Heavenly Father, we lift up before You the many thousands of Christians around the world who are being cruelly persecuted, abused, tortured and killed and there is little or no outcry about the atrocities that are been perpetrated against so many world-wide. Father, we pray for Your protection from the psychological exhaustion and emotional fear that so many are going through, and we pray that Your Holy Spirit would draw so close to them and protect them. Give them the spiritual strength to endure under such inhumane regimes.
Guard and guide them we pray. Provide for them and empower them to know and experience the love of God, and give them the strength to remain firm in the faith. Enable them we pray, to be fruitful witnesses of the love of Christ, despite the evils and atrocities that are being perpetrated against them. And Father, we ask that they would so grow in grace that they may be able to forgive their persecutors and demonstrate the love of Christ towards those who are dead in their trespasses and sins.
May Your mighty hand of protection be upon all that are suffering in this manner and give them the fixed assurance that God will right every wrong in His own time and in His own way. In Jesus' name we pray,
