Persecution Watch: For some it is a great risk to own a Bible

(Voice of the Persecuted) Dear Prayer Warriors, “Indeed all who desire to live a Godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.” 2 Timothy 3:12

All around the world we know that Christian are going through great persecution. One example is in China, these brothers and sisters are forced to go underground because the government would persecute them. But they haven’t lost their faith in God. As they continue to worship God, they conduct services in underground house churches. They must be very cautious as the authorities may be watching every move they make. It is very difficult for them, but that doesn’t stop these dear ones from trusting completely in God.

It is illegal and dangerous to own a Bible.

Below is missionary footage capturing the emotion of Chinese Christians receiving bibles. We can see the joy, excitement as they receive their very first Bible and how grateful they are. The emotion is real and some are moved to tears. It’s inspiring to see how precious the Bible is to them. This is powerful but heartbreaking at the same time and it deeply touches my heart!

Come and pray with us tonight for the persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ!

We will also continue to pray for:

~   Leah Sharibu and Alice that they will be set free from Boko Haram captivity.

~   Pastor Wang Yi to be released from prison, for his family, the children, and the church in China

~   To pray for Anita, an Iranian Christian, persecuted by the Islamic regime.

~   The Global Harvest for the Kingdom of God

In Christ love for His Glory

Nadia and Merlaine, Persecution Watch Moderators

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!
