Comfort for the saints who are under attack


Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 2 Timothy 3:12


"Is thy God able?..."
Thou servant of the living God,
Whilst lions round thee roar,
Look up and trust and praise His name,
And all His ways adore;
For even now, in peril dire,
He works to set thee free,
And in a way known but to Him,
Shall thy deliverance be.
Dost wait while lions round thee stand,
Dost wait in gloom, alone?
And looking up above thy head
See but a sealed stone?
Praise in the dark! Yea, praise His Name,
Who trusted thee to see
His mighty power displayed again
For thee, His saint, for thee.
Thou servant of the living God,
Thine but to wait and praise;
The living God, Himself will work,
To Him thine anthem raise.
Though undelivered, thou dost wait,
The God Who works for thee,
When His hour strikes, will with a word,
Set thee for ever free.

-Margaret E. Barber
O Lord, I pray for my dear readers who are under attack right now. When the enemy whispers us; "Is thy God able?..." and tries to weaken our faith and trust to Jesus Christ, O Lord, strengthen us by Thy word. Give us power to refuse despair. Help us to praise Thee even in the dark! Deliver us, save us, and rescue us, Lord, for Thou are our only refuge on this earth. O hear this prayer even now! In Jesus' name. Amen.


  1. It is an amazing post Kinuko. You know I have been doubting God a lot lately. I am asking a lot of questions.

  2. Dear Irina, good morning. I am grateful that this post was useful to you. Dear my little sister, I can understand how you feel when you are in doubt despite your willingness to trust Him. The modern philosophy and new Christianity tend to glorify doubts and they rather encourage us to stay there, but our gracious Lord will not let us be in astray. The LORD wants us to walk in Him with complete trust so that we will be relaxed and rest in His arms. O Lord, I lift up our precious Irina right at this moment. I pray like a little girl. Abba, remove doubts from her heart NOW! This is my simple and earnest prayer. Please do listen to this prayer. I pray this with all of my heart for my dear friend. In Jesus' name. Amen.
