Jesus himself testified that a prophet has no honour in his own country (John 4:44; RSV).

So Herod put John in prison (Luke 3:20; NLT).

The soldier beheaded John in the prison (Mark 6:27; NLT).

Then they led him away to be crucified (Mark 15:20; NLT).


May every government
Throughout the world
Accept its most prophetic citizens,

Instead of trying to silence them –
In prison,
Or in death.
