As we enter the Christmas season, please pray for the persecuted church worldwide. Christians often experience increased persecution when celebrating Christian rooted holidays like Christmas and Easter. Please pray that God would provide Christians with peace and joy and an opportunity to celebrate Jesus’s birth publicly with other Christians. Pray also that their persecutors would see the hope and joy in Jesus that Christians celebrate and turn to Him for salvation.

“He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love.”

— Joy to the World
