I pray for people being persecuted for the sake of Your Name.
Fortify their strength to endure and not grow weary or lose hope.
I pray You would give them courage never to back down—
never to compromise their faith or testimony in fear for
You are our anchor.
Cause them to remember how great You are
and never fear man or their threats or even death
because You are the Giver of eternal life
through Your Son’s precious blood.
He paid for our peace that we may enjoy it in all circumstances—
even the most heinous of all situations.
Remind them that You will never forsake them.
I pray You would limit the evil that the persecutors can do.
Open their eyes to the sinfulness of their acts
and let them know that You take no pleasure in them.
Make them aware of the hardness of their hearts
and their need to surrender to You.
I pray the persecuted would see their great reward
in advance so their measure of faith will be increased.
In Christ’s Name, Amen.
