Dear Lord Jesus,                                           We come to You right now with urgent requests                                  of heart that You will intervene in behalf of those                                  who are facing severe and devasting persecution.                                    There is much heartbreaking circumstances that are                                   coming against Your people (those who trust in                                   Your Precious Name).  Help them stand strong in the                                   midst of these horrible evils that are coming against                                   them due to their faith in You.  There are those who                                   are hungry for Your Goodness and Mercy with that                                   Great Love that You bestow.  Give them strength to                                   withstand these pressures, all the while You work                                   mightily to deliver them from the hands of the evil                                   ones who hate Your grace.  Give comfort to the broken                                  in heart, that they cling to Your peace.  Give strength to                                   the weak, that they may be strong  in Your hope.                                                        In Jesus Christ Forever and ever,                                                                    Amen and Amen                                                                               Also a prayer for the ones doing the persecuting.                                  Dear Lord Jesus,                                          You and You alone are in control of every situation.                                  It may be hard for us to see any good in bad situations.                                   Actually, there is nothing good about evil.  Deal with the                                  hearts of the most cruel sorts and help them see that what                                  they are doing is wrong, and You alone have the ultimate say                                  and will judge their actions. Help them understand Your Love                                  through what Jesus gave of Himself that they too can have peace                                  with You by acceptance of Your grace to be forgiven and live a                                  new life for You.                                                          In Christ Jesus Alone,                                                                    Amen and Amen                                                                         A prayer for awareness and renewal                                  Dear Jesus, loving Savior,                                         Help us become more aware of how important it is for                                  us to center our whole lives in Your Love.

Give me strength to rely upon You rather                                than worry about every problem.

Make me more aware of                                how frail I am in order to keep my thoughts alert and attentive                                to Your Word.
