DAY 7: PRAYER FOR THE PERSECUTED, OPPRESSED, & SUFFERING
1 Pet. 4:12-14; 5:9-10
For the God of all grace to comfort, perfect, and establish the brothers and sisters throughout the world, especially those who are persecuted, oppressed, and suffering deprivation and trials (1 Pet. 4:12-14; 5:9-10).
1 Pet. 4:12-14—Beloved, do not think that the fiery ordeal among you, coming to you for a trial, is strange, as if it were a strange thing happening to you; but inasmuch as you share in the sufferings of Christ, rejoice, so that also at the revelation of His glory you may rejoice exultingly. If you are reproached in the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.
1 Pet. 5:9-10—Him withstand, being firm in your faith, knowing that the same sufferings are being accomplished among your brotherhood in the world. But the God of all grace, He who has called you into His eternal glory in Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself perfect, establish, strengthen, and ground you.
Persevere in prayer.
