A YEAR IN PRAYER    "Using God's Word to pray"

As a true disciple of Christ, a born-again believer, do you intercede on behalf of the afflicted saints?

Would you want to know why most Christians made in the USA are not being persecuted? It is because they are sugar instead of salt to the world!

How will you react when faced with violent adversity for the name of Christ?

 

DAY # 178

TODAY’S REQUEST:

TO KEEP PRAYING FOR THE AFFLICTED SAINTS

2 Corinthians 9:12 For the administration of this service not only supplies the needs of the saints, but also is abounding through many thanksgivings to God,
1 Corinthians 16:15 I urge you, brethren––you know the household of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves to the ministry of the saints––
Daniel 7:25 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.
Revelations 14:9-12 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 "he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 "And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name." 12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
Romans 8:27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
