Prayer Focus: Freedom of Religion

freedom of religionPlease 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; for wisdom to know what to say and when to share the gospel. Pray for their protection from Satan and evil rulers. Give thanks that we enjoy the privilege of worshiping freely in the United States, and pray for that freedom to 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.
