Prayer for the Persecuted Church

Feb 19, 2017   //   by Admin   //   News

Father God – we come before you acknowledging your sovereignty and goodness and bring before you our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ around the world.

We thank you that they are eternally secure in you because of their trust in the redeeming work of our Lord Jesus.

We pray that you would grant physical protection and deliverance to all those believers suffering around the world and instil in us an urgent and fervent desire to pray for them.

Please also help their lives to reflect the sufficiency of you Grace and that they will know your power is perfected in their weakness.

In the midst of their suffering Lord please give them the courage to endure; the will to choose you even in the face of Ill-treatment and the desire to cling to you and not turn back; in this we pray you would give them a spirit of rejoicing as they share in your sufferings so that they will rejoice all the more when they see Christ revealed in your perfecting of them in you.

We pray fervently Heavenly Father, that given the grave circumstances of many who are living out their faith under persecution, that you would anchor them in you in a way that causes them to desire and love you more than life itself and that because of this they will be able to love those who persecute them and that they will rejoice that they are considered worthy to suffer for your name.

Father, we serve the great I AM the Alpha and Omega; the beginning and the end; the creator, sustainer and redeemer of all. It is with this unshakable confidence that we bring these heartfelt prayers to you knowing that you hear and answer prayer according to your good and perfect will and purpose. We pray all this in the name of your beloved Son and our saviour Jesus. Amen
