2 Timothy 3

Father God,
Your servants often warn about distressing times ahead–
Jesus gave these warnings, and so does the writer of this letter.

We hear of an uncanny list of evil doers, uncanny because this list fits our age so well.
Sound the alarm in our hearts, too, and make us swift to avoid evil-doers.

God, it is unpleasant to hear it,
but we are forewarned that persecution is a real possibility in our time for us,
and actually takes place for many who are persecuted and killed, right now.

Prepare us so we will be ready should a time of persecution come to us. Support and encourage persecuted brothers and sisters who are now persecuted for their faith.  May we be strong enough in faith to hold on to the sound teaching of your Spirit-given Word, for it instructs us for salvation through our faith in Christ Jesus.

In his name we pray.
