Suffered martyrdom in Ethiopia, Killed by a sword wound.
2. Mark (not an apostle, but one of the first missionaries)
Died in Alexandria, Egypt, after being dragged by Horses through the streets until he was dead.
3. Luke (not an apostle, but was Paul's doctor)
Let every plant that my Father has not planted be rooted out in the name of Jesus.
I lay the axe to the root of every evil tree in my life.
Let every ungodly generational taproot be cut and pulled out of my bloodline in the name of Jesus.
Let the roots of wickedness be as rottenness.
I speak to every evil tree to be uprooted and cast into the sea (Luke 17:6).
Let Your holy fire burn up every ungodly root in the name of Jesus (Mal. 4:1).

We put in long hours, we experience a unique form of loneliness and we face difficult decisions every day. It’s easy to get discouraged.
And I think discouragement is one of the most deadly of diseases. Everybody can catch it, and you can catch it more than once. It’s highly contagious and spreads easily and quickly.
