Prayer for Christian Martyrs

Lord, so great is our love for you

That even though we walk in a world

where speaking your name can mean certain death

Your faithful still speak it

And speak it all the louder.

Help us work for a world where all may speak their creeds

And pray their prayers

Without fear of violence.

Hear the prayers of those who abide with you

in dangerous times

and in dark valleys,

And who die with your name on their lips.

Draw them quickly to your side

Where they might know eternal peace.
