WHEN THE CRIES OF YOUR FAITHFUL BELIEVERS ARE HEARD
Words by Mary Rose Jensen
When the cries of Your faithful believers are heard,
When a prison cell holds those who trust in Your Word,
When prayer is illegal and beatings ensue,
God, defend and protect those who suffer for You.
When a meeting for worship is cause for alarm
In the minds of officials whose purpose is harm,
We pray for those people who hate us and You.
God, enlighten their hearts so they seek what is true.
Where Your Word is forbidden send hope and good news.
Where Your church is unwelcome give joy found in You.
Encourage Your people that Christ never fails.
God, give strength to Your kingdom for it will prevail.
