Prayer for 1 Peter 4:15

“None of you, however, should suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a meddler.”

Heavenly Father, thank you for the important perspective Peter gives about suffering for righteousness’ sake. As I face the inevitable problems and persecution that are the 'birth-right' of all Christians, in this fallen world, help me to recognise that I am having a share in the sufferings of Christ, Who continues to be despised and rejected by this world - a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. Thank You that He died to pay the price for my sin and broke the power of sin and death in my life. I pray that I may eschew all evil works of darkness and honour His name in ALL I say and do, from this day forward and for evermore - in Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
