Persecuted Church

January 12, 2019

When we read of persecuted Christians, how should we pray for them? Ephesians, a church that was under attack, gives us several pointers: 1) pray to know the hope that God gives (1:18), 2) pray for the strength that comes from the Holy Spirit (3:16), 3) pray that the believer would know how much God loves him (3:17), 4) pray that they would know how to share the gospel (6:19), and pray that they would fearlessly tell others about Jesus (6:20). Look through the other New Testament books (except the gospels) for the word "pray," and you can add to this list.
