(Voice of the Persecuted) Dear Saints I was reflecting on this quote from Corrie Ten Boom, “When a Christian shuns fellowship with other Christians, the devil smiles. When he stops studying the Bible, the devil laughs. When he stops praying, the devil shouts for joy.” When we come on the Persecuted Watch prayer conference call, we gather and have great fellowship together…the devil doesn’t smile. We spend time in God’s Word when we pray for our persecuted brothers and sister…the devil doesn’t laugh. We pray for the global harvest and for one another…the devil has no joy.
The Lord leads us to come on the call to pray. We rejoice because He hears our cries for mercy over the persecuted and He answers our prayers! The joy becomes ours because we receive victory in the Lord in our obedience to Him.
I remember a favorite verse of Brother Blaine, James 5:16 “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much..” He said and prayed it with such a conviction that it made my heart so joyful!
Tonight, I’d like to share about a beautiful story of redemption called, ‘Once a Drug Dealer, Now an Evangelist’. We will continue to lift up Boko Haram captives, Alice and Leah Sharibu, and also for Leah’s family. We will continue to remember Pastor Wang Yi imprisoned in China. Lord willing, I look forward to praying with you tonight on the call.
Your Sister in Jesus,

What is Persecution Watch?
Persecution Watch is a U.S. national prayer conference call ministry that prays specifically for the global Persecuted Church. For over a decade, Blaine Scogin led this national network of believers who faithfully pray for the persecuted and the global harvest for the Kingdom of God. The group meets via a free call-in service every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday night at 9pm Eastern (please check your time zone). Blaine also served as Prayer Director for Voice of the Persecuted and our missions became one. The prayer mission of Persecution Watch is an important part of our own. With the passing of Blaine into glory on December 26, 2019, Voice of the Persecuted is committed to continue the prayer conference call for the persecuted along with our dedicated prayer warrior team.
On occasion, persecuted brothers and sisters have been invited on the call to share the trials they’re facing. The team serves to encourage them by washing their feet in Spirit led prayer. Time is often reserved for those on the call to ask questions. We believe this helps to gain a better understanding of the situation that persecuted Christians endure in their specific nations. Q&A also helps us to focus our prayers based on their current needs.
Persecution Watch also hosts callers who want to pray united from other nations. If your heart is perplexed by the sufferings of our persecuted brothers and sisters, you no longer need to pray alone. We welcome all who desire to pray for the persecuted church and consider it a joy to pray together with you. If you’re new to the call and can’t find your voice, listen in and pray silently or on mute. We are grateful and thank the Lord for bringing us all together to pray in agreement for our persecuted family in Christ. We can all be prayer warriors on this call!
