Lord, have mercy on these your people and their families. Strengthen their hearts. For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope (Jer.29:11). Also read Eph.6:12 For we do not war against flesh and blood, but against rulers, against authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
In 2020, pledge to pray weekly for Christians who share your faith but not your freedom.
