United with the Persecuted


Share their stories Knowledge is power!



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

Dear Prayer Warriors, the Lord keeps putting in my spirit more about the spiritual maturity of the church rather than the physical; to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness that all else may be given to you.  Matthew 6:33

  • Pray for the church to seek His Kingdom and righteousness
  • Pray for more time to seek the Lord, listen, and hear.
  • Pray for church to give thanks to Yahweh for His great and precious promises.
  • Give thanks that He will provide for His children as we seek and trust in Him.
  • Luke 10:20 “However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”
  • Pray for the church to be able to rejoice at all times, knowing their names are written in heaven.
  • Habakkuk 2:4 “…His desires are not upright, but the just shall live by his faith.”
  • Galatians 3:11 “Clearly no one is justified before God by the law because “the righteous will live by faith.”

Hebrews 11 (all of it), for instance 

  • 11:33-35:  “Who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice and gained what was promised, who shut the mouth of lions, quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies. Women received back their dead, raised to life again.  Others were tortured and refused to be released, so that they might gain a better resurrection.
  • Pray for faith to be victorious and work miracles.
  • Pray for faith when being persecuted, being imprisoned, being tortured.
  • Hebrews 3:11 quoting Psalm 95 “So I declared on oath in my anger that they shall never enter my rest.”
  • Pray for the church to trust enough to rest in the Lord and have peace; for themselves and for their families.

Israel gave land away in the Oslo accords because they did not trust the Lord; they gave the authority over the Temple Mount away because they did not seek the Lord or trust in Him; they gave Gaza away, also with devastating consequences for the same reason. Let us not compromise with the enemy or give away what belongs to us.

  • Pray the Church would not compromise with demonic forces.
  • Joshua 9:14   “The men of Israel sampled their provisions, but did not inquire of the Lord” [regarding the Gibeonites’ deception’]
  • 1 Samuel 30   Amalekites raided Ziklag, burned the city and took their wives and children captive.  David asked Abiathar the priest to bring him a ephod and David inquired of the Lord.  The Lord said to pursue them, that they would recover everything. God supernaturally had them find a man who was able to lead them to the Amalekite camp where they successfully retrieved all the plunder and people.
  • 1 John 4:1 “Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are of God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
  • Pray they would inquire of the Holy Spirit before making any consequential decisions.
  • Pray we would test the spirits; to be able to discern.
  • Pray we would be able to be bold when told.
  • Pray our children will be rescued from the hand of the enemy.
  • Pray Satan would have to give back four times what he has stolen.

Psalm 135:1 “Praise the Lord, praise the name of the Lord, praise you servants of the Lord”

  • Let the servants of the Lord praise and thank Him from the rising of the sun until its going down.  Amen!

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.
