Dear Lord, Thank you so much for answering the continued and consistent prayers of countless Christians around the world! We have not given up on our brothers and sisters in Christ who have taken the “beating” for the rest of us so that the Gospel may be spread. Thank you that many are now able to return home and rebuild and that they have kept their faith in You despite the severe persecution. Keep giving them the hope and courage they need. In Jesus’ Name. We praise You, Lord!
