December 22 – Saint Ischyrion

Saint Ischyrion

Precious Jesus, Saint Ischyrion worked for a magistrate who ordered him to sacrifice to Roman gods.  He refused, even after his master abused him.  When he defended his belief in You, he was tortured and impaled.  I ask him to pray for me when I have to stand up to an employer or any other person in authority over me, especially to defend my faith.  O Lord, You said that we are not to worry about our defense because the Holy Spirit will teach us what to say (Luke 12:11-12).  Help me to rely on Your Spirit and to stand firm, no matter what the cost, because You paid a far greater price for us.  Saint Ischyrion, pray for me.  Amen.
