I pray today for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are being oppressed, persecuted and abused for their faith just as Jesus was.
Comfort and give courage to Christians in countries such as Nigeria, Eritrea, Pakistan, Egypt and India where many are experiencing physical harm, intimidation and unjust imprisonment at the hands of their oppressors.
Our heavenly Father, thank you for welcoming into your arms all Christian martyrs who have given their lives because they refused to stop sharing the gospel and living out their faith.
Heal the hearts and minds of those who have lost loved ones because of persecution and restore them to full physical and spiritual health.
For those who persecute my brothers and sisters in Christ, I pray that their hearts will be touched by the wonderful faith of those they attack.
I pray also that they will open their hearts to your love.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord,
