A Prayer For Persecuted Christians

Father, You are my light and my salvation so why should I be afraid?  You protect me from danger so why should I be nervous? When evil people seek to destroy me; when my enemies attack me, they will stumble and fall at Your command.  Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will be steadfast.  Even if they attack me, I remain confident that You are watching over me.  My heart’s desire is to be in Your presence where I praise You by meditating on Your truths. I find comfort in Your merciful provisions.  In the day of trouble You will keep me safe.  You will hide me in the shelter of Your tabernacle and set me high upon a rock.  Then I will hold my head high, above my enemies who surround me.  Through it all I am confident of this:  I will see the goodness of the Lord.  Help me to wait for You, Lord, to be strong and take heart, as I wait for You. I will see Your mighty hand of provision here on this side or I will view You in all Your majesty on the other side where You reign supreme.
