Christian persecution and religious liberty violations take on many forms. The Persecution Report is an Ave Maria Radio project committed to sharing these types of stories. Here, we focus on the universal Church and raise awareness on the plight of our Christian brothers and sisters in the US and around the world.

Let's Pray

Prayer for Persecuted Christians

O God of all the nations,
the One God who is and was and always will be,
in your providence you willed that your Church
be united to the suffering of your Son.
Look with mercy on your servants
who are persecuted for their faith in you.
Grant them perseverance and courage
to be worthy imitators of Christ.
Bring your wisdom upon leaders of nations
to work for peace among all peoples.
May your Spirit open conversion
for those who contradict your will,
that we may live in harmony.
Give us the grace to be united in truth and freedom,
and to always seek your will in our lives.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Our Lady, Queen of Peace, pray for us.

Composed by Archbishop William E. Lori for the Knights of Columbus.
