Lord I thank you for these brave men and women who are going through horrendous persecution to serve you and follow you. I pray they be an influence to others who read this post in a positive manner. I pray that you give them strength only you can provide and let them be encouraged. Let them draw inspiration and encouragement from the book of philippians where Paul talked about being imprisoned for the same reasons. Thank you Lord for this opportunity to pray for them in Jesus name amen.
