Father, I want to lift up all my brothers and sisters in the Lord throughout the whole world, knowing that we are united together in Christ, through time and into eternity. Lord, the fiery trials and severe persecutions that are coming on so many of Your children, in so many parts of the world, are becoming increasingly intense and horrific, and I lift up each and every life that is facing the terrors that wicked men are perpetrating on so many of Your people. Father, each one is a member of Your family and we are all Your children and united together in the Body of Christ.
Look down in pity on all who are facing such fiery trials and persecutions. Help and support, protect and save, comfort and succor, and encourage and strengthen each and every one in their time of trial, and keep them we pray, from the hand of their enemies whose hatred against You is being poured out on so many of Your children.
May they find courage to stand fast in this evil day and may they receive Your sufficient grace in abundant measure. Multiply the grace to endure and may they find encouragement, assurance and hope in the knowledge that however intense their trials and troubles, they are but for a moment, but will produce in them a glory that vastly outweighs the present torment they are enduring, knowing that they are participants in the suffering of their Saviour. This I ask in the precious name of Jesus,
