Almighty Father I praise your Holy name. Lord I thank you for life, for your protection and your love. Lord I pray for my brothers and sisters in Iran and other parts of the Middle East who are being persecuted and imprisoned for righteousness sake. I ask Lord that you continue to protect them. Even though these may be tough times for them, may they experience your love and your peace as only you can give. Holy Spirit do only what you can do in their lives. In Jesus name. Amen.
