Dear Father, thank You for Your awesome and selfless love for us in Christ Jesus our Lord. I am so thankful for prayer and that You hear Your children when they call. I pray for Your people in these places where they are so persecuted. I pray for their protection and that they would be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. I pray for their needs and for strength and courage for them to keep reaching out to others with the gospel and enduring and fighting the good fight of faith. I pray for comfort and peace for them and that they would be received in love and peace by the people around them. I love You Father and Lord Jesus and thank You again for hearing me. In the precious name of Jesus amen.
Romans 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
