Father,  We lift up M.B. Thapa to you today.  I don’t even know if he is a man or a woman, but You know all there is to know about the situation, and his family.  I ask You to make Your presence real in his life today, to protect him and his family and friends, and to show him exactly what you want him to do.  Guide him into all the truth.  Give him the grace and mercy to confront each situation that arises each day, and empower him to allow Your love to flow through him to everyone he meets, whether he is free or in prison.  I commit him into Your hands, knowing that You have great plans for him.  Set his feet upon the rock, and strengthen him with the same mighty power that You used when You raised Jesus from the dead.  In Jesus beautiful name, Amen.

Father,  Your people are being persecuted all over the world, in the greatest pogrom to ever exist on earth.  We lift them all up to You and ask You to make Your presence known and real in each one of their lives, from the youngest to the oldest.  We ask you to bring Your amazing peace to the Wangyal family, providing for all of their needs, as they face the unknown days, and years, ahead.  Protect the Pastor in all his prison experiences.  Protect and provide for his family.  Use this trial to bring each member of the family closer, and deeper, to You.  Make each person a blessing to all those around them, and shine the light of Your glory through each of them, even the children whom You knit together in their mother’s womb.  Bless them.  Keep them.  Make Your face to shine upon them, and fill them with peace.
