Last year, Christians were attacked while worshiping in here in the US, and in Egypt and Nigeria. Around the world, many of our brothers and sisters in Christ meet together in secret, hoping to avoid violent confrontations. Let us pray for their safe worship.
Lord, we know that there is no safer place for believers than at your feet. But here on earth, there are those who are attacked for and during their worship of you. We pray for their safety, for their joy, for their peace. May your angels encamp round about them, may their praise rise to you from the safe circle of your protection. Amen.
Psalm 34:7 (MSG)
God’s angel sets up a circle
of protection around us while we pray.
