A prayer for Christians like Yalina who are suffering oppression

Lord, we pray for all of our poor and marginalised brothers and sisters who, like Yalina, are really struggling with life today as they are oppressed simply because of their faith in You.

Father, these dear people suffer so much simply because they love You – and now find themselves even more marginalised in the communities where they live due to ongoing coronavirus restrictions.

Dear Lord, thank you that You continue to walk with them as they seek to survive with little or no work, wages or provisions. Help us to help them with prayers and gifts of money which can be used to support them both spiritually and physically.

Father, thank you for their faith in You, bless them and help them survive and to break out of this crushing cycle of oppression and poverty they have to live with.

In Your precious name we pray.
