Praying For The Persecuted.

Key Verse

“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12).

Text — 2 Timothy 3:10-13


Francis Bacon was quoted as saying, “In taking revenge a man is but even with his enemies; but in passing it over, he is superior.” The Bible tells us how to respond when persecution comes. The new convert in Christ must be prepared ahead of time that he or she must suffer persecution.

Our text highlights the persecution and suffering of the saints. So, they need prayers for God’s intervention and for them to endure temptations and trials of faith. Our Lord Jesus stated plainly, “If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you…” (John 15:20). Christ enjoins the persecuted to pray for their persecutors. In His days, “Hate thine enemy” was a popular concept. Still, He admonished His disciples to love their enemies and bless those who persecuted them. Persecuted saints need prayers from individuals, families, and the Church. Due to persecution, many believers have lost their residential accommodations, and means of livelihood and are living in internally displaced people’s camps (IDPCs) or with friends and relatives in dehumanizing conditions. Both youth and adult believers should without ceasing, intercede for all such ill-treated brethren.


Persecuted saints need prayers


Never surrender to the adversaries.
