Prayers from God's people
Father, I thank you for these persecuted. They remind me every day that my faith is something that is often taken for granted. That not everyone can walk into a church and worship the name of our Lord Jesus without fearing death.
I pray that all of you who face persecution may keep the words of 1 Peter 4:16 in their hearts: "However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed but praise God that you bear that name."
Father, I come in Jesus Name. My family and I lift up to you all of our brothers and sisters in Christ who are suffering because they bear Your name, the Name above every name. Father, You know every single one of Your children: You know their sacrifice, You see their tears and suffering, You know their every struggle and heartache, You know the desire of their heart. Father, nothing escapes Your notice. You know their oppressors as well and see all that occurs. Father God, I ask in Jesus Name, that You would comfort, strengthen and protect each one of Your children. Father please bless and help each one to forgive, to continue in faith, to abide in You. Please Father carry each one. Thank You that You will reward abundantly all who suffer for Your Name's sake. Thank You that no one can snatch Your children from Your hand. Thank You that You care and love intimately and with everlasting love. Praise Your Name, Father God. In Jesus Name, amen.
Father in Heaven, I lift up those who are being persecuted for Your sake and also for those who are ministering to them and others by their works and prayers. Guide and direct them O Mighty God in all they say and do and give them favor with those who would seek to do them harm. God bless them Lord. amen.
Dear Brothers and Sisters-in-Christ in the Bethel Memorial Methodist Church in Quetta, Pakistan,
May our Lord protect you from your enemies and comfort you in the loss of life from the recent ISIS attack on your church. May he heal those wounded both in heart and in body from the hatred of the Muslims. May his love guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
With his love,
MAY OUR BLESSED LORD JESUS CHRIST FILL YOU SO FULL TO OVERFLOWING WITH THE POWER AND PRESENCE OF HOLY SPIRIT so that the Heavens and Earth will not be able to contain YOUR JOY.
All your brothers and sisters World wide will be Joining with YOU in WORSHIP and PRAISE of our ALMIGHTY KING JESUS!
Dear brother in Christ,
Your worship song is heard in heaven and on earth with praise to our Lord and Saviour. From the first posting of your arrest, the Lord has put you on my heart and I have continued to pray for you. May the prayers of all of us, His people be like incense to our Heavenly Father of compassion and miracle working power. Also for those in prison authority in Turkey, that they be touched with God's love and compassion.
Almighty Father, I pray for comfort for the spouses and children of our imprisoned brothers and sisters. May the children not doubt your goodness but may they seek hope, love and comfort in You. May the spouses find strength in You to continue to trust in You and raise their children with wisdom. And may your Presence comfort our brothers and sisters in prison, shining through them as a light for all to see. May your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth, in prison, in every home and family, and all around the world, as it is in Heaven!
As we gather tonight, sisters in Christ, we thank our living God for reigning on His throne. We trust His omnipresence and call on Him to make Himself known to our Brother Pastor Andrew Brunson in Turkish prison. Forgive us for putting daily busyness before taking time for our brothers and sisters being persecuted. Father have mercy on us, hear our prayer to uplift Andrew's physical body that he be given food and have strength in his provisions and every Word that comes form the mouth of God. We use the Scriptures provided here to edify our brother in this time of strain and separation form the Body of believers and his family. We rest in You and claim our hope is in you, may our brother continue to hope in Jesus name! Lord Jesus, you waste this not, for Your Kingdom expands as His sufferings are not in vain. In Jesus name, amen.
Lord, cause the persecuted to lift their eyes to the the hills from where their help comes from. As they wait upon you Lord, strengthen them and give them grace to endure. Father, keep them safe in the secret of your presence from the violent man who seek to destroy their lives. As they continue to hope in you, increase their faith. On that faithful day you shall say to them, "well done good and faithful servant".
Father You know all things, You have all wisdom, power and goodness. You know the suffering of these dear to You. Strengthen each one through Your word, through Your Spirit, and through Your loving comfort, and through prayer for these dear ones. Help these to remain steadfast, and to cling to You. Your promise is to never leave them and You will never forsake them.
