Men ought always to pray, and not to faint.

Father we praise You as our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. You have been faithful to comfort us in all our troubles which have been few compared to others. We do pray for those in the body of Christ who are suffering persecution: some are in prison, some have lost their property and many are living in fear of oppression. May Your blessed Holy Spirit give them aid and comfort. These persecuted brothers and sisters are dear to us and we know they are very special to You, shower them with the comforts of Christ. Give them the patience to endure their suffering. Reward them with a deeper understanding of Your grace and a closer fellowship with Your Son; may they experience the power of His resurrection. Some are being crushed and overwhelmed beyond their ability to endure; for these suffering believers, give them hope. Rescue them from their trials and temptations. Bless them with peace and courage. We know their confidence is in You. We lift them up in prayer knowing You will deliver them for their good and Your glory.
