Dear God & Father, I pray for women in the persecuted Church: Protect, provide for, comfort, strengthen, encourage & guide them. May they stay strong & united in faith, hope & love, committed to Christ. Sustain them in what situations they’re in. May the men in their lives see & realize their value; may such men repentant of any abusive attitudes. May violence against women end. Uphold & comfort those who are abused, abducted, imprisoned or otherwise oppressed. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
