God, I pray for the believers in the Middle East. I pray that they feel encouraged and will feel joy in persecution and trial. I pray that you restore the Christian communities and the local church. God, I thank you for the lives you have moved in and I pray that you comfort those families in times of trial. God, I pray that the church rise up and the nation will see the mighty grace of God. Lord, draw people to the gospel and life of Jesus. Lord I pray for your spirit to move! God, I praise you for the work you have done and will continue to do. Remind the families of their hope is found in Christ alone.
