Prayer Focus: The Persecuted Church

jesus-cross-smallPlease pray for our brothers and sisters around the world who face persecution, imprisonment, torture, ridicule, and even death because of their faith. Pray that God will sustain and strengthen them and their witness and that God’s Kingdom will continue to grow. Pray for wisdom and courage for pastors and leaders of underground churches to know what, when and how to boldly proclaim the gospel. Pray for their protection against Satan and evil rulers. Give thanks that we enjoy the privilege of practicing our faith here in the United States, and pray that the freedom that we now enjoy will continue. Pray that God will keep us vigilant to do our duty as citizens to protect the freedom of religion that we have and not let it be eroded away by those who want to make religious practice extinct.
