155 I Pledge My Life to Follow God Faithfully
1 I’ve been arrested by the CCP for spreading the gospel and bearing witness to God. Trapped in a demons’ lair, I lie on the freezing floor. They use all kinds of devices to torture my weakened body. Being humiliated by the demons makes death seem preferable to life. I feel weak so many times, I sob in pain, I am tormented so many times, I groan in pain. Despair and fear surround me, my heart weeps. I cannot tell when this torture and torment will ever come to an end. I pray so many times to God in the pitch black of night. God’s words give me the faith to stand firm.
2 I think of that wonderful time I spent together with God. That joyful time arises in my mind. How could I forget the vow I made back then to bear a victorious testimony to shame Satan? Even if this pain has not yet been taken from me, but carries on, even if the gales continue to blow and the rainstorms suddenly crash down, even if I die after I wake, I firmly believe that my life and death are held in God’s hands. I will never surrender no matter how Satan torments me, and I vow to bear resounding witness to glorify God.
3 Through trials and tribulations, I finally awaken. I see that Satan is despicable, cruel and evil. Flames of rage are kindled in my heart. I pledge my life to forsake the great red dragon and bear witness to God. It is my honor to now be able to follow Christ of the last days. Being judged by God and gaining the truth is the greatest blessing. With God’s word beside me, I shall no longer feel alone or afraid. With God guiding me through tribulation, I calmly walk on. Through trials and tribulations, I am filled with faith. I pledge my life to follow Christ till the very end.
