Scripture: Acts 4:13 "After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly."

Encouragement: All over the world, there is a growing increase in the persecution of Christians. What can we do? According to Acts 4:13, we can pray for all our Christian brothers and sisters all over the world. Our prayers can cause them to receive strength from the Holy Spirit so they can declare God's word with boldness. Remember to pray daily for Christians all over the world.

Prayer: Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering (Heb. 13:3). Ask the Lord to give persecuted Christians around the world His power, strength and courage to continue to live for Christ and declare His gospel even in the face of harsh persecution.
