When someone is persecuted for any reason, it is a powerful opportunity to give witness to the authority of God and the gift of faith. This is especially true when someone is oppressed because of what one believes.
Have I experienced prejudice? Have I ever discriminated against another person? Do I see the opportunity to witness to Faith when this happens?
O God, grant me an open mind and hearth. May I give witness to Jesus by treating everyone well and to accept any suffering I experience in His Name.