May the Good of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob be with you as you face persecution for your faith in Christ. Remember his promise that he will never leave you or forsake you. So as you are incarcerated we pray that God will open the jail cells just like what he did for his disciples. You will always be in my prayers. Ok
Thank you that you are the God who sees us, who is not far from us but is very near. I pray that the nearness of your presence would be felt and known by all of your children who are suffering persecution for their faith in you. By your power and strength I pray that you would protect and guard them against all evil and that you would set their minds and heart on you, the source of life to all who believe. Would you bring them into your fullness of joy today, knowing that they have a treasure that will not perish, a treasure that cannot be stolen for them, but one that awaits them in the heavenly realms. Jesus, Prince of peace, cover their hearts and their minds, remind them constantly that their lives are hidden with you in God. Help them to trust you in all circumstances that their hope and peace would overflow despite their circumstance. Thank you that with you all things are possible and you will not put to shame those who hope in your name, you are a good father and all your ways towards us are loving kindness.
I pray that you would heal and bind up the wounds of the captives and that you would restore the broken and free the prisoners of their most inner prisons. Be our light and salt oh Lord, tend our wounds and establish our hearts firmly in your heart. May we be filled with light, so that our eyes see out of your light. May your love move us and may it overflow for even those who hate us, may your Spirit empower us to love those who we do not currently love and give us the strength to surrender our bitterness to you and receive your forgiveness for those who have wronged us. Be our salvation Lord, lead us in your light, free our hearts and mind from every hindrance and let us run the race set out before us with all endurance. You are our life of Lord and in you is life everlasting. Amen
Though dark be the time, you are the Light of the world. Lord Jesus Christ, my Redeemer, liveth!
I thank you dear faithful Lord Jesus, our Holy God and Savior, for the privilege of interceding for your children who are suffering, whether physical pain or grief, confusion, perplexity, grief, discouragement, temptation or deception.
Strengthen them, my Father. More than this, beloved and powerful Lord and Holy Counsellor, help them to seek your face, to forgive and to share your message of grace to all who will come to Him in repentance.
Provide your children practical help, comfort and protect us. Increase our faith, Lord God Almighty, to prevail and remain at all times in your Will.
May your Kingdom come swiftly, so we may all be joined in You, our blessed Hope.
Help us to see beyond our physical sight, to have the confidence that your glorious angels do battle our foe, perhaps if it is Your Will, we may have a marvellous vision of your golden city, even to the doorway of the particular place you have prepared for each one of us.
May all hearts soar to know of your splendor.
As my throat is hot and my eyes welled up with tears I pray for Your mighty outstretched arms to hold and comfort our brothers and sisters in this war for souls. I pray for strength and sound mind for those who are in the fire and for those who are contemplating to walk out of their security. I lift up each and every man, woman, and child who are being persecuted in your names sake. I pray for you to send your angels to encamp around them. I pray your blood over their lives and to fill their hearts with love for their persecutors that only you can give. I pray for your will Lord as it is in heaven and on earth. I pray that you stir the hearts of those around the world with conviction and passion for You Lord and the knowledge of how to pray and support those who are being persecuted in your name Jesus. Father God, empower these workers of the great commission to reap 1000 times what they sow. Blind the eyes of evil just how you have done in the past so that your work will prevail! We love you in Christ, all my brothers and sisters. Amen
I thank you Lord that the gates of hell cannot prevail against Your church. I thank you that Your church will continue to grow and thrive in areas where Your sons and daughters are so severely persecuted and abused. Father, in Yeshua's mighty name I claim the promise of Psalm 91 upon our brothers and sisters in Christ, and that Your grace will be all sufficient for them. I pray that in areas where they are imprisoned that their examples of courage, peace and love will be a conduit for the gospel to be preached, that their persecutors will have a Damascus Road experience of the living Christ, Who is the only way and truth and life. In His Name, amen
Our Heavenly Father, I pray for my brothers and sisters in Christ who are living in countries where persecution of believers is taking place. I pray that your peace and comfort would be real in their lives. I pray that the eyes of their persecutors would be opened to the gospel and that their hearts would be broken and changed by the power of the Holy Spirit. God, may the power of the gospel go forth and shine brightly in those places where spiritual darkness is real. I pray for our own Country Canada as well and for our leaders that they would come to recognize and reverence God. Amen
Father God, bless Your all those who are under persecution. May You be a wall of fire around them, but may they know in their hearts that You are with them as they are walking through the fires! May they know that You are for them and not against them, that You are with them wherever they are, You see them and You watch over them!
Bless them richly with their daily bread and may they see Your mercies are new every morning!
Lifting you up dear brothers and sisters as you serve the Lord in circumstances of persecution. You are not forgotten! I pray God's full armor on you so that you can stand firm.
God is for you, He will carry you. May you shine brightly like stars as you follow our Lord and look to Him to be your Provider, your Protector, your Defender.
