Savior and Redeemer, You gave us two commands on earth: to love You with all that we are and to love others as ourselves. You told Peter that if he loved You, he needed to feed Your sheep. You told Your disciples to go and make other disciples. Through Moses, You told us to pass down Your Word through our descendants. Everything about You requires that we share Your beauty and Your goodness. Yet for millions of people, this simple act of kindness could result in their death or torture or imprisonment. Father, have compassion on them. Give them strength and courage to not only continue to worship You with passion and fervency, to depend on You daily, but also to share Your truth and Your message. Give them boldness and confidence to stand on Your promises and to serve You diligently. Bind up their wounds and heal their scars, Lord. Remind them that where even only two or three are gathered, You are among them. Remind them that You never leave them and will never forsake them. Remind them of the cross and what You suffered for them as a result of Your love. Hold them in Your arms and lift them up so that they will not stumble. Give them vision and passion, Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
