Praying from Matthew 5:11 relating to Persecution, Blessing, False accusations.

Dear Lord, I claim the promise that you have given us in your word. I pray that I may be blessed when people reproach me, persecute me, and say all kinds of evil against me falsely, for your sake. Help me to stand firm in my faith and to trust in your unfailing love and protection. May I never be ashamed of the gospel, but always be willing to share it with others. Thank you for your promise of blessing, and may I always remember that I am yours. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Verse: “Blessed are you when people reproach you, persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
