Praying from 1 Peter 4:14 relating to Persecution, Blessing, Glory
Dear Heavenly Father,
I pray that if I am ever insulted for the sake of Christ, that I may remember this promise and find comfort in it. May I be blessed by the Spirit of glory and of God resting upon me, and may I be strengthened by Your presence in those moments.
Even if others blaspheme Your name, may I continue to glorify You and stand firm in my faith. Help me to remember that any suffering I endure for Your sake is temporary, but the reward of eternal life with You is everlasting.
Thank You for the promise that I am blessed when I am insulted for Your name’s sake. May I always be willing to stand up for You and Your truth, no matter the cost.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
