Pray for the Persecuted

For those being persecuted
I whisper a prayer
Almighty Lord, You know
Who, when and where
Your precious ones lie
Behind bolted doors
They stand up for Jesus
In spiritual wars 

For those who are cold
In the enemy’s cell
Lord, send a warm cover
Please, keep them well
For all those who hunger
And still thirst for more
We ask that a miracle
From Your mighty hands pour 

We plead Your power
To be quickly released
To protect the innocent
Whose beatings increase
While proclaiming Your Name
And giving You praise
Knowing today may be
The last of their days 

We pray that You’d send
Encouragement and hope
For believers depressed
Who in dark darkness grope
Lord, send a light
And strength for each day
May they experience Your presence
And power as they pray 

And let us not wane
In our prayers for them
Next door may be next
An American
Jesus said it would come
Let’s not close our eyes
Warnings of persecution
Faintly disguised

And then, if tomorrow
We are the ones
Called to stand up
For God’s only Son
Lord, give us the courage
To answer the call
Remembering that You
Gave Your life for our all

About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used intentionally to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems, song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website will always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
