(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Saturday December 4, 2021 in a prayer conference call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch.
Dear Prayer Warriors, after my unsaved husband and I returned from visiting our daughter, her husband and their two children, boys 3-1/2 and 6, I felt such a separation from the Kingdom of God and this worlds’ system. It is hard not to become infected by the world system when surrounded by unbelief and ungodly media. It is more transmissible than covid. But we are overcomers who overcome the world, flesh, and the devil through the help of the Holy Spirit.
“They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.”
- Pray for believers who are surrounded by family and/or culture to overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony.
- Pray they do not love their lives unto death.
2 Corinthians 6:17
“Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing and I will receive you.”
- Pray for believers not to succumb to pressure to worship idols. The Holy Spirit is our firewall.
“Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them: Be holy, because I, the Lord your God, am holy.”
- Pray for a Spirit of Holiness; a desire to be Holy.
- Pray for a Spirit of repentance, but not condemnation.
- Pray they would fear God more than man.
“While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message.”
“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.”
- Pray for believers to be led by the Spirit to find and speak to unbelievers about the Holy Spirit and about salvation.
- Pray they would believe and receive the Holy Spirit.
- Pray for believers to be led by the Holy Spirit.
- Pray that through the Spirit believers would be able to forgive and pray for their enemies.
“If the Lord had not been on our side… . “
- Pray for protection; that they would escape from the evil plans of their enemies.
“But seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well.”
- Pray for provision.
- Pray to be Kingdom minded.
“From the days of John the Immerser until now, the Kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force.”
- Pray for the Kingdom of heaven to advance; souls being saved, believers growing in their faith; etc. .
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 express her faith openly.
- For the release of Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from Iran, and 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.
