11-17-2020 (Voice of the Persecuted) It is a joy to learn of a Pastor who has recognized the critical need to lead his church in praying for the wounded members of the Body of Christ. The persecuted praise our God when they hear believers care enough to remember and pray for them.

Imagine you are running a long, tiresome marathon growing weaker with each step. You begin to doubt if you will even make it to the finish line. But then you hear the spectators cheering you on, “Keep going, you can do this!” Some rush in to give you a drink and a cold cloth to cool you down. Your resolve to continue strengthens. Their care and motivation causes you to quicken your steps. The distance seemed shortened as you break through the tape and win the race!

It is much the same when we pray for those suffering for Christ. God blesses uses us to bless them with each one of our prayers, act of love and care. He whispers to them, I’m with you, you are almost there, keep going! They continue running the race and they praise Him. In this, we rejoice and praise God with them and He is glorified.

Watch Pastor Luke engage with his church and encourage them to pray for the persecuted. Pray for him and all pastors who are leading the Body to pray for the persecuted. In the name of Jesus, may the Lord strengthen them and expand their territory.
Please pray more pastors would be encouraged to do the same.

Dear Prayer Warriors, we welcome you to come as the Lord leads us to pray for ….

Those in the Body of Christ suffering persecution

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

On Jul 08, 2020 · Leah Sharibu was kidnapped along with 109 other students on February 19, 2018 when Boko Haram attacked a boarding school in the city of Dapchi, Maiduguri Diocese, in north-eastern Nigeria. A month later, some of the girls died in captivity and all the others were released, except Leah.

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

On December 28 the police raided the Early Rain Church and arrested Pastor Wang Yi, his wife Jiang Rong, and ten elders of the well-known 750-member church for holding “illegal” services. Some 100 believers were detained, questioned, and later released. Pastor Wang’s wife was also released. Pastor Wang remained in detention.

Anita, an Iranian Christian, persecuted by the Islamic regime.

The release of Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from Iran, and his family as their Persecution continues. He is serving the second year of his six-year sentence, recently reduced from ten years.

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani converted to Christianity at the age of 19 and leads a 400-member house church in Rasht, Iran. Since 2006,

Iranian authorities have consistently harassed and detained Pastor Nadarkhani and his family. In 2010, the authorities sentenced him to death for apostasy before acquitting him in 2012.

He was tried again in 2017 on false charges of “acting against national security” and promoting “Zionist Christianity,” for which he was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. By July 2018, plainclothes agents raided his home to execute the sentence, beating and apprehending him and using a taser gun on one of his sons. He is now incarcerated at the notorious Evin prison near Tehran.

The harvest for the Kingdom of God.

“2 And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

In Christ’s 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!
