Dear God & Father, I pray for girls & women in the persecuted Church: Protect, provide for, comfort, strengthen, encourage & guide them. May they stay strong in faith, hope & love, committed to Christ. Bring to repentance those who may be mistreating them. Open the hearts of the men in their lives to You; may these men see their value & treat them accordingly. May violence & other human rights abuses against women come to an end through changed hearts if men. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
