Boldness: Facing Persecution
The truth of Jesus Christ often goes against the culture and beliefs of the people. It can take great courage to speak the truth of Christ to those who hate what He stands for.
Sometimes, following Jesus means facing persecution and dangers to proclaim who He is. Please ask God to give courage to those who minister for His name's sake.
Ro 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
Father, You alone are God and there is no one else like You. The earth is Yours and everything in it, the World and all who live in it. Let Your mighty hand of grace and mercy be extended to bless Your servants.
I pray for Your servants
, Lord, and I ask that You would bless them with courage to stand firm in the face of persecution. Strengthen their heart Lord with Your presence and remind them that no trouble, persecution or danger can separate them from Your love. In Your authority, Lord Jesus, I bind the spirits of darkness that are resisting Your servants
today. I cancel the plans they have made to hinder the work of the Gospel, and hold Your servants
back from proclaiming Christ as Lord.
