10 ways to pray

Last Sunday was the International Day of Prayer for the persecuted church.

Here are 10 ways to pray our persecuted family will:

1) Sense God’s presence

“...for He Himself has said, I will never leave you or forsake you.” Hebrews‬ ‭13:5‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

2) Know we are praying for them

“…I constantly remember you in my prayers night and day.” ‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭1:3‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

3) Experience God’s comfort

May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal encouragement and good hope by grace, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good work and word.” ‭‭2 Thessalonians‬ ‭2:16-17‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

4) See God open doors to evangelism

At the same time, pray also for us that God may open a door to us for the message, to speak the mystery of the Messiah, for which I am in prison,” ‭‭Colossians‬ ‭4:3‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

5) Boldly share the gospel

And now, Lord, consider their threats, and grant that Your slaves may speak Your message with complete boldness,” ‭‭Acts‬ ‭4:29‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

6) Mature in their faith

We proclaim Him, warning and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone mature in Christ. I labor for this, striving with His strength that works powerfully in me.” ‭‭Colossians‬ ‭1:28-29‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

7) Be granted wisdom in covert ministry work

After many days had passed, the Jews conspired to kill him, but their plot became known to Saul. So they were watching the gates day and night intending to kill him, but his disciples took him by night and lowered him in a large basket through an opening in the wall.” ‭‭Acts‬ ‭9:23-25‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

8) Remain joyful amid suffering

Then they went out from the presence of the Sanhedrin, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to be dishonored on behalf of the Name.” ‭‭Acts‬ ‭5:41‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

9) Forgive and love their persecutors

But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:44‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

10) Be rooted in God’s Word

All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” ‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭3:16-17‬ ‭HCSB‬‬
