In the name of Jesus, we ask you to be in constant prayer for this man today and every day.
Pastor Andrew Brunson, who has been held in a Turkish prison for more than 20 months, was back in court Monday and denied terrorism and spying charges. None of the charges levied against Pastor Brunson are true, but he could wind up facing 35 years in prison for the false accusations.
I have asked for prayer for Pastor Brunson in this blog before, but I am asking especially that you join me in bombarding heaven RIGHT NOW for this great and courageous man of God.
If you are not familiar with it, you can read more about his plight here on charismanews.com.
Therefore I pray: “In the precious name of Jesus, we pray for favor and mercy and grace upon Pastor Andrew Brunson, who is not only enduring false imprisonment in Turkey but who is also facing false accusations of terrorism and clandestine activity. Lies by unscrupulous witnesses have helped to make this trial a farce. The Turkish government is prosecuting Pastor Brunson and using him as a political pawn.
We pray for our wonderful, gracious and merciful Almighty God to soften the hearts of those who are against him and transform their hearts to see that what they are doing is unjust. We pray for our lawmakers and our executive branch, especially President Donald Trump, to be able to make a difference and to let the Turkish government know, firmly, that this will not be tolerated.
We pray for Pastor Brunson and his mind, that you keep it fresh and filled every day with the things of the Spirit and to help him to continue to trust You and know that You will deliver him from this unjust situation. We pray for Pastor Brunson’s family and take away any fear they might have of what might happen to Pastor Brunson. We pray that he be turned to his family as quickly as possible.
Lord, I pray that everyone who reads this will be on their knees praying for Pastor Brunson, and his family. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
