Abba, You see Your children who are being persecuted for the sake of the gospel of Christ. You hear their cries. You know them by name. They are Your children. You will not leave them or forsake them. I pray they experience Your very presence and power as they share the love of Christ with those who do not yet believe. Empower them by Your Holy Spirit to do mighty works that can only be attributed to You. Bring their families to faith in Christ. Use them for Your glory!
