(Voice of the Persecuted) My Brothers and Sisters, We want to thank each and everyone of you who prayed on the 2nd (IDOP) International Day of Prayer call on Sunday 11/8. God showed up in an amazing way, we believe and know He heard our prayers. Lord willing, our prayers have helped make the cross of the persecuted a little lighter.
Despite a few technical difficulties, most likely caused by the enemy, God gave us blessing through hearing from persecuted believers and those who work with them.
We heard from Christians in Pakistan, Thailand, a brother who escaped extreme persecution now seeking asylum in a country of refuge. We also heard from an Iranian believer who shared about his own persecution experiences in Iran and explained what Iranian Christians are facing today. He told us many Western Christians are oblivious that persecution of Christians is expanding across the globe, he’s even been affected by it since fleeing Iran. He’s discussed the growing anti-Christian sentiment he’s witnessing in the U.S. and Canada, with the majority blinded to the coming persecution we soon may face. We were blessed by his insights.

Near the end of our call, a dear Chinese sister had a vision while we prayed. She said we had torches which we were reaching towards heaven. Our torches were lit with the fire of God and the fire was spreading from torch to torch connecting across the globe. Truly powerful and amazing.
I trust God was pleased, may He be glorified by our prayers. And again I do believe the cross of the persecuted was made a little lighter.
Again, thank you dear prayer warriors! Much blessing be upon you in Jesus.
Your brother in Christ,
Serving Jesus as Prayer Director for Voice of the Persecuted and Persecution Watch
