear around our hearts and minds.
Worn in over 26 nations by believers in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who are giving up all to know Him, The Martyrs’ Cross is worn as a symbol of remembrance and solidarity. Our brothers message is clear: we will not forget, we will pray. And they are praying for us too.
The Martyrs’ Cross is also a family. We are a community of love and prayer.
By God’s grace and with a commitment to believing in His faithfulness:
We fight for awareness for all of us in the midst of a culture of distraction. When life gets crushing, we will remember how Jesus suffered and as 1 Peter 4:13 says “be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner.”

“We never know how God will answer our prayers, but we can expect that He will get us involved in His plan for the answer. If we are true intercessors, we must be ready to take part in God’s work on behalf of the people for whom we pray.” ― Corrie ten Boom
“Prayer makes your heart bigger, until it is capable of containing the gift of God himself. Prayer begets faith, faith begets love, and love begets service on behalf of the poor.” ― Mother Teresa
“Come!” say the Spirit and the Bride.
Whoever hears, echo, “Come!”
Is anyone thirsty? Come!
All who will, come and drink,
Drink freely of the Water of Life!
“As the pastor’s wife, I have often told youngsters a story of the boy who stood on the shore and waved to a ship at sea. A man beside him said, ‘Don’t be silly. The steamer will not change it’s course because you wave.’ But the ship turned, came to shore and picked up the boy. From the bridge he shouted, ‘Sir, I’m not a fool. The captain is my father!’ We also know that he who steers the universe on its course is our Father and that He hears our prayers.”

“Let us make revolutionists and terrorists a matter of prayerful concern, asking that they may use their energies in the service of peaceful reforms.”
