‘Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me…’ (Matt. 5:11)
In the world we live in today we may at times find it a struggle to stand up for and speak out in defence of our faith. Sometimes it may be because we find ourselves in the minority and lack the courage to defend the Gospel as we should, but at other times it may be because some have taken to attacking us verbally because of our faith so we are now reluctant to do so. So today please pray for all who are in this position that they may know the Lord’s hand upon them. Pray also for those who perpetrate this kind of behaviour that they too may know the Lord’s hand upon them and so come to know Him for themselves.
