The Daily Prayer
FRIDAY, October 11, 2019
Early church apologist Minucius Felix wrote, “What a beautiful sight it is for God when a Christian mocks at the clatter of the tools of death and the horror of the executioner; when he defends and upholds his liberty in the face of kings and princes, obeying God alone to whom he belongs. Among us, boys and frail women laugh to scorn torture and the gallows cross, the wild beasts and all the other horrors of execution!”
Lord, we pray against fear of persecution and death, knowing we are always walking toward eternal life as we follow the path you have set for us. Amen.
