Father God we praise you, we love you with all our heart and our neighbor as our self. In all our troubles we remember your Son Jesus and the suffering he went through for our redemption. I pray we always remember this as we consider our own troubles. Give us the strength to bear our afflictions in like manner as Jesus, to love our enemies and forgive them. We believe that our persecution will turn into a mighty triumph. In Jesus name we pray and thank you.
In 2020, pledge to pray weekly for Christians who share your faith but not your freedom.
