God will bring about justice in an unjust world (Psalm 140).
 

Please pray:

  • Increased persecution will result in increased boldness among the believers (Acts 4:29-31).
  • Believers will echo Peter’s sentiment and determine to obey God regardless of what man says (Acts 5:29).
  • Those who oppress Christians may experience repentance and salvation, just as Paul did. (Acts 9:1-19).
  • Everything they have and even their very lives will mean nothing in comparison with the joy of knowing Christ and sharing Him with others (Acts 20:24).
