Lord, today we pray for the first government office created to address the persecution of Christians in the Middle East and Europe. Lord, we appreciate Hungary's minister for human resources, Zoltan Balog, and the attention he is drawing to the statistics for religious persecution: that four out of five people killed for religious reasons are Christians. Mixing government and religion can be so complex, so we pray for wisdom for those leading this office as they seek to draw international awareness to the persecution of Christians, and as they coordinate humanitarian efforts. We pray for success in being your hand to rescue and aid your children within tumultuous areas of the world. In Jesus' name we pray, amen.
