? Lord Jesus, please give each of your disciples before, during, and after persecution Your eyes to see, Your ears to hear, and Your heart rejoice in all that You are doing in and through each of Your persecuted children. Do not let them grow weary or become discouraged, but instead lead them to understand and accept persecution is a fertile soil in which You were using to grow your new life in your disciples. Leah’s witness that she would not denounce You, Jesus, has encouraged me. Amen ?
