Dear Father, I believe you woke me up in these early hours of this morning because someone somewhere needs prayer. If that isn't the case, I still want to pray for my brothers and sisters all over the world who are not feeling as safe and secure as I am at this moment. Some are in fear for their lives and the lives of their family simply because they openly believe in You and in your son. Some are lonely, hurt, sick, and some feeling so weak spiritually that they are at the point of falling away. I pray you will bless all of these people, Father. Let every single one of them feel the comfort of your presence and love, I pray that you will especially bless and comfort those Christians in the top ten countries of the world for persecution: North Korea, Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sudan, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, and Eritrea. Be with all persecuted Christians all over the world as well. Give them strength and courage to face oppression from their enemies. Let them know you are with them in their trials, that a home awaits them in heaven if they hold on to their faith and not submit to those opposing Jesus as Lord. Bless, protect, and provide for all your missionaries across the world, especially WEI teachers and all its students whose hearts are open to your Word. Help the WEI teachers to teach correctly and be an encouragement. For those students who choose to follow Jesus, please protect them from harm by opposing false religions. Help them to grow and be strong in their faith in Jesus. Bless Randal and Vicki as they minister to those in Brazil. Grant them the gift of good health; heal Randal's stomach. Bless Vicki as she shares the gospel. May she bring women to new life in Christ as she teaches and counsels them. Keep their loved ones safe and shelter them with your love and comfort in all circumstances. Bless, strengthen, and protect all newly converted as a result of their ministry especially Denilson, Emerson, Pedro and Karol. Keep all of them safe from spiritual wolves and false teachers. Strengthen the church plants in Brazil and use these new converts in a mighty way to share your good news to those around them. Please shine on all your people. Let us all bring light to a dark world and be like shining stars in the universe for your kingdom. I love, honor, and praise you, God, and ask these things in the name of Jesus, my Lord.
