DO YOU remember when you first surrendered your life to Christ? If you are like me, you thought all your troubles would come to an end.

For hundreds of years, our Native American people have suffered at the hands of others, often in the name of Christianity. They have also endured painful persecution and rejection by friends and relatives because of their faith in Christ.

TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Native people and those serving in Native Ministry will be kept safe from unreasonable people.

Luke 21:16-19 says "You will be betrayed by your own parents, brothers, family, and friends. Some of you will even be killed. Because of me, you will be hated by everyone. But donít worry! You will be saved by being faithful to me."

Ask our Creator to protect and guide our First Nations people and those serving in Native Ministry, as they experience tribulation because of their faith.

ADDITIONAL SCRIPTURES (4 translations: The Scriptures, CEV, Amplified, KJV):
"The Scriptures" is a translation that includes the original Hebrew names and has the books in chronological order.  The Contemporary English Version (CEV) is a translation that is written for 'oral tradition' peoples and it flows well while reading it aloud.  The Amplified version is one where meanings of words and phrases are 'amplified' for better understanding.  The King James Version (KJV) is the translation that works well with Strong's Concordance. Please also note the links to Scripture in Cherokee.

Luke 21:12-19- "But before all this, they shall lay their hands on you and persecute you you, delivering you up to the congregations and prisons, and be brought before sovereigns and rulers for My Name's sake,  And it shall turn out to you for a witness. Therefore, resolve in your hearts not to premeditate on what to answer. For I shall give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries shall not be able to refute or resist. And you shall also be betrayed by parents and brothers and relatives and friends. And some of you shall be put to death. And you shall be hated by all because of My Name. But not a hair of your head shall be lost at all. Possess your lives by your endurance!" (The Scriptures)
Luke 21:12-19 - (CEV)
Luke 21:12-19 - (Amplified)
Luke 21:12-19 - (KJV)
Luke Chapter 21 in Cherokee .

2 Thessalonians 3:1-3 - "For the rest, brothers, pray for us, so that the Word of spreads rapidly and be praised, as also with you, and that we might be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men, for not all have belief. But the Master is trustworthy, who shall establish you and guard you from the wicked one." (The Scriptures)
2 Thessalonians 3:1-3 - "Finally, our friends, please pray for us. This will help the message about the Lord to spread quickly, and others will respect it, just as you do. Pray that we may be kept safe from worthless and evil people. After all, not everyone has faith. But the Lord can be trusted to make you strong and protect you from harm." (CEV)
2 Thessalonians 3:1-3 - "Furthermore, brethren, do pray for us, that the Word of the Lord may speed on (spread rapidly and run its course) and be glorified (extolled) and triumph, even as [it has done] with you. And that we may be delivered from perverse (improper, unrighteous) and wicked (actively malicious) men, for not everybody has faith and is held by it. Yet the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen [you] and set you on a firm foundation and guard you from the evil [one]."  (Amplified)
2 Thessalonians 3:1-3 - "Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you; And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith. But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil." (KJV)
2 Thessalonians Chapter 3 in Cherokee.

Colossians 4:2-6 - "Continue in prayer, watching therein, with thanksgiving, praying at the same time also for us, that Elohim would open to us a door for the word, to speak the secret of Messiah, for which I am also in chains, so that I make it clear, as I should speak. Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time. Let your word always be with favour, seasoned with salt, so that you know how you ought to answer each one." (The Scriptures)
Colossians 4:2-6 - "Never give up praying. And when you pray, keep alert and be thankful. Be sure to pray that God will make a way for us to spread his message and explain the mystery about Christ, even though I am in jail for doing this. Please pray that I will make the message as clear as possible. When you are with unbelievers, always make good use of the time. Be pleasant and hold their interest when you speak the message.  Choose your words carefully and be ready to give answers to anyone who asks questions." (CEV)
Colossians 4:2-6 - "Be earnest and unwearied and steadfast in your prayer [life], being [both] alert and intent in [your praying] with thanksgiving. And at the same time pray for us also, that God may open a door to us for the Word  (the Gospel), to proclaim the mystery concerning Christ (the Messiah) on account of which I am in prison; That I may proclaim it fully and make it clear [speak boldly and unfold that mystery], as is my duty. Behave yourselves wisely [living prudently and with discretion] in your relations with those of the outside world (the non-Christians), making the very most of the time and seizing (buying up) the opportunity. Let your speech at all times be gracious (pleasant and winsome), seasoned {as it were] with salt, [so that you may never be at a loss] to know how you ought to answer anyone [who puts a question to you]." (Amplified)
Colossians 4:2-6 - "Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak. Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man." (KJV)
Colossians Chapter 4 in Cherokee.
