Heavenly Father, please protect and bless all believers suffering persecution around the world, but especially those in Iran during this holy season. Give them strength and increase their faith to persevere in the face of severe trials. May we remember them always and may we be grateful for the freedom to practice our beliefs, which we pray will be theirs some day as well. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
In 2020, pledge to pray weekly for Christians who share your faith but not your freedom.
