Lord Jesus Christ, we wake up this morning with renewed hope and strength. Just like the Christian Martyrs of Uganda and other martyrs who remained steadfast in their prayer and faith in Jesus Christ when being persecuted until their death, give us the faith, fortitude, chastity and fidelity to always remain loving obedient to You.
By their Intercession, may their virtues increase in us, so that we may continue deserving the opportunity to become propagators of the true faith.
In our prayer, we ask all Martyrs to intercede for those Christians who suffer and get persecuted under the unjust use of authority by governments and other leaders.
May all who are being cruelly persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ be comforted by the Divine Mercy and be empowered with the gift and grace of fortitude.
We pray all these through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. Amen.
