Father God, thank you that we can be aware of how your universal church is hurting. Help us to lift one another up in prayer. I pray for these women, who are vulnerable because of their gender in the countries they live. I pray that they would experience your peace. “Blessed are they who are persecuted for my sake.” They are receiving a blessing for what you have called them to. Give them perseverance and confidence in You. Would they be a light to their families and the world around them. Amen!
