Prayer for February 8: Please pray with me. God who is our all in all, today we lift up those who face insurmountable odds. We lift up those who will not compromise their faith in the face of tyrants, wherever they may be. We lift up those whose loyalty remains with you. In the Hebrew Bible you gave us the example of Daniel – a faithful servant of you. So faithful that he was willing to die rather than deny you. We pray for those who are persecuted and face death for the faith that you give them. Walk with them as you were with Daniel in the lion’s den. Amen.
