Prayer Point: Praying for the Persecuted
Scripture Reading: II Corinthians 12:9-10
2Co 12:9-10 NIV But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. (10) That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Notes: Pray for the persecuted Christ followers around the world. Pray that they would encounter the sufficiency of God’s grace like never before. Pray that persecutors would stop and accept Jesus like Saul did. Ask God to tear down the systems, regimes, empires, and beliefs that allow this persecution to exist.
Mat 6:9-13 NASB “Pray, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. (10) ‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. (11) ‘Give us this day our daily bread. (12) ‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. (13) ‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’
