Prayer for Persecuted Christians Throughout the World
Prayer for Persecuted Christians
Thank you for the gift of our faith.
Thank you for coming to earth, Jesus, to teach us more about You
and show us the way to get to Heaven.
As you sent Your Apostles out two by two to teach the world about You,
most of them were martyred.
They chose to die rather than give up their faith and deny You.
Today many Christians around the world are suffering persecution for their faith in You.
Lord, please give them strength to endure their suffering
and to even die as martyrs.
Protect them from death, if possible,
and help them to keep their faith in You burning and shining brightly.
May their example of faithfulness to and belief in You
lead others to believe in You or strengthen their belief in You.
Lord, protect Your Church around the world
and protect all who suffer and are persecuted for their faith in big and small ways.
May all of Your people have a steadfast faith and hope in You
no matter what is going on in their lives and in the world.
Help us to remember that we are not of the world although we live in the world.
Lord, please protect, encourage, and strengthen Your people
who are being persecuted for their faith in You.
May they remain steadfast and unwavering in their faith at all times.
May their eyes behold You in Your majesty when they reach Heaven
and hear Your voice, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”

Prayer for Persecuted Christians is a prayer for those who are suffering persecution in the world. Some people are persecuted in small ways and others’ lives are at risk for living and practicing their faith. Persecution of Christians did not end long ago; it is still happening today in the world. We need to remember to pray for those who are persecuted for their faith in Jesus. We also can pray for ourselves, asking God for strength to remain steadfast in our own faith in Him no matter what persecutions we may face. The quote in the last line of the prayer is from Matthew 25:21.
The Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus: How to Practice the Sacred Heart Devotion by Rev. John Croiset shares the message Jesus gave to St. Margaret Mary about His Sacred Heart. Fr. Croiset was the spiritual director for St. Margaret Mary for 43 years. The book also contains St. Margaret Mary’s prayers to the Sacred Heart and the Sacred Heart Promises.
