Praying in real time

In conversation about prayer today, Peter Adam commented on Brother Andrew and prayers for a persecuted church:

Please don’t pray for us.
Please pray with us.
If you pray for us, you will pray for the wrong things. You will pray for safety.
But if you pray with us, you will ask God to bring millions to faith in Christ.
You will pray that when the inevitable backlash comes because of our witness, we will be faithful, even if it costs us our lives.


Can I pray in this way for the persecuted church?

Can I pray this for our missionaries, can I pray this for myself in the evolving context of Australian life and ministry?

May God give me the strength to be real in my discipleship, in my prayer life. Amen.
