Merry Christmas from the Persecution Watch Prayer Team

United with the Persecuted


Share their stories Knowledge is power!



Dear brothers and sisters, peace to you all! Millions of believers around the globe are celebrating Christmas, the birth our Lord Jesus Christ. For some, this is a time anticipation of getting together with family and friends. For others it can be a time of stress, loneliness or grief. Yet, some reject the Son and the story of his birth altogether. But for Christians who know the joy of the Savior in their hearts, every day they are cherishing the peace and the love of Christ. With great hope, they await the day when they will see Him face to face, in all His glory and might. And the most precious gift, in Christ alone, of eternal life to spend with Him. This amazing gift, God has given in His grace for those who love Him and believe.

I encourage all of you, my dear brothers and sisters, to press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called us heavenward in Christ Jesus. Rejoice! Only God knows the true hearts of men, but we will keep sharing the Good News of the Gospel. Pray for those struggling and for unbelievers to come to know our Christ.

We will not be gathering tonight on the prayer conference call, but we will resume the call on Thursday evening, 9 p.m. Eastern. Until then, please continue to lift our persecuted brothers and sisters in your prayers as if you are with them sharing in their trials and afflictions. Please pray for the precious harvest. May hearts be opened to the saving message of faith in Christ alone, our dear Lord and Savior!

Merry Christmas, our hearts and love are with all of you.

Nadia Dybvik, Prayer Leader and the Persecution Watch Prayer Team

    And a Very Merry Christmas to all of you. Thank you for your devotion to God’s invitation to support our persecuted family. May you be filled with the love of the Father, the grace of the Son, and the fellowship of the Spirit, through Christmas Day and every day thereafter.

    This was a more encouraging post than you know. I am struggling more than a bit about this race. Jesus said something to me yesterday that is a bit too challenging for me and I am having to work this out. It is a pride and flesh problem in which, truthfully, I have ought. He wants me to rise above that. I don’t want to. But I think He has something for me to do if I overcome. It’s hard. I admit I am mad. But I know He has to get us to think like Him in order to get the job done. It’s hard sometimes. But those of use that know Him even a bit know that overcoming our flesh brings a reward,

    Merry Christmas Persecution Watch. God bless and renew Blaine. Special prayers and love to those who bear stripes, persecution, and hardship because they will not turn their back on what they know about Jesus.

    • Amen! Thank you for being a part of our prayer team. It means so much to the persecuted. As you work through the convictions the Lord has placed on your heart, know that we are praying for you. I’m excited to see what the Lord has planned when you trust and overcome! Have a blessed Christmas and a fruitful new year, dear sister.

        Thank you so much Lois. I am in the midst of a struggle that I think has been personally ordained for me. It’s really stupid of me because I know my Savior has a higher plan. Jesus can be very challenging!
        All that said, God bless Persecution Watch and all those faithful servants. They don’t even know how they changed my life. I love you all very much.
