Lord God Almighty, we lift Your persecuted church to You in prayer. Give to each of one of our brothers and sisters under persecution boldness to proclaim Your Word in the face of persecution. Endue them with the endurance and strength to stand firm under affliction, and deepen their faith. Let them feel Your loving arms around them, giving them comfort and peace in the midst of their sufferings. Bring awareness to those who do not fear persecution. Put it in their hearts to pray and advocate for persecuted believers. Motivate them to support organizations and ministries that care for persecuted Christians and serve the persecuted church. Grow Your church, Lord, and strengthen her amid persecution. In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Ghost, now and forever. Amen.
