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. Give them wisdom in whatever hardships they may face. Bring those who may mistreat them to repentance. May the men in their lives appreciate their value & treat them accordingly. May violence & human rights abuses of girls & women end. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
