How to Pray for Persecuted Christians
The Bible is our best guide for knowing how to pray for persecuted brothers and sisters. Here are some specific things you can pray for:
Pray God will give them the right words and that they will fearlessly make Christ known. (Ephesians 6:19-20; Colossians 4:2-4)
Pray they will remember that persecution is part of God’s will for them. (Philippians 1:29)
Pray they will know God's sufficient grace and His power perfected in their weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)
