Prayer for persecuted Christians

Father in Heaven, you make your sun shine on good and bad alike. You son Jesus Christ died for us all and in his glorious Resurrection. He still retains the five wounds of his Passion. With his divine power he now sustains all those who suffer persecution and martyrdom for the sake of their fidelity to the faith of the Church. Merciful and mighty Father, do not allow Cain to return again to murder helpless and innocent Abel.

May persecuted Christians around the world remain, like Mary, their Mother, together at the foot of the cross of Christ our divine master, Comfort those menaced by violence and those oppressed by uncertainty.

May your Holy Spirit of love make fruitful the witness and the blood of those who die forgiving.

Father, forgive those who persecute your servants; for they know not what they do. Amen.

God’s Wrath Against Sinful Humanity

Think about today’s wold. People know about God, go to church, pray daily but everything is just as a routine work. They are become wicked. They forget about God’s invisible qualities, eternal power and divine nature. They know that God can see every wrong what the do, but still they do the same wrong again and again. They do confession, but again do same sin. So God give them pain, diseases.

Today technology has improved a lot, just touch of a finger tip we can do many things sitting at home or travelling. This made people to think they are wise, but the scripture says that “Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools“. Because people have no time for God, but have time for other worldly pleasures.

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.(Romans 1:18-25)

Above bible verses 24 is a true these days. Internet is one of the main medium for this.

Below verses speak what is happening today. We read news about this lust and sinful unnatural relations. Even some people are fighting for this and according to them all these are good for happiness. Satan is playing a great role on this.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love,no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:26-32)

Each and every word written in above verses is really true and fact these days. Fighting each other, killing, children do not obey parents or elders and do whatever they like.

Let us pray to God to have mercy on us, change the world, send the Holy Spirit to the mind of such people for repentance. Lord save this world.
