Praying for Persecuted Christians
A report ordered by Jeremy Hunt, Foreign Secretary, finds that Christianity is the most persecuted religion.. Saudi Arabia strictly limits all expressions of Christianity including public worship, with regular crackdowns on private services. Last December, 114 Christians were arrested in Iran with court cases left pending as a form of intimidation. In Turkey President Erdogan says Christians are not real Turks. In China many restrictions apply.
The following is from a prayer of John D Searle, a former Minister (found on Day 21 of the 2018/9 "Prayer Handbook").
God of love and compassion,
We remember Christians who are interrogated, tortured and murdered for their faith in Christ. We pray for others who are on trial, falsely accused or sentenced to years of forced labour or imprisonment.
Be with them in their suffering, and show us what we can do to change the hearts and minds of those who have no regard for human life.
