(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Saturday February 19, 2022 in a prayer conference call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch.
“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”
“By faith Abraham, when he was called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.”
- Pray the church would have faith to follow God’s lead even when it goes against our understanding.
- Pray for confirmation.
“The Lord is my light and my salvation, who shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?”
- Pray for faith to overcome fear.
“And the Lord said, ‘listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you he will see that they get justice and quickly. However, when the son of man comes, will he find faith on earth?”
Mark 11:24. “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
- Pray for faith to be persistent in prayer; to pray through.
- Pray for a strong enough faith not to waiver or be double minded.
“Instead, they were longing for a better country— a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.”
- Pray the believers would have faith for a mindset of eternity—to have God’s perspective.
“Abraham reasoned that God could raise the dead, and figuratively speaking, he did receive Isaac back from death.”
- Pray all of us would have faith to see family members born in the Spirit.
“By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau in regard to their future.”
“We have different gifts according to the Grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith.”
- Pray for faith to prophesy.
- Pray for faith to develop and use all our spiritual gifts.
“The people ate and were satisfied. Afterward the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. “
- Pray for faith for provision of all kinds.
“Now the people complained about their hardships in the hearing of the Lord, and when He heard them His anger was aroused. Then fire from the Lord burned among them and consumed some of the outskirts of the camp.”
- Pray against spirit of murmuring and complaining.
“By faith Moses’ parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he no ordinary child, they were not afraid of the king’s edict.”
- Pray the church would not turn back or deny Yeshua because of pressure from family, government, or anything else.
“He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a short time.”
- Pray that faith and the fear of God would keep the body of Messiah pure.
“By faith the people passed through the Red Sea as on dry land; but when the Egyptians tried to do so, they were drowned.“
- Pray that the trap the enemy sets would be reversed, and the persecutors would fall into their own trap.
“By faith the walls of Jericho fell after the people had marched around them for seven days.“
- Pray we as a church would listen carefully to the instructions of the Spirit so we can be strong and do exploits; to hear the Spirit clearly.
We are continuing to lift up these 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.
