Jesus, Rescuer, protect our dear brothers and sisters–Your very own dear children, along with us–from bitterness toward their persecutors. Infuse their bodies, minds, and hearts with Your limitless love and strength to remain faithful to You. Bring to their minds Your Word. Brighten their dark times with the light of Your own presence. Open doors for them to share the beautiful truth of Your authority, Your loving power, Your compassion and forgiveness, our hope in You, now & forever!
