Introductory Prayer: I approach you humbly in this meditation, Lord, aware of my great need for you. Though a sinner, I take great comfort in knowing that you love me. Let that love fuel my faith in you. And let this prayer be a steppingstone to heaven.
Petition: Grant me, Lord, the courage to face persecutions, great and small, for the faith.
Conversation with Christ: Lord, following you isn´t easy. Attacks can come on all sides: from family, friends, the media. I almost wish Christianity was easier, but then, it wasn´t easy for you, either. So help me avoid complaining. Grant me strength to be daring for you.
Resolution: I will raise a delicate point with someone who needs to hear my Christian witness.
