Martyrs Prayers

A Christian martyr is one who is killed for following Christianity. At first, the term applied to Apostles. Once Christians started to undergo persecution, the term came to be applied to those who suffered hardships for their faith. Finally, it was restricted to those who had been killed for their faith. The early Christian period before Constantine I was the "classic" age of martyrdom. A martyr's death was considered a "baptism in blood." The "baptism in blood" provides an even greater picture, showing both the loyalty and love the martyr has for his/her Savior. Early Christians venerated martyrs as powerful intercessors, and their utterances were treasured as inspired specially by the Holy Spirit.
