PASTOR BETHEL CHOTO
SENIOR PASTOR | WORD OF FAITH MIRACLE CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES | PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA
Shalom. This is Bishop Bethel Choto of Africa, Senior Pastor of Faith4Life and Word of Faith MiracleChristian Ministries churches. Today, we are praying for persecuted Christians around the world. Let’s open our Bibles toEphesians chapter 6, verses 18-20and I’m going to read verse 18: “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”Therefore, Paul is telling us that we need to pray for all saints. Today we are praying, particularly, for the saints under persecution—that they will be able to be given the right words to preach the Gospel without fear of their persecutors and be able to stand as true ambassadors of the Gospel with all angelic protection and leading of the Holy Spirit.
Let’s also open your Bibles toHebrews 13 and verse 3. And it reads,“Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.”We want to lift the hands of our brothers and sisters that are suffering for the sake of the Gospel with authority because we are the righteous. Our prayer today has tremendous power that will have impact in thelives of Christians who are suffering for their faith around the world. Let us pray for the church and the persecution, in the name of Jesus. Amen. Let us pray.
