“Remember the prisoners, as though in prison with them, and those who are ill-treated, since you yourselves also are in the body.” Hebrews 13:3
Daily, we must remember those imprisoned for their Christian beliefs,
for they are on a sea with treacherous shoals and dangerous reefs.
We hear reports of them taking beatings as they refuse to deny their Savior;
so we pray for them and ask for mighty and extraordinary favor.
We declare that before their enemies, You will prepare for them a table–
due simply to the supernatural favor of God–we know that You are able.
We pray their captors’ hostility will become compassion for them;
and we claim that whom the Son makes free is free indeed, a scriptural gem.
We know that some have gone on to heaven–that’s “made free” as well;
but we’re believing, Lord, yet for divine releases here on earth to tell.
Thank you for those who stand for these people legally, citing human rights–
We ask Your wisdom and courage for them in assisting the persecuted in these fights.
We pray that Your strength is upholding those imprisoned for their faith in You,
and we pray a continued sense of Your presence for their beloved families, too.
We take authority over blinding spirits, which affect leadership in lands so cruel,,
remembering that the prayer of faith for the imprisoned is our most effective tool.
P. A. Oltrogge
