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.
