Prayer for those who persecute you

If you are facing any kind of persecution, turn to God for help. No matter how difficult the situation, your prayers make a difference. God hears your prayer, and he helps you deal with any aggression. Whether it’s a miracle or just to give you strength, the Lord will not abandon you. These situations almost never end quickly, so rest upon the Word of God.

This doesn’t mean there is any excuse for abuse. You don’t have to tolerate an abusive relationship. Still, be careful to avoid any desire for vengeance. Seek the Spirit’s guide in how to respond. Also, talk to a trusted spiritual guide or friend about these things.

If you are being persecuted for your faith, remain strong… and rejoice! Today, it can be harder than ever to follow Christ. If you stay faithful, he will show you how.
