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 situations each of them faces. Bring those who may mistreat them to repentance. May the men in their lives appreciate them at their full value. May violence & other human rights abuses of girls & women end. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
