Author of creation, You in Your wisdom and power created a universe for Your glory and a people for Your family. You made us in Your image and desired communion with us. Since the moment we broke that communion with You, we have been suffering in an increasingly dark world. In Your compassion, You sent light and love back to us by Your Son whom we have often rejected. I pray that our eyes would be opened to Him in our every day lives. I pray that we would live in a full awareness of Him, His glory, His love, and His authority over our lives. I pray that You would open up channels for the distribution of Your Gospel in Belarus and that You would use literature, movies, music, and Bibles to bring many hearts to You. I pray for boldness and safety for their distributors, for success in their missions, and for the effectiveness of the materials in the hearts of the lost. If these truth-bearing materials be confiscated, I pray You would use them to bring the authorities and ransackers to a saving knowledge and love of Your Son. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
