Ah, Lord of Hosts, who judges righteously, who tests the heart and mind, to You I have committed the cause of those suffering persecution for their faith. Let Your Spirit of Truth rush upon them, and may the ropes that bind their arms become as flax that has caught fire, and may their bonds melt off their hands. Vindicate these innocents in the eyes of all those around them. May the watching world see and know they are Yours and are upheld by You, O Lord God Almighty, and may they tremble.
Genesis 20.16; Judges 15.14; Jeremiah 11.20; 1 John 4.6
