Persecution Watch: Praying for Salvation

(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Saturday September 11, 2021 in a prayer conference call for Believers hosted by Persecution Watch.

This week, the Lord put it on my heart to pray for the sons of Abraham:

1.  Sons of Isaac and Jacob.  We are in the 10 days of atonement and awe between Feast of Trumpets on 1 Tishrei (7th month) and Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement on the 10th, which coincides with evening of August 15th.  

2.  Sons of Ishmael.  Many Muslims are coming into countries with freedom of religion where they can find the truth if they desire.

3.  Sons of Abraham by faith.  Those grafted into the olive tree; those who believe in the Messiah Yeshua. 

Sons of Jacob:

  • Pray for humility
  • Pray they would truly repent and not just read the scriptures read every year like robots, in a rote manner
  • Pray they would read new scriptures on their own that point to the Messiah; draw them to Isaiah 53 and other scriptures
  • Pray for seeking hearts and divine appointments
  • Pray for protection at this time and every terrorist plot be foiled

Sons of Ismael:

  • Pray the Lord of the harvest would send more workers to reach Muslims who are being resettled 
  • Pray for provision for these ministries
  • Pray when they open their mouths, you, Lord, would fill it  Psalm 81:10
  • Pray for seeking hearts and divine appointments
  • Pray every terrorist be rooted out and terrorist plots be stopped; may plans not succeed so would be ashamed and confounded and seek truth  

Psalm 83:17-18

  • Pray for salvation for every Muslim coming into this and other countries 

Sons by faith:

  • Pray the church would be like Ruth in the Book of Ruth; to provoke the Jews to jealousy  (Romans 11:11), honoring the Feasts of the Lord instead of those with Pagan roots
  • Pray for five-fold ministry so church would grow and mature, exhibiting fruits and gifts  (Ephesians 4:11-13)
  • Pray they would be effective witnesses; opportunities to witness
  • Pray for provision and strength for the persecuted church
  • Pray for protection for those being persecuted

For all three:

Again, we want to lift up persecuted witnesses to the Lord: 

  • Leah Sharibu, prisoner of Boko Haram since 2018. Pray for her release.
  • Alice Loksha Ngaddah, kidnapped February 2019. She is a mother of two, working as a nurse for UNICEF. Pray for her release.
  • Pray for Pastor Wang Yi to be released from prison.
  • Pray for Anita, a Christian convert facing a long prison term who escaped from Iran and praying to go to a country where she can be free and share her faith openly.
  • For the release of Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from Iran. For his family as their Persecution continues. Pastor Nadarkhani is serving the second year of his six-year sentence.

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 time in the United States (please check your time zone). Blaine also served as Prayer Director for Voice of the Persecuted, and the missions became one. Brother Blaine passed into glory on December 26, 2019. It was truly a blessing for all of us to serve alongside this dear man of God and he will be greatly missed. The prayer mission of Persecution Watch remains an important part of our mission. Voice of the Persecuted is committed to continue the prayer conference call for the persecuted along with the dedicated Persecution Watch prayer warrior team.

Prior to the passing of Brother Blaine, he confirmed the passing of the torch as prayer conference call leader to Nadia Dybvik. Nadia has a burdened heart for the persecuted and is a prayer warrior standing in the gap for them. She joined the Persecution Watch prayer team in 2013 and has been part of the core ever since. Before becoming the prayer call leader, she served in the role of prayer moderator since 2015. Blaine chose Nadia for her faithfulness to pray for the persecuted and her strong commitment to the Persecution Watch mission. We are blessed not only with her gift of prayer, but her genuine love for every brother and sister in Christ that comes on the call to pray. May the Lord continue to bless Nadia and the prayer team in the mission and their personal lives.

“Pray for us” is the number one request that we hear from the persecuted. As the members of the first century Church were moved by the Holy Spirit to pray, we too must continue to serve those suffering persecution by lifting them up to the Lord through prayer.

On occasion, persecuted brothers and sisters have been invited on the conference call to share the trials they are 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 are new to the call and cannot 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!

God bless and protect you in your faithfulness to serve.
