(Voice of the Persecuted) Dear Prayer Warriors, as the Lord leads you; we welcome you on tonight’s Persecution Watch Prayer conference call to pray with us for our persecuted brothers and sister and for the harvest.
It is written, “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” Romans 12:12
Oh, what joy and peace we have in the Lord when trouble surrounds us.
For our hope comes from the Lord and we are His precious children.
“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” Jeremiah 31:3
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.” Ephesians 6:18-20
John replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, “I am the voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way for the Lord.’ John 1:23
As I was rejoicing in the Lord last night, this song came to mind an oh, what joy The Lord gave to me. I wanted to dance and sing to Him and glorify His Holy Name! My spirit was boosted with immense joy.
These are the days of Elijah,
Declaring the word of the Lord
And these are the days of Your servant Moses,
Righteousness being restored.
And though these are days of great trial,
Of famine and darkness and sword,
Still, we are the voice in the desert crying
“Prepare ye the way of the Lord!”
I highly recommend that you listen to this song in the video below with lyrics included!
Glory, Glory to our Lord God Almighty! My dear brothers and sisters come closer to the Father, to the Living Water and taste His peace. Come near to Him to receive His Glory!!!
We will continue to lift up our dear precious Leah Sharibu and Alice, who continue to suffer as captives of the Islamic Boko Haram group in Nigeria.
Also, for Pastor Wang Yi, who was sentenced to 9 years in prison for boldly sharing the love of God in China.
In Christ Love

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!
NOTE: Persecution Watch has a new email address for the prayer team and those who would like to receive urgent prayer requests, weekly call prayer points and notification of special prayer events and special guest speakers.
