Speak On Behalf Of Those Who Suffer

2 Timothy 4:16

At my first defense, no one came to my support,
but everyone deserted me.
May it not be held against them.

The Apostle Paul knew exactly what it was like to be alone, to be deserted by all who called themselves brothers and sisters.

Christians are the largest persecuted group in the world today.

But this is so seldom mentioned in our gatherings and church services.

Very few Christians know the names of their fellow believers who are in prison.....

Let us speak on behalf of those who suffer.

Let us not desert those that belong to
the same body that we belong to
and who desperately need the encouragement
of our intervention on their behalf.

Oh Lord,
broaden my awareness of the needs of
my suffering brothers and sisters.
May I not be known for my silence.
