Beautiful Scars

Sunday is the National Day Of Prayer For The Persecuted Church - will you be an intercessor?

Lord God, we pray for a Your All Sufficient Light to illuminate this city, state, country, and nation. We are all lost without You. Please protect those who are persecuted, do not allow us to safely live here in this place and forget about the suffering, the killings, the martyrs who bare the beautiful scars of testing. Lord, give them peace, comfort the hurting and give them courage to "preach the gospel to the Nations." Your Word will not be silenced, for those you have called to take the harder road, give them courage and peace to run this race. Let them be without fear, because "greater is the Lord who is in us, than he who is in the world." As birth pains are screaming all over this world, Lord remind us that Your hand controls all things. May your peace that surpasses all understanding rest on those persecuted tonight. Give them hope and joy, remind them that we do not forget them, even if the enemy would like them forgotten.

Sunday our family will be praying for the persecuted, to pray for them by name visit here. Consider writing a letter of encouragement to a Christian in prison here.
