Almighty God, our God of peace and hope. We pray for the saints who stayed faithful unto death, who triumphed over suffering and who were faithful to you even as they face death. We pray O God that you strengthen them with your grace as they endure reproach and persecution, as they faithfully bear witness to the name of Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever more.
We pray you will give us courage to stand up for you in our relative safety and comfort. Give us the urgency to spread your good news to unbelievers so that they may hear of your love for them. Give us the courage to speak up. Give us the courage to voice out. Give us the words to tell of your gift of salvation.
