Our Father who loves us and gave Himself for us, we pray for our brothers and sisters around the world who are persecuted for believing in your Name and sharing it with those they love. WE pray in the Name of Jesus that you will meet their every need. You see and know each one and their individual suffering and circumstances. You are right there beside them suffering with them, Lord. Strengthen and uphold them and give them health. May your great power expand your Church in all areas.
