Pray For The Persecuted Church

The days have come and gone
For those who’ve done no wrong
They’ve certainly had to be strong
Because of what they’ve undergone
Pray for the Persecuted Church

The only point that isn’t liked
Is doing what, in God’s eye, is right
According to God’s perfect light
For that they are truly disliked.
Pray for the Persecuted Church

They’re treated with utmost disdain
Those who hate God seek to complain
And Christians end in terrible pain
They are sometimes e’en killed and slain
Pray for the Persecuted Church

We here in the West are complacent
From pleasures there needs estrangement
Praying is the perfect arrangement
It teaches us to be still and patient.
Pray for the Persecuted Church

The hurting ones need courage and strength
To stand tall, they need all the prayers
They’re pain should be our pain and tears
And hurting for them in our hearts at length.
Pray for the Persecuted Church.

Scripture is clear, Remember those
That are in bonds, and also their foes
God might possibly be fully disposed
With His love around them to enclose.
Pray for the Persecuted Church.

You see the church only makes a mark
When she follows God to finally embark
Upon His mission not hers then the spark
Of sacrifice will be her watermark.
Pray for the Persecuted Church.

Only then will the world get to see
The church, though in pain, she is free.
She chooses to follow Him not a prithee
Faith but obedience doing it coloss’ly.
Pray for the Persecuted Church.

She will give up her life for her Lord
And His will, her life will be out poured
Her own will is considered deplored
Then in heaven she’ll receive her reward.
Pray for the Persecuted Church.

So our duty is quite clear for us now.
We are bound only to God to bow
His Word we follow and avow
Persecution He truly will allow
Pray for the Persecuted Church
