Oh Jesus. My heart aches to hear of the things happening there. It’s hard to believe there are people who risk torture and death just for speaking your name. Jesus. Please put an end to the persecution. After all, You have authority over powers and governments. Defend and rescue Your children, Father. And until the day that you rescue them, help them to feel Your presence with them in every moment. Give them courage. Comfort their hearts. And let Your name be glorified…in all of us. Amen.
