“A Prayer For The Persecuted”

March 8, 2022

Father, we pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters as they work to advance the gospel despite growing opposition. Grant them endurance for the days ahead that will help to make them “strong and very courageous” as mentioned in the Bible. Paul asked fellow believers to “pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.” We also say the same prayer for those who are presently suffering for their faith, that they will be fearless and declare the gospel message no matter the opposition they face. And may the presence of the comforting Holy Spirit be as an anesthetic to their pain as our dear Brother Jesse Dourte often prayed. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

See Ephesians 6:19-20
