A Prayer For The Persecuted

“Father, like the seven churches in Revelation, we too have strengths and weaknesses, in which we receive Your commendation and need Your correction.  We want to be so yielded to Christ that we live for Him and are willing to die for Him.  We pray for our brothers and sisters who are currently facing all kinds of torment, suffering, and loss as they stand firm in the faith.  We pray that the Good News of Christ is reaching even more due to the persecuted church just as it has throughout the centuries.  Those who work the hardest to dispense with the Gospel are now exposed to it through the bold witness of those being imprisoned and persecuted.   Bibles, freedom, and personal rights may be withheld, but no ungodly official is able to quench Your Spirit that is very much alive in the hearts of those being persecuted for their faith.  The Word of God concealed in their hearts gives them power from on high to overpower the authority of sinful man. Encourage our brothers and sisters as they endure for the sake of Christ.  Prompt us by Your Holy Spirit to be faithful in prayer for them, that they will be released from their oppressors, and that their oppressors will come to faith.  In the name of Jesus we pray.  Amen.”
