Prayer for John 15:18

“"If the world hates you, understand that it hated Me before it hated you.”

Praying through John 15:18

Heavenly Father, thank You, that Your Word states plainly that the world hated Jesus. I understand that trials and tribulations are common to all men, but that those who follow You will inevitably suffer persecution for righteousness sake. Thank You that You have promised to keep me through the difficulties, dangers, persecution, and pain that all who live godly lives in Christ will suffer. I am so thankful that You intimately understand how I feel when the world hates me, because it hated You first. Help me to keep my eyes fixed on Jesus Who is the hope of my calling, and thank You that Your grace is sufficient for every situation I may have to face in this life. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
